Based on exit polling, CNN is now predicting a ‘strong’ victory for Barack Obama in South Carolina.
The cable network was not ranking Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for second and third place.
But the AP is ranking Edwards third.
About half the voters were black, according to polling place interviews, and four out of five supported Obama. Black women turned out in particularly large numbers. Clinton and Edwards each won roughly 40 percent of the white vote, with about 25 percent going to Obama, the first-term Illinois senator.
