Exit poll of LA GOP presidential voters say few consider Etch A Sketch flap important
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Early results of an exit poll of voters in Louisiana's Republican presidential primary show few saying they were influenced by comments by an aide to Mitt Romney likening his campaign's tactics to an Etch A Sketch toy.
Only about 1 in 5 people in the survey say the remarks were important to their vote.
Asked whether Romney's positions in the GOP primary might make him too conservative for more moderate voters in November's general election, the aide had said Romney's campaign could shake things up like an Etch A Sketch toy. Romney's opponents said the remark shows he shifts his views too easily.
The exit poll shows more think Romney would be a stronger candidate than Rick Santorum this fall, but more say Santorum understands average people better than Romney.
