Nikki Haley Out Of The Race But Still Getting Votes In Primaries

COLUMBIA, SC- Nikki Haley is set to reconnect with donors who backed her now-ended Republican presidential bid, marking her return to the public sphere amid ongoing support in select state primaries, despite Donald Trump’s dominance as the presumptive GOP nominee.

Scheduled for May 6 and 7 in Charleston, Haley will convene with approximately 100 donors in a gesture of gratitude, according to sources familiar with the arrangements, as initially reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Reportedly, Haley’s appearances won’t involve an endorsement of Trump or a plea for donor support for any other candidates, noted the Associated Press.

Haley’s ability to garner a noteworthy portion of the vote in certain primaries where her name still lingers on ballots underscores the fractures within the Republican Party as Trump advances toward a potential rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden, the Associated Press said.

Despite bowing out of the race after a series of defeats by Trump in the Super Tuesday contests in early March, Haley managed to secure over 21% of the votes in Indiana’s primary. Subsequently, in Pennsylvania, she clinched nearly 17% of the primary vote. Similar levels of support followed in Arizona shortly after her withdrawal.

Before her withdrawal, Haley commanded nearly 27% of the votes in Michigan and received 13% of the Georgia GOP vote following her exit.

Indiana’s open primary system allows any registered voter to participate in either party’s primary. While the Trump campaign has alleged, without substantiation, that Haley’s support stems from Democrats, President Biden’s campaign has attributed her success in Indiana to Trump’s challenges in suburban areas.

  • Trump was underestimated in 2016 and that was one of the reasons he won in 2016. He was judged just about right, therefore, he lost in 2020. He is being overestimated in 2024, therefore, he will most likely lose in 2024. He had hidden support in 2016, which helped him win. It was hidden because people were ashamed to admit openly that they would support a racist guy with no political experience. By 2020, the way he had mishandled foreign affairs (Iran nuclear deal, North Korea, NATO, etc.) and the Covid pandemic and caused a large number of people to get sick and die and produced a deep recession due to shutdown of businesses, people had a pretty good idea how dangerously incompetent he was; people already knew that was racist, rapist, and misogynistic. Therefore, people voted him out in 2020. Unfortunately, he managed to brainwash a large number of Republicans into believing that the 2020 election was stolen from him. That resulted in the January 6 insurrection, followed by a sympathetic support of Trump who convinced a large number of Republicans that all the criminal cases that he was indicted for were political witch-hunt against him, perpetuated by Biden. This helped him win the Republican nomination and boost his popularity ratings.
    The fact that Haley can get 20% of Republican votes in the Republican primaries when she is not even running is bad news for Trump. Polls also indicate that he will lose some Republican support should he get convicted in one of the criminal cases, even though the MAGA Republicans will continue to support him irrespective of what happens, but only about 15 percent of US voters are MAGA Republicans and that’s not enough to win election.
