Obama, as expected, takes Georgia
by UPI

ATLANTA - U.S. Democrat Barack Obama, as expected, was the apparent winner in Georgia's Super Tuesday presidential primary, considerably outdistancing Hillary Clinton.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said immediately after the polls closed that there was no clear winner yet on the Republican side, where John McCain, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee were neck and neck.

Exit polls showed up to one-third of Republicans making up their minds within the last three days.

Two polls released during the weekend produced widely different results, but both predicted an Obama win, one narrow and one a crushing victory. In both parties, only Obama ran television spots in the state.

Obama received support from one in six black voters, The Washington Post said. Other reports said he benefited greatly from hordes of new young voters coming to the polls.

But as in all Democratic contests Tuesday, delegates to the national convention would be allocated in proportion to the vote.
