ATLANTA — Turnout in Tuesday’s presidential preference primary in Georgia set a record in the state, as 44 percent of active registered voters cast a ballot.
More than 2 million Georgians voted and, interestingly, for a state controlled by Republicans, more of than half of them did so in the Democratic contest.
Barack Obama crushed rival Hillary Rodham Clinton in that Georgia showdown, winning nearly every demographic category except white women, according to exit polls conducted for The Associated Press and television networks.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, 1,054,831 Democratic ballots had been cast, compared to 975,770 GOP ballots, according to returns tallied for The Associated Press.
