Polls in the first Super Tuesday primary state have closed, and NPR projects that Barack Obama will win the state's Democratic primary over rival Hillary Clinton. The Republican race among Mike Huckabee, John McCain and Mitt Romney is considered too close to call.

With 87 Democratic and 72 Republican delegates at stake, it's the largest prize in the South for the Democrats on Super Tuesday.

Melissa Block talks with Adam Hochberg, who's covering the Democrats at Atlanta's long-time Democratic hang out, Manuel's Tavern.

Block also talks with Kathy Lohr, who's with Republicans watching the returns come in at Five Seasons Brewing Co. in suburban Atlanta.
