Trump Wins, Haley Drops Out?

In a decisive victory in the South Carolina GOP primary, former President Trump has outperformed Nikki Haley, as per the exit polls by Decision Desk HQ. This marks the third consecutive state where Trump has significantly led over Haley. The duo did not face off in Nevada due to separate primary and caucus events.

With Trump’s victory anticipated by many, owing to a lead of 64 percent to Haley’s 33 percent in South Carolina polls aggregated by Decision Desk HQ and The Hill, this outcome further solidifies his position. Haley, who once served as the Governor of South Carolina and remains Trump’s primary Republican competitor, faces increased scrutiny regarding her campaign’s future prospects.

Despite the challenges, Haley remains committed to her presidential aspirations, asserting her intention to continue her campaign beyond South Carolina’s primary. The Republican party’s focus is gradually shifting towards the general election, with many anticipating a potential rematch between Trump and President Biden.

The upcoming Super Tuesday on March 5 will be a critical juncture, with a wide array of states including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and American Samoa participating in the presidential primaries.

The Trump campaign has expressed confidence, projecting in a recent memo that the former president could secure the required number of GOP delegates to clinch the nomination by March 19.
