DC knows. They're the one's who saw the MAGA insurrection happen on their turf.

6 ( +14 / -8 )

DC also remembers violent BLM protests! Nikki naturally does well with democratic stronghold DC relative to Trump.

Nikki did get crushed this weekend in Idaho, Missouri and Michigan. Super Tue will be very bad for her. Her appeal, crossover voters from democratic party voting anti Trump. They will not support her in the general.

-10 ( +8 / -18 )

CBS news poll today, 46% remember Trump's term as Good/Excellent. Biden current term, 33% Good/Excellent.

Voters like peace, prosperity and stability vs. opposite, Nikki has no Presidential track record, unlike Trump and Biden, so most deem her too risky/unknown for the job.

-12 ( +8 / -20 )

DC is 99% democrat and Haley only got 63%? Not an overwhelming victory.

-12 ( +7 / -19 )

Haley has tended to perform better among more moderate and independent-leaning voters.

and especially among Democrats.

-8 ( +7 / -15 )

Nikki thankfully ruled out 3rd party and No Labels, so she's keeping her 2028 options alive, while burning up plenty of democratic globalist donor cash in the process.

Nikki will pull the plug tomorrow/Tue, #2 in delegates, she'll put her campaign on 'pause', wait and see stuff, likely she steps up as real Trump Surrogate, seems the d's bought her head fake, she's two timed them!

-12 ( +6 / -18 )

Nikki must have been asking herself all this time...."why have all these heavy hitting democratic donors been giving me all this $cash, what their candidate Biden?"

Answer? Democratic desperation, as $playing in the other party's nomination process rarely goes well.

CBS news poll today, 46% remember Trump's term as Good/Excellent. Biden current term, 33% Good/Excellent.

Hard for elderly Biden to recover from such polling, people miss Trump's results more and more, Nikki gets it.

-10 ( +5 / -15 )

Those folks in DC - voting for "Nancy" even when she was responsible for security at the Capitol...

Anyway, any win for Haley is bad news for Dems as she is the only Repub that could even mount a challenge to Biden.

The current Repub frontrunner keeps saying he's running against "Obama", keeps slurring his words, and recently called his wife "Mercedes".

And his only policy position is that he'll rescind that "Deep State" law requiring you to show an ID to buy bread.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

and recently called his wife "Mercedes".

and here is what actually happened….lol

-9 ( +7 / -16 )

there should be forced retirement of all politicians and public officials over a certain age.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

I can understand why the election deniers have to keep living out the charade. It would be embarrassing for them to admit they were wrong all along and got played.

Everyone around them can see it; friends, family neighbors and coworkers. We all know that one person, but just smile awkwardly and try to avoid them in conversation.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Nikki sees the writing on wall for 2024, people want stability, especially secure borders, low inflation, low interest rates and no crazy risk of WW III over Ukraine territorial matters stemming from their 10year Civil War.

Makes sense, times are too dangerous for someone who needs 1600 learning curve. She'll be great Trump Election Surrogate, probably gets Cabinet Post, effective at reaching out to women and democrats etc.

Below polling means, Biden's not likely on Nov Ticket, cannot recover from chaos of High Prices, illegals, inflation, raging wars, High Interest Rates, Crime, etc.

The conservative's neurosis can't let go of their belief in the stolen election. Such a shame. They should seek help.

10 ( +13 / -3 )

Real problem for Biden, lack of engagement, people don't believe he's fit, even democrats if one believes polling. Nikki in normal year would have had real shot, but in crazy dangerous times Trump's track-record = key.

-10 ( +3 / -13 )

The conservative's neurosis can't let go of their belief in the stolen election.

And you can continue to say and think that, no worries.

Such a shame.

To you perhaps

They should seek help.

I think the left need help, no, there is no help for them.

-8 ( +4 / -12 )

Nikki has no Presidential track record,

@hopespring. Obama didn't have presidential record too. He was president for 2 terms.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Go Nikki go !

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Variety is the spice of life (Benjamin Franklin), makes for more interesting and healthy debate and discussion.

That's why we have elections! Nikki held up well, should be proud, has great future ahead at 52 in the Republican party, all respect her integrity, but still got lots to learn!

-10 ( +3 / -13 )

Her victory Sunday at least temporarily halts Donald Trump’s sweep of the GOP voting contests, although the former president is likely to pick up several hundred more delegates in this week’s Super Tuesday races.

Those Republicans, those purported blue collar working class in DC get it.

Haley will work for corporations but workers will get at least something.

https://aflcio.org/press/releases/sc-gov-nikki-haleys-real-economic-record-corporate-subsidies-over-public-good

Trump's business record, extensively documented, is off stiffing contractors and stealing the wages of those who have worked for him.

