Oklahoma primary: Rick Santorum seems set to win

Today we’re running through the final polls in the most important Super Tuesday states — Ohio, Oklahoma, Georgia and Tennessee.

There’s a serious dearth of polling in Oklahoma.

More conservative — socially and otherwise — than nearby Tennessee, Oklahoma has a high evangelical population and a fondness for outspoken, hardline politicians.

While Sen. Tom Coburn (R) gave his support to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, Santorum is the heavy favorite here.
