CONCORD, N.H.—Preliminary results from exit polls for The Associated Press show New Hampshire voters are overwhelmingly unhappy with the federal government, though they're split on President Barack Obama's job performance, tax cuts and health care.

Voters who are dissatisfied or angry about the way government is working outnumber those who are enthusiastic or satisfied by more than 2 to 1.

Close to half want to repeal Obama's health care legislation, but a third want to expand it and the rest want to leave it alone.

Voters were evenly divided over whether to extend the Bush administration tax cuts for everyone or only for families earning less than $250,000 a year.

Nearly nine out of 10 voters said they were worried about the direction of the nation's economy in the next year.
