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. Ron Paul had just 5 percent of the counted vote.
Santorum also did well among those who consider the economy the most important issue of the election. Among those voters, Santorum had 44 percent support, compared to 33 percent support for Romney, according to CBS News exit polls. The economy was considered the top factor among Republican voters in Louisiana Saturday.

“I believe anybody still supporting Newt, is doing so for a Romney rathaer than Santorum win.”
And I believe that anyone who believes that is an imbecile.
Amen. I voted fir and continue to support Newt. I want nothing to do with Rombama.
I supported Gingrich all the way until the FL primary. His primary ideas are great. But as Rush says elections is about winning. After Santorum’s one day trifecta, then it because clear to me that Santorum was the guy. This has proved all too true. Yet he keeps getting attacked mercilessly on FR. We are not alone here on FR, several commentators have demanded Gingrich to quit. This is what you do when you lose elections be it Bachmann, Cain, or Perry. Gingrich himself demanded Santorum to quit after just one win in South Carolina. Instead, he stubbornly persists and as internal polling data confirm he siphons off votes that could go to Santorum and sink Romney. Certainly this could have occurred in MI and OH. That much is undeniable. But yet we continue to field indefensible attack on a winning candidate. That we cannot abide.
“Everyone who believes that is an imbecile”
And “imbecile” is not an argument and everyone who use it as an argument is an ....huuuuuh . Ah ah !
is an .....huuuuuh or a troll or both of the above .
“And imbecile is not an argument and everyone who use it as an argument is an ....huuuuuh . Ah ah !”
No it’s not an “argument”, it’s an adjective describing someone who made an ignorant assumption, then publicized it.
If it’s not an argument and pretends to “describe someone” who
made a so-called “ignorant assumption” without any begining of an argument it’s huuuuuh a stupid useless sentence and a waste a time, of place and an intellectual pollution
Santorum got 20 delegates in La.
Ah, the judge not lie.
Really...how’s that Newt thing workin’ our for ya? Going to vote for Romney, eh!?
“Really...hows that Newt thing workin our for ya? Going to vote for Romney, eh!?”
You’re now officially in imbecile territory.
English your second (or third) language? Spare me your pompous, incoherent babbling.
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm still supporting Newt because both Romney and Santorum are spineless, big-government loving go along to get along types. Romney wants to steal the money out of your wallet, and Santorum wants to steal the condom, too. No thanks on either of them.
The fact that so many "conservatives" are "flocking to Santorum" speaks more as to the debased and degenerate trends in modern American conservatism than anything else.
Santorum got 20 delegates in La.
How you figure that?
It was on the news, deport. Did you think I figured that out myself? Deport, you know me better than that! I repeated what they said on the news.
Santorum got 13, Romney 7.
Thank you. Why in the world did they say last night that Santorum got 20? One would think they would confirm before reporting. Oh wait. What am I saying. Thank you for the correction.
OK. The news makes it official I guess. I thought La was a proportional allocation for those above 25% of the vote total. Take care.
Thank you deport. It is always good to see you.
