Economy jitters won’t go away

Exit polls yesterday showed Hoosiers voted their pocketbooks. Theyâ??re worried about the economy.

That has a familiar ring. Many voters made a similar point four years ago when Gov. Mitch Daniels beat Gov. Joe Kernan by
promising to improve the economy.

Now, Jill Long Thompson is saying much the same. She defeated Jim Schellinger yesterday for the right to face Daniels, and
says Daniels has mismanaged economic development.

Who are voters upset with on the economy, Bush, Daniels, or someone or something else?
