GOP Strategist Ron Paul Could Win Republican Nomination.

Mitt Romney has been declared the winner of Illinois Primary. This win has further strengthened his position in the race. Rick Santorum, on the other hand, achieved the second position in the recent polls and showed a hope to take the lead in the upcoming polls.

Romney, after winning Illinois Primary, addressed his supporters, who showed confidence in the Republican candidate. "Elections are about choices. And today, hundreds of thousands of people in Illinois have joined millions of people across the country to join our cause," Romney said in his message.

As the time for presidential election is approaching, the candidates are becoming more concerned about their positions. The polls that have been conducted have made the situation of the competition for the Republican nomination more clear. The competition has now shrunk to a few candidates as compared to the beginning of the polls.

Romney is focused on his agenda that he set for becoming the president of the country. While addressing his supporters, he said, "This election will be about principle. Our economic freedom will be on the ballot. I'm running for president because I have the experience and vision to get us out of this mess."

The candidates are still active in their campaigning to get greater support from voters in various states. They are focusing on the current economic situation, which has created problems for the people, and promising them change and betterment. Their popularity depends on how people perceive their agenda and their strength to make policies for the benefit of common man. They are, however, trying their best to gain the maximum support and voter confidence.

The fights among the candidates get intense as they see each other’s position in the polls. They criticize each other’s ideology and try to prove themselves as more suitable for the nomination. The voters make their decision on the basis of the past records of the candidate and the ideology if it matches with their own. If they agree with the agenda of one candidate, they do not change their decision and support for him despite criticism and objection from others.
