Live Election Results: Louisiana
CNN ^ | 3/24/2012

Posted on 03/24/2012 6:01:54 PM PDT by icwhatudo

When To Start Watching: Polls will close for the Louisiana Republican primary at 8 p.m. CDT (9 p.m. EDT). Results will begin to come in around 8:30 p.m. CDT.

What's At Stake: Twenty of the state's 46 delegates are up for grabs Saturday, divided proportionately among all candidates who receive more than 25 percent of the vote in the state. Louisiana hosts a closed primary, meaning only registered Republicans may vote for the four candidates in the GOP contest.

Santorum looks to pick up his tenth state as it looks like Romney will continue to be rejected by the deep south.

With 1% reporting, CNN declares Santorum the winner.

LOL-That didn’t take long!

Mittens loses another state!

Wonder if Drudge will give this as much press as Mittens victories in Guam and Puerto Rico.

FOX News's Devoted Romney-Pimp and Anchor-Wife-in-Training:
We at FOX know Mitt Romney has the perfect height.
And his feet are the perfect shape.
And his hair is perfect, too.
Willard smells so good, that I tingle.
So why would it matter that he imposed RomneyCARE,
gay marriage, AND covered up the BIG DIG?
So why would it matter to us if he lost yet another primary?
Or if he imposed RomneyCARE,
gay marriage, AND covered up the BIG DIG?
Nope. Our love of Mitt Romney is forever
and we will proclaim him the "frontrunner"
here at FOX/BAIN News
… even when you laugh on the floor knowing
it is obviously not true.

On Fox they’re trying to tell Romney how to reverse the etch-a-sketch curse. They’re saying to tell Santorum that he was sketch since he backed Romney 4 years ago.

Hell, it wasn’t Santorum that brought up etch-a-sketch!

Looks like FNC is calling it for Santorum 39% - Myth 30% Newt 22% - Paul 6% with only 1% percent of the votes in.

Early returns show Gingrich really drawing at Saint Rick’s expense. This will be enough to kept Two-State Newt around as he searches for State No. 3.

Fox News sucks so badly especially on primary nights that I mostly watch CNN....who would have thunk it just a year ago. Fox is so in bed with Romney that they don’t pay any attention to the other candidates and errored on who brilliantly brought up the etch-a-sketch. They continue to make fools of themselves.

S - 39%
R - 30%
G - 22%

There's a method to their madness. They called IL early while Romney's lead was greatest. They called LA early while Rick's lead is probably at its lowest.

All about making Sketch look good.

I saw a couple lib comments in the CNN comments section. One stated that people from the South are brainwashed and stupid, and the other stated that Santorum won because the people are a bunch of Evangelical bigots.

It’s not winner take all, so Santorum and Romeny get the delegates. Think I heard them say Newt and Paul wouldn’t get any.

With 4% counted

S - 40%
R - 30%
G - 22%
P - 5%

Roughly 70% of Louisiana Republicans want someone other than Romney.

LA is a church going group, lots of Catholics.

As far as being educated, they’re a mixed bunch. It’s more exact to say they don’t have the kind of money Mitt does. There are wealthy people, but not like him.

Nonsense. It's called exit polling and waiting for enough results to verify them. The chameleon won Virginia 60/40 over RuPaul but the networks couldn't call it for quite awhile because not enough returns had come in to verify the exit polling. There were enough districts the loon had done well in to force a delay in calling the state for Willard.

People really need to quit with the silly conspiracy stuff. Santorum apparently won decisively enough in Louisiana exit polling that they didn't need to wait to make the call.

I think Marcella was right. I'm looking at the exit polls posted on CNN. Some really interesting things in the LA polls.

This one is particularly interesting:

Vote if Only Romney and Santorum on Ballot

Romney 36%
Santorum 59%
Other 4%

It's hard when you hear supposed news anchors discounting the entire South in order to prop up Romney.

Also, I keep seeing and hearing from Ann Romney now with the "can't we all just get along" speech. No more name-calling, let's focus on the issues. This from the wife of the guy who started the scorched earth campaigns

Excellent!

With 10% of the vote in, Rick is leading Romney 41% to 30%. Orleans Parrish hasn’t reported yet, so that might help Romney. Hopefully the other parts of the state will keep the margin in double digits.

Go Rick!

I just now saw it.


BREAKING NEWS:

An ambulance has been called to Karl Rove’s motel room.

Details are sketchy, but witnesses report that they heard what sounded like an “exploding head”. Apparently a smashed Etch-a-Sketch was found on the floor just outside of his room.

Fox News just arrived on scene, but the news crew will be unable to come on camera until they all stop crying and quit threatening group suicide.

Developing.......

there were three questions about the etch a sketch comment in the exit polling. It did not seem to be a major factor, but it did have an impact.

Dear Rick,

From now until April 3, please camp out in WI and make sure you get all the delegates except Madison/Milwaukee districts.

And sometime this week, go visit Frederick, Hagerstown, and Cumberland MD to ensure you win the 6th District. Then visit Bel Air and Salisbury to ensure you win the 1st District.

If this itinerary does not match your teams, please change it to do so. Thanks.

I get it, but for goodness sakes at least use some logic before jumping to these conspiracy theories.

The networks all tend to call these at races at almost the exact same moment - and they all want to be first if they can. They are all using the same exit poll numbers and the same formulas in their election rooms. This stuff is almost a science at this point. The exit polls are taken from a bunch of different precincts and they match those results against the actual returns. In some cases the exit poll results are so overwhelming, such as tonight in Louisiana, that they can make a call as soon as the polls close. They could also make a near immediate call in Illinois for the same reason. In Illinois, Willard's lead shrank as the results came in because urban areas reported first, but the end result was a 10 point win for him. In Virginia for example, the chameleon beat RuPaul by near 20 points, but because Ron did very well in a few districts it forces them to be more cautious and they couldn't make the call for Mitt till a half hour after the polls closed. There is no conspiracy here.

Rick now leading 48% to 27% (Woo hoo!!) with 25% reporting.

Orleans Parrish will undoubtedly narrow that gap when it starts reporting, but still a great night for Rick!
