(CNN)—A record 23 states will hold primaries and caucuses on Super Tuesday. Long lines, unprecedented numbers of absentee ballots, and record turnouts are likely to play a big role in determining when results are projected.
Georgia’s primary is expected to be the first definitive Super Tuesday outcome – the state’s results may be available in the 7 p.m. hour, shortly after polls close there. The outcomes of Massachusetts, New Jersey, Delaware and Connecticut will likely be projected in the 8 p.m. hour, followed by New York sometime after 9 p.m. ET.
California’s polls are the last to close Tuesday - at 8 p.m. PT, 11 p.m. ET - but the results might not be clear for hours. With an expected 1 to 2 million absentee ballots, along with the nation’s largest number of registered voters, the results may not be known until Wednesday morning.

Not vote for a Novice for the Toughest Job in the World.
Hillary Clinton 2008.
Voted for Bush twice aren't you ashamed?
Dem08– I couldn't agree with you more that policy views and experience are the best reasons to vote for a candidate. However, all things being equal, you have to look at electability too. Clinton and Obama are VERY similar on policy. I happen to like Obama's healthcare plan better. I like his ideas for how to handle Iraq. I am not basing my decision solely on who can win in November. That being said–without very serious differences in the two candidates, that should surely be considered.
It's so funny that Obama supporters brush off the prosperity of the 90's (during Clinton Presidency) saying it had nothing to do with President Clinton. It had a lot to do with President Clinton and his economic policies.
I bet if Obama was the Governor of Illinois and if the state was properous during his term, they would be giving Obama all the credit and singing his praises.
In September 2001 the world was on our side.
In 2003 we invaded Iraq and the world said "hold up a minute..."
They were STILL willing to give us the benefit of the doubt that we had a cowboy in the White House and it wasn't our fault.
Then– we re-elected him. The world said boo.
In 2008– we have a chance to heal our relationship with the world overnight. How? Not by continuing a 30 year, two family dynasty of power. We do it by electing a man with multi-cultural, multi-racial, and multi-religious credentials.
Hillary supporters... go ahead and bash me over the head for saying that, but before you do...
Why is everyone so freakin ANGRY?
Can't we all just talk about it?
I think Hillary would be WAY ahead now if it weren't for the nasty, biased and untrue reporting- like CNNs bogus headline about Hillary crying. She is not just trying to present her platform, but she has to fight against all the people who hate her. Why do they hate her? Either they claim she has no experience- so what are they basing their hate on? Or they feel she is too status quo- which is it? And why the hate. If she has no true experience, then she can NOT BE just more of the same, or even more of the Clinton "legacy". She is SO deserving, that she has many supporters even as the Media and other haters try to smear her. She will rise because truth and intelligence and beauty and virtue ALWAYS will rise. Power to you sister. Carry on. Women like you take the crap so that society can evolve and advance. It is a long walk. Good for you for being willing to take that walk.
THANKS BOB FOR PRINTING THE FACTS ABOVE! HILLARY IS AHEAD BY DOUBLE DIGITS IN EARLY VOTING! HOW SWEET IT IS! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH KAY AS WELL IF OBAMA HAD ANYTHING POSITIVE ABOUT HIMSELF HE WOULDN'T NEED OPRAH TO BACK HIM! HILLARY DOES ALL THIS ON HER OWN! THERE SHOULD BE NO QUESTION WHO WILL WIN! GO HILLARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone else 'smell' Clinton plants in the room...?
I am very concerned about Democracy in America, our elections are a joke, and as it is we are stuck with real duds to elect , and there is one to whom the media refused to give equal coverage, who is the best of all , he goes by the Constitution and lives it, Ron Paul and there is no question that the media and parties are afraid of him. It appears that we will no doubt be getting more of the same and the American people have no clue. Some do but ........ If a winner pops up tomorrow, I wonder if I will be able to vote in this primary, I am from Ohio and we dont vote until March 4th, oh well that is what democracy is getting to in this country.
