Politico's Values Exit Poll Shows Strong Trend Favorable To Trump

This is interesting - Exit Polls are notoriously unreliable, and in this election more than any other.
However Politico, a news outlet that is pretty unfriendly to Trump, did an exit poll asking voters about what guiding values were important to them rather than the candidate they picked.
The results so far seem to be pretty favorable towards Trump:

More voters this year are looking for a strong leader than in previous presidential elections, according to an early morning exit poll, whose results could shift significantly over the course of Election Day.
The first results from the Morning Consult/POLITICO Exit Poll of early and Election-Day voters also show few voters are feeling joy and pride at the climax of the campaign.
Asked what characteristic is most important for the next president, 36 percent of voters say they want a “strong leader,” 29 percent want “a vision for the future,” 16 percent want someone who “cares about people like me” and another 16 percent said they want someone who “shares my values.”
The percentage of voters thus far who say they want a strong leader – a characterization Donald Trump’s team made central to his campaign – is twice the percentage who said they were looking for a strong leader in the 2012 National Election Pool exit poll...
