Preliminary figures show Obama with a slight lead among whites, and he and Clinton splitting the women's vote. Obama's strength also was coming from men and the young.
On the Republican side, evangelicals are not yet embracing McCain.
About a quarter of the voters in the Republican primary were born-again, evangelical Christians, and they voted 2-to-1 for Huckabee over McCain. Evangelical voters have been the base of the ordained Baptist minister's support.
