Romney Struggles Mightily With Evangelicals, 'Very Conservative' Voters

Romney will certainly need these two demographics in the general if he is going to unseat President Obama. From The Washington Post's Dan Baltz:

Romney has won every state that has had an exit poll and in which white, evangelical Christians accounted for less than 50 percent of the electorate. He has lost every state where evangelicals made up more than 50 percent of the electorate. Santorum has won five of those, and Newt Gingrich took two.

A similar rough boundary line exists for the electorates based on ideological leanings. Romney has won every state with exit polls in which “very conservative” voters have accounted for fewer than 35 percent of the vote. He has lost the states in which the percentage is greater than 35 percent.
