Is it political strategy, donor pressure or perhaps hubris?

Or a combination of them all?

As a given for the GOP corporations love the welfare Haley has doled out to them.

Trump did the same on the national level but there is that prickliness and cult of personality that maybe spooks some corporate oligarchs.

Conversely that is what draws Trump's populist base who think he is fighting against "woke" elites and corporations.

What I saw today was South Carolina’s frustration with our country’s direction. I’ve seen that same frustration nationwide.

I share it. I feel it to my core. I couldn’t be more worried for America. It seems like our country is coming apart.

But here’s the thing. America will come apart if we make the wrong choices.

I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden. Nearly every day, Trump drives people away, including with his comments just yesterday.

— Nikki Haley, 24 February 2024

-1 ( +7 / -8 )

I would rather Biden face Trump than Haley.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

40% of sc republicans did not vote for trump. 1/3 of those who voted for him said he is unfit for office if (but more likely when) convicted in any of the 3 criminal trials he faces.

anyone else facing the same classified documents charges would be in pre-trial confinement. jack smith is skillfully maneuvering to have the judge removed from the case. she will be removed by the 11th circuit court.

the supreme court will not take the case on blanket immunity. that dc case will be returned to the trial judge.

haley is in a better position than people think. sooner or later, his base of poor, uneducated cult like followers will be no match for the people on the mass of people in the middle of the curve. she should just stay in it. trump will self destruct in court and in public.

what’s the old saying about fooling some of the people, but not all of the people?

Polls in the swing states are not looking good for Biden. Harris does even worse which is why they are sticking with him. Still 7 months to go but Biden isn't getting any younger making this a done deal. Trump will win bigly.

Polls in the swing states are not looking good for Biden. Harris does even worse which is why they are sticking with him. Still 7 months to go but Biden isn't getting any younger making this a done deal. Trump will win bigly.

We haven't gotten to the televised trials or 24 hour attack ad phase yet. And Trump will be massively outgunned in attack ads.

Well, they’re not GOP corporations, they’re just corporations that back Haley over Trump or Biden, overall they all seem to view Haley as a Washington insider which she is and is part of the perpetual swamp that continues to destroy the country and that is why people don’t like her in her own home state and if you can’t win even there, you are by definition a failure.

Trump did the same on the national level but there is that prickliness and cult of personality that maybe spooks some corporate oligarchs.

 For decades, our government pursued disastrous trade deals at the behest of K Street lobbyists, benefiting foreign nations plus the top executives of American multinationals, regardless of the harm to American workers. Donald Trump won the presidency vowing to fix these untenable trade structures, and in 2020 he signed the USMCA pact with our neighbors Mexico and Canada, a material improvement over the outdated and unfair NAFTA championed by bipartisan globalists. This success led to the Phase Two agreement with China as well, continuing the process of holding Beijing to account for its massive abuses of America via product dumping, industrial espionage, and a dearth of trade reciprocity.

Trump daughter-in-law is on track to becoming co-chair of the Republican National Committee.

The Republican Party has long been, and continues to be a political party serving the needs of the wealthiest, while ignoring the needs of those not of the upper caste. The Previous guy is maintaining those Republican tactics, and attracting herds of the poorly informed by saying the US is a terrible country filled with people he claims are their enemies. He's using tactics similar to those used in Germany in the 1930's.

Now the Republicans are just a cult led by a convicted sex offender, who's being charged with mishandling top secret documents. The previous guy's global approach is more closely aligned with those of the globe's dictators than those of US citizens, other than his fellow wealthiest.The cult of the previous guy want to blindly follow him in his ongoing efforts to further divide and weaken the country, which pleases the anti-democracy, anti-west/US dictators. The previous guy is a Loser, everything he touches, business or politics, has resulted in a loss for him, while he drags large numbers of US citizens down with him, getting them to pay his mounting bills. Polls don't count at this point. Once again I expects the PR idiots from the globe's totalitarian states, and America's most radical fringes to continue to keep their firehose of falsehoods flooding media. Ex-45 is mentally and emotionally unfit for any position of responsibility, no wonder the anti-Americans like him so much, some US citizens among them must know and applaud his attempts to destroy the country. He has no policies, nothing to say beyond the US is a terrible country, and its systems are terrible. And they send him their money for his saying so, while complaining about the cost of living.

Haley is holding on, because when the bottom falls out from Trump after he's convicted, she's going to be the one still standing, and the only one to go to by default.

The scary thing is, in a Biden/Haley lineup, she actually could win, whereas Trump has zero chance whatsoever.

6 ( +13 / -7 )

It will be interesting to find out if Haley will run as an independent, should Trump take the GOP leadership. That would tank Trump, as all the Never Trumpers would vote for her.

