The economy was on the minds of many Colorado voters this year.

Preliminary results from a telephone poll conducted for The Associated Press and television networks showed about seven in 10 chose the economy as the most important issue facing the nation, over health care, the war in Afghanistan and illegal immigration.

About eight in 10 are at least somewhat worried about the direction of the nation's economy in the next year.

The poll of 1,095 voters found about half think the new federal health care law should be repealed. Roughly six in 10 think most illegal immigrants working in the U.S. should get a chance to apply for legal status.

They're roughly split on how Barack Obama is handling his presidency.
