Buddy Roemer and America's First Online Presidential Primary

The polls in Louisiana are now being looked forward by the candidate for Republican nomination, Rick Santorum. He is expecting good results from the upcoming polls and needs votes from the people of Louisiana to compete with Mitt Romney who won in the recent polls in Illinois. Santorum has campaigned in Louisiana very actively and expects a good response.

Romney also has not ignored the Louisiana polls and has communicated his ideas to the people to gain support from them. He has carried out campaigns in the region and motivated the people to get together for a change. He emphasized the need to bring in a new president to replace Obama. "I need your vote, and I want the vote of the people of Louisiana so we can consolidate our lead," Romney said in his address to the people.

Santorum has assured the public that he would never vote for President Obama to get him re-elected. He says that he would support the candidate who gets nominated from the Republicans and therefore stay with his own party. If he does not get the nomination from the Republicans himself, he is going be supporting his rivals then, who are currently having a tough competition with him. "Over my dead body would I vote for Barack Obama," Santorum said in his remarks.

Santorum was being criticized for his comments in which he called Romney to have similar policies as Obama. “There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference on some of the most important issues of the day. There is no contrast. There is no core. There is no trust among Republican voters as to what he believes in. Here in Louisiana, you can speak out loudly that we don’t want just something just a little better than Barack Obama,” he said.

He has clarified that he would not deviate from his party’s ideology and is being targeted wrongly by his rivals. The win from Louisiana would reduce the difference in the position of the current lead i.e. Romney and Santorum. The competition will get more intensified after the polls and will become even more interesting.

The candidates for Republican nomination have focused their campaigns on the issues in the region that are the major concern for people these days. They have tried to gain maximum support from the public for their victory in getting nominated. Santorum however has the lead in Louisiana as being calculated by various surveys. The polls will make the situation even more clear.