I lot of people say things because of peer pressure and or don’t want to be ridiculed, fired, bullied doxxed or ostracized from their jobs, friends, family for saying they will vote for Trump, when that curtain is drawn, people often vote differently than what they say publicly, we have seen this over and over again with Trump.

anyone else facing the same classified documents charges would be in pre-trial confinement.

Biden

jack smith is skillfully maneuvering to have the judge removed from the case. she will be removed by the 11th circuit court.

Oh, yeah?

the supreme court will not take the case on blanket immunity. that dc case will be returned to the trial judge.

Hmmm….

haley is in a better position than people think.

Well, looking at her numbers and the fact she couldn’t even win her home state tells a very different story.

sooner or later, his base of poor, uneducated cult like followers will be no match for the people on the mass of people in the middle of the curve. she should just stay in it.

74 million is a lot of people, we are all poor and uneducated?? But people that don’t support him are rich and smart? You mean like the people in blue states, all the rich, powerful, rainbow elite that have everything that call for diversity and open borders, but on the other side of their mouths they utter, but not in my backyard? The same rich educated Trump haters that demand an end to policing but are outraged by the growing crime?

So for all the smart Trump haters claim to be, they are the ones that are now all of a sudden complaining and want this current administration to do something about the growing crisis and divide.

trump will self destruct in court and in public.

Been hearing that for almost 2 years now, yawn….

what’s the old saying about fooling some of the people, but not all of the 

And to that point, this is exactly why he’s leading.

The election of a president under indictment and facing criminal trial would “create an unprecedented constitutional crisis” and “cripple the operations of government”, Donald Trump said.

“She is likely to be under investigation for many years,” Trump said, “and also it will probably end up – in my opinion – in a criminal trial. I mean, you take a look. Who knows? But it certainly looks that way.”

He returned to the subject two days later, CNN reported, telling a crowd in Reno, Nevada: “We could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and ultimately a criminal trial. It would grind government to a halt.”

I would rather Biden face Trump than Haley.

Democrats have actually been campaigning against Haley because they see her as a stronger threat against Biden. Haley has had to run against not only Donald Trump and his Republican establishment but also the Democrats.

— Quote from “Democrats warn voters against backing Nikki Haley in South Carolina,” New York Times, 1 February 2024

In recent weeks, Democratic party leaders have made Haley a particular focus of their events across the state [South Carolina], calling her the ‘mother of the MAGA movement.’

A spokesperson for Haley, Olivia Perez-Cubas, said, ‘Nothing would make the Dems happier than Donald Trump being the Republican nominee.’

Pointing to national polls that suggest Haley could beat Biden in a general election by a larger margin than Trump, Perez-Cubas said of the former president that ‘they know Biden can beat him.’”

So if Trump is elected, Democrats must take ownership of their role in assisting him.

I'm not saying to assist him in any way. I don't think there is a need to. Americans will elect the President we deserve in November.

I would much rather Biden face Trump because I believe Biden can more easily defeat Trump as he has done. I believe Biden can also defeat Haley, but I think that it would be closer. I would rather Haley be POTUS than Trump, but I am not losing too much sleep over either of these two lately. Biden and his team know what tf they are doing, both in governance and in campaigning. Experience counts for a lot on the job.

@bss:  Haley as a Washington insider which she is and is part of the perpetual swamp

Proof that Haley was part of the DC Swamp, was shown by the previous guy appointing her along with other highly toxic swamp creatures to the fetid swamp he enlarged during his brief time in DC. And now he calls Nikki bird brain, I thought he claimed he hired only the best, his family members who got richer off the taxpayers have shown they're not the best, either. Keep him in Mordor Lardo with an ankle monitor, in the state of Florida, which he claims is a terrible place, but then he, like his followers, says that about the US as well. Maybe after the document trials he can be shifted a few miles south to Guantanamo Bay.

The worst thing about the ex guy on TV is watching him wave his hands (at least they look like hands, only smaller) while repeatdly cat-pawing to the approximate beat of the music.

Walmart,

Great example.

Walmart pays poverty non-living wages on zero-hour precarious contracts and is subsidized by the entitlements of the federal government of the USA .

Yet MAGA rails about "entitlements".

bass4funk - your election opinions and rationalization have proved to be wrong, going all the way back to 2020.

supreme court will announce monday or tuesday. it would have affirmed the stay by paperless order. it takes 5 justices to decide to review. someone or two are writing a dissent and there would be no dissenting opinions written if they voted to stay, because they're meaningless. most likely alito and thomas are dissenting, but they're meaningless too. they're not taking the case.

and cannon will be replaced. every decision she's made has been paperless to try to avoid being slammed by the 11th sc again. every step in her slow walking has come to a head.

what I know is SC was Biden 120k votes, Trump 450k+ votes. A historical record for either party.

in Biden’s “best place” so what happened?