If and thats a big IF, Obama doesn't win tomorrow, then I rather vote for McCain than Hillary.
Obama – 08
I live in Illinois and voted for Obama to become my state senator. I now regret that I did, because I feel he just took the job to have a crack at the presidency. I don't feel he's done very much for the citizens of Illinois as senator. I hear his talk of change and I think it's empty rhetoric, anybody who gets elected will be changing things. Change is not enough, you need change in a positive direction. When Obama talks of change and then runs to get endorsements from long time politicos, I ask who does he think he is fooling. When he takes money from Exelon or Rezko how is he different from old-time politicians? (I guess giving it to charity after he gets caught, somehow makes it allright.) When he accuses others of playing the race card and how he is the great unifier, yet goes to a church that is reverse racist (tucc.org, see for yourself), how substantially is he different? I am afraid if he gets the Democratic nomination the republicans will chew him up, and we might get stuck with a neo-bush like Romney or involved in a 100-year war with McCain. At least Hillary has already been tried by fire, and she doesn't act like she's the savior of the human race. As a man I admire the strength she has shown.
BTW occasionally my girlfriend eyes might well up with tears, but she's very capable and as strong internally as any man I've ever known.
Vote for Edwards on Super Tuesday. Let the media know the public should decide who should run for President-not the media.
Vote BO for real change! Learn from SC voters, if we all come out and vote, we will be able to change the color of White House! Don't be deterred by the poll. Just do it, vote for BO!
Yeah, that's it Obama lovers, the Republicans are keeping a big book of all of Hillary's secrets. The secrets they didn't use in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2006.....Morons! I think even Mike Gravel could win the White House if nominated for the Dems, but Obama would be a worry in a General Election because of his lack of achievement, gravitas, his stutter and his greenness. He really is a weak candidate and apart from an abiliy to waffle and bloviate, he's got nothing on Hillary. Of course if Obama winds the nomination I think John McCain should be President just to stick it up Oprah and Ted Kennedy.
sadly we Americans have to deal with people who hold back the progress and tolerance of our nation- ignorant people like Jimmy at 4:57, who think Obama isn't qualified to be president because of his middle name and the fact that his father wasn't there for him as a kid. Sad.
Now you make up your own version of a poll to support your views.
We have always watched your network..And been proud to do do so.
However it has become very evident you play favorites..
And, are more interested in this election being "sport and drama"
to increase your ratings... more then being interested in reporting news
in a fair way.
It it very clear you simply have no respect for credible
How sad! For all of us who supported you all these years.
It is becoming more and more obvious you hold a disdain for people
who ask questions. instead of maybe listening to our concerns.
It seems to be all about the ratings and your opinions. Railroading
concerns of your loyal viewers.
And as a 50+viewer ...you have shown how much you could care less
about our concerns
Hey "Incredulous" – you may want to google it... JFK had 6 years in the House and then went to the Senate. BHO was elected to the Senate, spent his first year promoting his book and then started his Presidential bid. He is not ready.
I am going to have to take some Pepto to listen to the returns Tuesday evening if Georgia is first! It will be touted as an overwhelming victory for Obama!!! (Someone on another thread said Snoop Dog could have won S. Carolina and could win Georgia the same way). Georgia is not a TYPICAL SCENARIO and once Obama wins it (which most expect) I hope CNN can control their bias and wait for the other states to start coming in.
Why do I get the feeling that most of the people supporting Obama are College kids that wear hoodies with a picture of Oprah on the front?
to incredulous, didn't Bill Clinton leave office with an approval rating of over 70%? If so many people hate Bill, why are his approval ratings so high and they're still over 60%. This goes to show how powerful the republican smear machine is, even some so-called Dems are parrotting the same vile lies, the right wing invented. Obama cannot win in Nov. he can't even unite the Democratic party, how can he unite the country. He will be president someday but not in 2009. And if the Obama supporters don't lighten up on their criticism of Hillary and Bill and take it off such a personal note, you will fracture the Democratic party and drive moderates like me out. And I'v worked for theparty since 1968. How long have you been a Dem, incredulous?
