«Sen. Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic primary in Kentucky by a wide margin, CNN projects

With 23 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton was leading Barack Obama by 12 percentage points.
But polls leading up to the primary showed Clinton with a commanding lead -- beating Obama by about 30 percentage points.

There are 3,253 pledged delegates, and Obama, even with a poor showing Tuesday, should easily top the 1,627 delegates needed to gain a majority.

A candidate needs 2,026 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.
Obama has 1,929 total delegates, while Clinton has 1,741.
The Kentucky and Oregon primaries hold 103 delegates combined. Obama needs 15 more to achieve a majority of the pledged delegates -- the delegates won either in state caucuses or primaries.
Obama is the favorite in Oregon, where a CNN poll of polls indicates that he has a lead of 10 percentage points. » in CNN -0h 45m -hora de Lisboa
