Louisiana Primary Open Thread

The Polls close in a little more than an hour or 9:00pm Eastern. However, the exit polls are starting to come in.

Fox News exit polls report the following:

  • Santorum: 45%
  • Romney: 30%
  • Gingrich: 16.5%
  • Paul: 6.5%

According to Louisiana rules, 20 delegates are being allotted tonight. They will be rewarded proportionately to whichever candidates poll 25% or greater. So if the Fox numbers are accurate, the delegate count should look something like the following:

  • Santorum: 12
  • Romney: 8
  • Gingrich: 0
  • Paul: 0

Remember, the numbers above are only based upon one set of exit polls and not the actual vote tally.We will learn later tonight what the real numbers will be.

Have at it in the comments.
