Nikki Gets Bad News


( – The rest of the 2024 GOP nomination race doesn’t look good for Nikki Haley as a conservative pollster has now forecasted that the former governor of South Carolina will lose the Republican primary in her home state by dozens of points to former President Donald Trump.

The prediction has come from Tony Fabrizio, Donald Trump’s chief pollster, who has previously worked on Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns.

Fabrizio has conveyed to donors through a private message that the former president is poised to dominate Nikki Haley in her own territory of South Carolina, where she is most recognized.

Axios first disclosed this information, which obtained the poll results showing Trump significantly ahead of Haley, the former governor of the Palmetto State, National Review reports.

The survey by Tony Fabrizio indicates that Trump enjoys the support of nearly two-thirds (64%) of South Carolinians, in contrast to Haley’s 25% support, with Florida governor Ron DeSantis attracting only 8%.

In the meantime, DeSantis has quit the presidential race and endorsed Trump over Haley.

“In our just completed survey of South Carolina Republican primary voters, we found former President Donald Trump crushing Nikki Haley in her home state,” Fabrizio wrote in his confidential memorandum.

The pollster also noted that Trump would benefit more than Haley if DeSantis withdrew from the race.

“The head-to-head contest is no better for Haley. One on one, President Trump swamps her 68% to 28% with just 4% undecided. Again, Haley’s weakness is evident in that only 22% are definitely voting for her compared to a whopping 60% definitely voting for President Trump,” Fabrizio wrote.

Haley recently dismissed the idea of serving as Trump’s vice president, despite speculations that Trump might consider her for his ticket if her presidential aspirations do not materialize.

“I’ve said from the very beginning: I don’t play for second. I don’t want to be anybody’s vice president. That is off the table,” Haley stated at a restaurant in Amherst, New Hampshire, as reported by a Politico journalist.

Haley’s presidential campaign has been scrutinized lately regarding her potential role as vice president in a second Trump administration.

This speculation has caused hesitation among Chris Christie’s supporters, delaying their endorsement of Haley after Christie exited the race, as reported by National Review.

“I do not want to be vice president. Period,” Haley recently told a local ABC affiliate.