Yes, Biden could use his executive powers to shut anything down.

no he couldn’t. Your congress wouldn’t fund it because 45 would say that helps Biden.

Biden: 14th best president ever.

Well, amongst scholars who identify as republican Trump got as high as 41st! Not everyone rated him dead last, just enough to make him the worst ever on average

She is clearly a democrat stooge and not a very good one at that. Trump crushed her by some 20 points and the next one in Michigan, polls show he has a whopping 60 point lead.

She has been fired and Joe is next.

Are you sure Fox wasn't lying in that article?

No because it was broad ast first on NHK the video is on YouTube, X, Tik Tok.

Basically, you have to accept all their articles as lies,

Video doesn't lie.

Dirty little secret, Haley's got HUGE donor support from democratic fat cats like Soros. She's got to play this well, has no history of betrayal. 2028 not that far away, #2 not a bad showing, she'll need to step up Post Super Tue/March 5th and become LOYAL Trump Surrogate!

Koch brothers just pulled their support for Nikki in aftermath of South Carolina showing, where Nikki outspent Trump 15 to 1 and still lost by +20pts.

Trump did not even mention Nikki in his victory speech in South Carolina. Most serious analysts believe Trump will win majority of Republican delegates by March 12th.

Nikki's out of runway, has to play long game, respect will of the voters, prove her republican loyalty by stepping up as a Trump surrogate in second half of March.

Nikki's out of runway

Not really. She knows she just needs to stick around until Trump's first criminal conviction.

Hopefully Trump takes her out before that. She's an actual threat.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Democratic operatives and their donor class doing everything than can to get Nikki to go third party, in order to offset RFK Jr. Nutty Harvard Prof. and Jill Stein.

Nikki's only 52, she'd be insane to sellout to Soros and his crowd, throw away her integrity and political future for THEIR interests.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

She is pulling zero Trump voters.

This is a surprise? 45 voters vote for 45? Say it ain’t so!

The Trumpers seem pretty desperate to have her bow out. They're even starting to say she's a Biden plant in their desperation.

Anyone have any idea why they'd be so desperate to have her bow out of the race?

Question both Nikki and Trump have, where's Biden?

Seems Biden's only in private donor meetings, no engagement with media or public, not campaigning, etc.

WEIRD. Nikki and Trump both engaged and energetic, will be Michigan shaking hands, NOT Biden. Both Nikki and Trump believe Biden will not be running in Nov.

Seems Biden's only in private donor meetings, no engagement with media or public, not campaigning, etc.

Between abortion, the border, and Don's Descent into Dementia, overwhelming legal bills, and oncoming criminal trials, basically Biden just has to stay out of the way. It's his to lose.

And that's ignoring that he's the incumbent, and the incumbents always win. Well, unless they're Republican, which we've seen so many times over the past few decades.

You’re not doing your job, Hope.

unless maybe, just maybe your Prez doesn’t actually want the guy he already knows…

Nikki also understands current oddsmakers favor Trump 3:1 versus Biden. Even Gavin Newsome and Michelle Obama have 15 and 10 to 1 odd of winning Presidency.

Yes! Obama/Newsom would be great.

But in all reality Biden is doing an excellent job, and seeing as he already beat Trump once, before the insurrection, and before the criminal trials, and before Dobbs, and before Republicans blocked border legislation, and before Trump started sinking into dementia, Biden has nothing to worry about.

Nikki will do well sharping future of Republican party, but that will mean not burning bridges with the MAGA wing, rather building bridges! She's smart and she'll do it!

But really?

Yes. Masako Ganaha's comments have nothing to do with any US media outlet.

Biden just has to stay out of the way. It's his to lose.

Careful of what you wish for.

And that's ignoring that he's the incumbent, and the incumbents always win.

Probably not this time, when you lose Nate Silver, David Ayxlrod, James Carville, Paul Begala, and Ezra Klein, you are in serious, serious trouble.

Well, he's going to be out campaigning as well with a massive war chest, so beyond all those other things, he's riding pretty.

Probably not this time

A Democrat incumbent hasn't lost in 100 years.

Given Nikki's diversity and track record of success, she'll be a vital contributor to the success of the Republican party, that's so busy now picking up more diverse support, especially blacks and Hispanics, Trump's polling sizable double-digit gains from 2020 and with women too!

You clearly do not believe the polling or betting markets that politicians like Nikki and Trump look at every day. Most important issues in election relate to immigration, border security, inflation, high prices, global stability. Not exactly Biden strong suites.

Is that what Fox told you?

NHK

Well, he's going to be out campaigning

Even you don't believe that. lol

as well with a massive war chest,

It didn't help Hillary or Haley.

A Democrat incumbent hasn't lost in 100 years.

Kamala? ROFLMBO!