If you are supporting the GOP you take what you can get.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

American need not another MAGA campaign/riot, Nikki or Biden, both are far better than Trump

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Am I reading this right - she essentially cruised to victory in a dem stronghold.

-7 ( +3 / -10 )

Washington is one of the most heavily Democratic jurisdictions in the nation, with only about 23,000 registered Republicans in the city. Democrat Joe Biden won the district in the 2020 general election with 92% of the vote.

An essential piece of information is missing from the article: Is the DC presidential primary open (anyone may vote) or closed (in this case only registered Republicans may vote)?

Does it make a difference? Impossible to say, but I bet some Republicans loved the opportunity to vote for Bernie in 2016.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

A LOT of republicans do not like trump.

4 ( +6 / -2 )

It’ll be interesting to see how many of her supporters will vote for Trump this fall.

Will they or won’t they?

You’ve posted this same statistic three times.

Didn’t you write just this morning that “key swing states matter most, not national polls”?

This is a national poll, isn’t it?

All believe swing states will decide election, but national polls instructive, as they sample from swing states too!

Nikki knows Trump = nominee, above poll result did not happen due to 'news'; rather voters carefully comparing their "are you better off than 4 years ago?" calculation.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

Well, that’s your opinion, half of the country doesn’t think so.

Nikki knows Trump = nominee, above poll result did not happen due to 'news'; rather voters carefully comparing their "are you better off than 4 years ago?" calculation.

And this is how Americans think about the economy:

63% Americans say the economic situation is either good or really good

77% are happy with where they are living (including renters)

More than half think that if they lost their job tomorrow, they would be OK. Because their company needs them more than they need the company.

85% think that their financial situation will improve in 2024

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Anyone can cherry pick, manipulate or flat out lie about polling. Advise all interested in this election, no matter who they support to look at all polling.

Candidates like Nikki do every day. Below, great polling source updated daily, includes all polling. If things are great, incumbent politicians have nothing worry about!

Who in their right mind would view below as "things are great" in the US? It's just one snapshot, but an important one from a highly credible source released on Sunday.

How many of them did you ask?

Judging by the Polls and Trump winning, I really don’t need to.

-10 ( +1 / -11 )

I doubt that Nikki will endorse Trump when she loses.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Judging by the Polls and Trump winning, I really don’t need to.

Did you see the poll of US historians that put 45 in last place among all US Presidents? Even lower than the guy who died after only a month in office. The same poll of US historians in 2018 also put him at the bottom. Quite a feat.

I know I know, polls right?

Who cares, she won't be the nominee.

If she wants to throw her entire political career away, so be it.

Who cares, she won't be the nominee.

Exactly

@HopeSE: globalist donor cash in the process.

Using a Nazi expression like glob.... is consistent with those supporting the extreme right, and their ilk. But not surprising that they support Putin, Xi and their regimes, two of the globe's most powerful individuals leading oppressive regimes not that different from the Nazi's of the last century.

I don't know, I think she might endorse Trump for Leavenworth Cell Block Trustee...

Who cares, she won't be the nominee.

Exactly

More MAGA-predictions - ask Dr Oz and Herschel Walker how those worked out...

Oh, they’re supposed to support the radical Marxist left???

But not surprising that they support Putin, Xi and their regimes

No, we don’t, no more than the left supports Iran and their proxies

two of the globe's most powerful individuals leading oppressive regimes not that different from the Nazi's of the last century.

Utter nonsense! No one is being murdered or sent to gas chambers

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Nikki has to endorse Trump if she cares about her future, which she does. Must prove herself as Trump campaign surrogate. MAGA movement not going away, she'll need for the decades ahead, as she's only 52 = long game!

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Did you see the poll of US historians that put 45 in last place among all US Presidents? Even lower than the guy who died after only a month in office. The same poll of US historians in 2018 also put him at the bottom.

Selection bias, approx. 92% of tenured academics are democrats. Same poll with small business, see results change 180 degrees, Nikki gets it, political silly season!

Nikki's strength, broad appeal, but not passionate support, like Biden, thus nobody's fighting for him now, he won't make ticket, d's will pull the plug this summer.

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Biden is losing, yuuuuugely. 

Losing what? Losing predictions. Ok.

Losing what? Losing predictions. Ok.

The Presidency

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Both are terrible choices but as I have said all along, sensible people will choose the lesser of two evils. There is absolutely no way 45 will be 47. Grover Cleveland had an extraordinary set of circumstances. 45 has whining.

Losing predictions. Ok.

losing the upcoming election.

even more so when Biden is still losing to such a supposed person. Lol why am I not 20 points ahead!

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

Your guy lost to such a supposed sleepy basketcase mental midget. That actually happened. You are dancing about things that haven’t happened yet. Quite a difference.

My prediction that 45 won’t be 47 is based on over 130 years of history, not a poll that you like from this week.
