The slight uptick that Nikki Haley experienced after last month’s GOP primary debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, appears to have leveled off again.
A new Monmouth University-Washington Post poll A poll conducted in Haley’s home state of South Carolina found that voters there strongly disagree with the idea of her becoming president.
The poll, conducted between Sept. 6 and Sept. 11, surveyed 506 potential Republican Party primary voters in the First-in-the-South state.
46% of them said they want Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee for president in 2024. Meanwhile, just 18% said they wanted the nomination to go to Haley.
When respondents were asked who their second-choice candidate would be, they fared even worse, falling to 16%, behind Ron “Don’t Say Gay” DeSantis, who was in the lead with 21%.
This is especially bad because Haley, who once complained on Facebook about gays ruining her lunch with her Pride celebration, was the state’s governor from 2011 to 2017 and before that was a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 2005 to 2011.
The fact that her own former voters prefer either a four-time accused sex offender or a man who literally laughs like a hyena doesn’t bode well for the 51-year-old, who said Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law did this She doesn’t go “far enough” when it comes to silencing LGBTQ+ people and their long-term presidential ambitions.
Nationally, Haley’s poll numbers weren’t great either. Accordingly Thirty-fivetheir average unfavorability rating has increased nearly four points in the last week alone and has been rising steadily since April.
Now there are probably several reasons for all of this. The most obvious, of course, is that people just don’t like them. Furthermore, she doesn’t seem to understand what exactly she is committed to for or who she campaigns for against.
Although she is currently running against Donald Trump in the Republican primary, she said she hopes to eventually face Joe Biden in the general election Fox News last week: “That’s really me running against Kamala Harris.”
The next Republican primary debate will take place on September 27 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.
Haley is expected to be there and will once again face Vivek Ramaswamy, Chris Christie, Mike Pence, “Don’t Say Gay” DeSantis and Tim Scott. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has said he will skip the debate.
