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.

699 precincts still out—and 457 of these are in Jefferson or Orleans.

Right now Rick is carrying every parish in the state except Orleans Parish. Amazing!

But will he take 50% of the Parish—if he is to break 50 statewide, a plurality will not hack it, esp. with so much of Orleans out.

If Newt can’t win in the deep South, what is the point. Women hate him and I doubt his trophy wife standing next to him helps. It is time to rally behind the only one who can beat Romney. I am a Newt supporter but it is obvious he can’t win anymore states.

CNN basically saying LA a bunch of uneducated hicks who didn’t know any better. Unbelievable!

Yeah I heard that too and obviously don’t agree with that. They are disgusting but I just can’t stand Fox News on these type of nights.

Thought you would enjoy this. Got a letter in the mail this week with a weird sticker about anyone tampering with the mail can go to jail. Low and behold, it had a Rick for President sticker. Here it is festooned on my Buick Roadmaster Wagon that I use for slumlording. I am sure it irritates the Leftist and deadbeats that see it in Allentown and Bethlehem where I have my properties.

Don't panic wagon enthusiasts. I put the sticker on a magnate. It is not stuck to the woodgrain. That would be an abomination.

Out of those remaining parishes in Orleans, you’re looking at 3-4000 votes..total. There’s not a high vote number in NO proper. Romney probably gets another 2,200 votes there and Santorum another 1,300, if that.

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.

That's the kind of thing that people like to claim didn't affect their vote. That's because they think they'd sound stupid if something that silly-sounding had an effect on them. So they may not be willing to admit to themselves. But the fact is it certainly reinforced a perception of Romney that they already had or was already in the back of their head.

Bossier Parish (Shreveport) is only 75% reported and they’re going heavily for Santorum over Romney (right now 56 - 24). Rick might make up some ground there.

Pelosi is a knat, but Obama is evil, so it’s Obama for the oven.

I’m thinking might as well write off the rest of the primaries and the general since it won’t be Newt, and the other two won’t beat Obama and concentrate on TEOTWAWKI.

Left eye is okay, next eye is April 19. If both eyes have cataracts, seeing right won’t happen until both are done. Eyes can’t sinc together right at the present time but it’s better since I got an eyeglass lens for left eye in eyeglasses. Really, it’s taking two months to get this finished - a real bother with seeing right.

Don’t use CNN, just Google primary louisiana. They put the AP primary results right on the results page and they’re not rounded. 95% in and Santorum has 49.1%. This, of course, goes back to why I’ve been saying Gingrich staying in is handing Romney delegates. He’s preventing Santorum from getting to 50% and using the winner-take-all rules to shut Romney out of delegates. Gingrich is shooting himself in the foot by helping stop a convention floor fight from happening by helping Romney make sure he gets enough delegates to win outright.

I thought so, too, but am not finding that’s the case. What I’ve found is it’s proportional for candidates that get at least 25% of the vote....it gets confusing after those rules. But I did not find that Lousiana is one of those winner take all after 50%.

I know, you can say it over and over until you are blue in the face, but Two-State Newt is still desperately looking for that third state. I bet he is eyeing NC, AR, TX, or CA. He seems to think that SC and GA are the only states.

That’s true, Green Papers has nothing saying this state switches to WTA at 50%. These 20 delegates are strictly proportional for any candidate getting over 25% of the vote. Unfortunately Romney hit that threshold by a narrow margin. And any other candidate dropping out wouldn’t have stopped him from doing so.

The Papers say 18 more delegates are chosen later, 3 from each district. Supposedly the party can choose if those are tied to the results of the voting or not.

8 other delegates appear to simply be appointed by the party elites and are not bound to any candidate.

Huckabee won LA in 2008 but got NO delegates at all. The system is rigged toward Romney.

If Newt wanted to help, he would suspend his campaign without releasing his delegates. Then work on the RNC Rules Committee for getting FL/AZ properly seated in according with rule 16B

Also, although it looks too late for TX, would be nice to re-write the rules to make it WTA. In fact, work on the 2012 platform and with the Southern State Legislatures to ensure that every Southern/Midwest State (ND, SD, KS, NE, OK, TX,MS, LA, AL, GA, SC, TN, KY, and WV) is WTA. This would prevent a moderate in the future from having an advantage in the Moderate/liberal states.

Not exactly.

When McCain clinched the nomination in March, LA hadn’t met to assign their delegates based on the results. Huckabee dropped out of the race after McCain won OH and TX and clinched the nomination, which released his earned delegates to support the nominee.

Sounds like they changed their rules last year. These 20 are supposed to be allocated proportionally to the candidates over 25%. The remaining 26 seem to follow the old method and can either be told to support whoever the party wants or choose for themselves.

Green Papers is Projecting a 13-7 split among the 20 delegates based on the primary vote % of those contenders that finished over 25% (Rick 65%, Mitt 35%)

Aint that some crap. Romney gets a 42-12 delegate split in IL for a 47-35% result over Santorum. Santorum wins by nearly double in LA, and yet Romney gets nearly 7 delegates for just barely crossing the 25% threshhold?

WTF? This system needs to be changed.

“I read here where Rick has many very negative ads against Newt. I thought he had no money besides no character.”

I’m sure Rick has money coming in after his latest wins. I don’t think he is wasting his money on Newt since his threat is from Romeny. Feel sure that’s where his money is going.

Doubt if Newt can raise money after this one.

Down to 39 outstanding—including 19 from Jefferson, 4 from Orleans, and 6 from East Baton Rouge, all of which are among Santorum’s weakest areas. He may just drop below 49.00

Looking at the Congressional Districts, it appears Santorum carried everyone, since the 3rd (Most of NO) absorbed the 7th (Central LA) and Romney’s margins aren’t anywhere near enough to offset it. And the 1st (parts of NO includes parts on the northern shore of the Lake).

So now the question is what will the delegates do on June 2?

(1) Ignore the Primary Results
(2) Make the CD’s WTA and give Santorum all 3
(3) Make the CD’s Proportional and Give Santorum 12 and Romney 6

Option 3 is what they’ll probably go with I’d suspect, meaning Romney will get 13 delegates out of LA, enough to keep him on pace for 1,144.

One outstanding from Jefferson—can’t tell which one, as 10 have no Republican votes recorded. I see that Gingrich carried a precinct in the Parish -number 212A- with 100% of the vote (1).
