    Actually, I’m not sure what demographic Madonna’s audience would fall into, but I’m pretty sure it’s not any of the traditional Republican constituencies. And yet … Madonna drew some jeers from her crowd in New Orleans on Saturday night after she told audience members to vote for President Obama, the Associated Press reports. “Who’s registered to vote?” she said, adding, “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.” The comment was followed by boos and some walk outs from the audience. Yeah, but were they Voguing on their way out?

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Madonna drew boos and triggered a walkout by several concertgoers after she touted President Barack Obama on her "MDNA Tour" in New Orleans. The Material Girl asked during Saturday night's performance: "Who's registered to vote?" She added: "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." Drawing boos in touting Obama over Republican Mitt Romney, Madonna followed: "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

    Romney and his super PAC have taken millions from funders with strong green streaks — despite the fact that the former Massachusetts governor has run to the right in the primary, proclaiming doubts about global-warming science and trashing President Barack Obama’s greenhouse gas emissions policies. Julian Robertson, founder of the Tiger Management hedge fund, helped put cap-and-trade legislation on the map with $60 million in contributions over the past decade to the Environmental Defense Fund. Now, Robertson has given $1.25 million to Romney’s Restore our Future super PAC, plus the maximum $2,500 to the Romney campaign. Other green-minded financial backers...

    Rick Santorum is likely to win Louisiana’s Saturday primary but a victory there won’t help him much, say Republican strategists. “Winning Louisiana does nothing in the grand scheme of things,” said GOP strategist Tyler Harber. “It won’t give a huge boost of support to Rick Santorum. Winning these contests isn’t as important. It’s now about winning the delegates.”

    Rick Santorum will win the Louisiana primary Saturday, CBS News projects. The victory is fresh evidence of the weakness of front-runner Mitt Romney, who is nonetheless increasingly likely to be the Republican who takes on President Obama in November. According to exit polls, Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator and social conservative, did well among evangelicals, Catholics and those who identify themselves as "very conservative." With 16 of 4,267 precincts reporting, Santorum had about 40 percent of the vote, while second place Romney had 31 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was a distant third with 21 percent and Texas Rep....

    Rick Santorum looked for a win in Louisiana's primary Saturday to sustain his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. The former Pennsylvania senator badly needed a rebound after a decisive loss to front-runner Mitt Romney earlier in the week that moved party stalwarts to rally around the former Massachusetts governor and urge Santorum to drop out of the race. -snip- Even before polls opened Saturday, Romney was looking past the results and toward the general election.

    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.

    ABC News projects that Rick Santorum will win the Louisiana Republican primary. Exit polls indicated that Louisiana’s primary saw a high turnout of voters who identified as very conservative — a group that has typically favored Santorum. Also helping Santorum was a high turnout of religious voters — nearly two-thirds of voters in today’s primary said that they go to church at least once a week. Santorum has so far performed very well in the South, winning primaries in Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee. He was favored to carry Louisiana. Recent polling showed him with a comfortable lead over the...

    .......Chelsey Dargis, 21, who is studying to be a teacher, voted in Metairie for Mr. Romney because she said she thought he would reach out to independents. “I have Republican qualities, but I also agree with Democrats,” Ms. Dargis said, citing her approval of abortion rights and same-sex marriage. “I like Mitt Romney better because he once was a Democrat. He still has to have somewhat of the mind-set of a Democrat.”

    Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush might want Republicans to unite behind the Romney banner after his big Illinois win on Tuesday, but Louisiana Republicans have other ideas. In Rasmussen’s new poll before the state’s closed primary on Saturday, Rick Santorum has a 12-point lead, and by 20 points in a two man race — even though almost three-quarters of the likely voters surveyed think Romney will win the nomination anyway: Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is comfortably ahead in Louisiana with that state’s Republican Primary just two days away.A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters in...
