There is a 25% threshold to receive delegates in Louisiana, which is the highest in the country among all the 'proportional' states.

Which of the candidates will meet that threshold this Saturday?

Related question for discussion:  Does Newt Gingrich have any relevance in the race anymore if he fails to meet the threshold?

With the contests that are left, and becoming more and more a fringe candidate, I think he will only keep the diehards.
He is just hanging on hoping for some miracle, great speaking slot, or even to get his name out there as much as possible for the next election cycle.

No, but he is already irrelevant.

You can be our next waltermitty, although perhaps a slightly better-informed version, and without the fetish for really old women.

Santorum and Romney will. Gingrich has a shot at it, but I'd bet against it.

Yes, he is still on the ballot.  I highly doubt he will break 5%, however.  And Erc, Gingrich hasn't been relevant since he lost Alabama and Mississippi.

etch n skecth comment will give louisanna to santorum.

He already had LA.  I think Santorum still does, but it will be close to a 60-40 delegate split.

Romney's almost bound to hit 25%, if Gingrich and Paul are non-factors. Santorum's best shot for a sweep of the at-large delegates would be something like
Santorum 40
Romney 24
Gingrich 24
Paul 12