If Oprah is for him I am against him!
What is going on... wake up! Republicans are voting in the Democratic primaries and pulling Obama's lever. Why? Because Obama doesn't have the credentials or experience... have you really checked his accomplishments? Wake up! Hillary, like it or not, is a much stronger Democratic candidate and potential president based on credentials, experience, and access. I believe the Republican's strategy is to create a false groundswell if interest in Obama to defeat Hillary before she defeats them in a general election. Please, check out Obama's accomplishments and tell me if you want him running our country.
an in-depth look at Clinton’s claim that she has brought change to people’s lives for 35 years. “Clinton worked at the Children's Defense Fund for less than a year, and that's the only full-time job in the nonprofit sector she's ever had. She also worked briefly as a law professor.
Clinton spent the bulk of her career — 15 of those 35 years — at one of Arkansas' most prestigious corporate law firms, where she represented big companies and served on corporate boards. Neither she nor her surrogates, however, ever mention that on the campaign trail. Her campaign Web site biography devotes six paragraphs to her pro bono legal work for the poor but sums up the bulk of her experience in one sentence: ‘She also continued her legal career as a partner in a law firm.'”
Clinton did public service work during her time at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock. She served on the board of the Legal Services Corp. during and took on several tasks as the state's first lady. But these were all activities on the margins of her professional life, working as a corporate lawyer, representing corporations.
LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION?
YOUR A WOMEN AND YOU WANT TO VOTE FOR HILARY.
BUT DO YOU APPROVE OF HER TREACHEROUS TACTICS, RANGING FROM DISTORTING OBAMAS RECORD, HIRING HER HUSBAND TO DO THE DIRTY WORK, INTRODUCING THE RACE CARD, CRYING TWICE TO GET VOTES, MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF FLORIDA AND NEVADA UNION WORKERS RIGHT TO VOTE ONLY IF IT BENEFITED HER CAMPAIGN?
AS A WOMEN, DOES THIS MAKE YOU PROUD TO SAY THIS IS GOOD ETHICAL BEHAVIOR OR ANOTHER WOMEN THAT YOU SUPPORT?
suppose i offer you a leader that could would respect womens rights, is honourable, and can be trusted to do whats rights and bring the country together?
which is the BETTER CHOICE?
i feel every women honest with herself would choose OBAMA.
Incredulous...this is the 4th time I have read or heard 30 years of Clinton and Bush....Now,
Daddy Bush 4 years
Clinton .........8 years
GW Bush......8 years
Can't Americans add anymore or am I missing a Bush or Clinton somewhere?
As a 40year old American woman i would like first to congratulate my home team "the NY GIANTS" for their victorious win…"SUPER GIANTS"….I was born in Portugal but came to the US at the age of 10 and have been an American citizen for 20 years, I am proud to call myself an AMERICAN, not a "Portuguese-American" not a "European-American but just an AMERICAN because that's what i am, that's how i feel, and for the first time in my life i will vote. Im from Newark, New Jersey , a real melting pot in the US, and my vote without a doubt goes to Hillary Clinton, and in November if Hillary is not in the race then i will have to vote republican.
"Miracles happen, just believe…………………..
GO GIANTS !!!!
Are you kidding me? Obama is running against Hillary w/ 35 years of experience and Bill, the popular president among Democrats, yet he is winning. You think McCain is any match for him. Sure, they will bring out the 'experience' thing, but so what, Hillary has brought out the 'experience' thing from day one.
Both Hillary and Obama can beat McCain because the majority of people are against this war, and McCain wants to prolong to 100 years +.
Let the Republican nominate McCain, the Democrats will beat him. Nothing bad about him aside from his standing on this war, which we know will bankrupt the country and kill many more people. Out of conscience, I will hold my nose and vote for Hillary if needed. But if Obama wins the Democratic nomination, I'll be proud to be a Democrat and an American again.
