The younger, newer GOP caucus-goers tonight went for Ron Paul, who had the support of more than half the voters under age 30, and 38% of those attending their first caucus, according to entrance polls.
Evangelicals, who still represent roughly three-fifths of caucus-goers, went for Rick Santorum: 30 % named him their top pick – but Ron Paul was second, at 21%. Mitt Romney’s 13% share may have placed him a distant third in that category, essentially tied with Newt Gingrich’s 14% and Rick Perry’s 13 – but among non-evangelicals, he led the pack, with 35% of that vote, to Ron Paul’s 28.
