The exit polls don't look good for Rick Santorum in Ohio, but there are a few interesting breakdowns that show where he's strong.
Here's one: Among the young: Santorum won by significant margins. Among 17-29 year-olds, he won by 8 points, and he won 30-44 year-olds by 9 points.
Unfortunately for Santorum, 60 percent of the vote was cast by people over age 50, and they went heavily for Romney.
A few additional points from the Ohio exits:
- 61% of Ohio voters say they'll be satisfied if Santorum gets the nod. 57% if Romney gets it.
- Ohio voters who think Romney is "too conservative" (8%) were too small a sample to break out poll results.
- Ohio voters who think Paul is too conservative went 45% for Romney. Voters who think Paul is not conservative enough went 39% for Romney. Among voters who described Paul's views as "about right," it was a three-way tie between Romney, Paul and Santorum.
- 10% of Ohio GOP voters will vote Republican this fall only if their canddiate wins.
- Among Ohio voters most interested in supporting a "true conservative," Romney got 13%.
- Of those in Ohio who think Romney is best bet to beat Obama, 15% voted for Santorum anyway.
