Does anyone else think Nikki Haley is ultimately going to beat Donald Trump for the GOP nomination?

You can see the outlines of this story starting to emerge right now.

Lots of influential people are coalescing around her, including (1) most of the business establishment and (2) virtually all of the "anything but MAGA" wing of the GOP. The desire to block both Trump and DeSantis, who are two sides of the same soul-destroying coin, from the presidency.

Meanwhile, she is either already in second place (New Hampshire) or moving into second place (Iowa) in the early primary states. She doesn't have to win these states in order to shift the entire narrative.

If she comes in second place in both of the early voting states, she instantly becomes a viable alternative to Trump. Once that happens, I think support for Trump will begin to hemorrhage very, very quickly ... which will cause his support within the GOP political establishment to wither. And so on and so forth.

I would be very happy if I was Nikki Haley right now.

And while I would hate to lose the presidency, I can certainly live with a President Nikki Haley if it means denying Donald Trump another term in office.

There's no way Trump won't get the nomination. If he didn't, he would run third party, and destroy Republican's chances at the White House.

Unless Dump dies before the election (and we can all hope) - he will be the GOP nomination. The MAGA cult and the others who support Dump demand this. No. Matter. What.

If he dies then maybe but it's difficult to see Republican nominating a female.

The conventional wisdom has shifted somewhat. The secret primary, as it is called, has shifted even more.

Still, it depends on some bigger shoe dropping early in the new year…sooner than later…otherwise it won’t matter. Republican primaries are winner take all, and the state party organizers are in for Trump all over the map.

Should he slip in Iowa or NH, and she gets him one-on-one…there’s a bet to be made. She is going for broke; just ask Vivek—she flayed him with just a couple of retorts.

I don't know. I think this is Clinton vs. Obama in 2006-07 all over again. Hillary was thought to have it in the tank. All of the "vested interests" were lined up behind her and no one thought they could be dislodged. As soon as Obama showed he was viable by winning Iowa, it put EVERYTHING in play.

Obviously these are very different candidates but the psychology at work amongst the GOP electorate is likely not that much different than it was for Democrats during that primary race.

I think she's a complete opportunist with no real guiding principles. But, that being said, I think she's a pragmatist. I think she has already hinted that there would be no more pushes for stronger abortion laws in a Haley administration. would probably desert all the culture war issues, and I think she would love to take credit (as would any Republicans) for the improvements to the economy from Joe Biden's infrastructure bill that they all voted against. If we HAD to have a Republican president, she's marginally better than most of the other options- which is as tepid an endorsement as I'd be willing to make.

If she were to get the nomination, she would win the presidency. Now that Trump is beating Biden in the polls, it has reinvigorated the GOP to support him. However, even they have fatigue and have a backup choice. Haley is it. DeSantis has crashed and burned.

I honestly don’t see Biden getting a second term at this point. I hope I’m wrong but I’m getting the same feeling I got in 2016. If we have to have a Republican, Haley is the only one who isn’t totally crazy and not a con artist like Trump and Vivek. She speaks out of both sides of her mouth. She has to in order to win over the GOP. At the end of the day you can tell where she stands and what her priorities are. They’re not MAGA. She’s still a Republican but the best choice out of the lot of them. The first female president was always going to be a Republican.

I really wish Biden had kept his word and only ran for one term. The sad thing is I don’t see a viable alternative to him even if he did drop out. At least not one who could win.

If this country re-elects Trump its lost its mind.

Nikki Haley will win!

by Anonymousreply 17November 25, 2023 4:42 AM

Her nomination could scramble American politics of the last 8 years, if not the last 40 or 40. She is a 100% traditional politician coming from a party that has celebrated ideology.

In the Republican side, she might pull back Never Trumpers. But this would come at the price of losing evangelicals and MAGA as well as misogynists or racists. So it’s hard to see an active winning coalition.

From Democrats, she might pull away moderates if she can make the rest of her party tone it down. Biden is already losing support of young voters, POC, and leftists.

But for her to succeed requires a transformational candidacy, which her pragmatism and ideological flexibility make difficult. She is not going to energize anyone to a significant extent,

I still can’t see the Republicans putting away the Trump addiction. It’s unfortunate that there is not a good Biden alternative or that he’s not such a target for his age. Cory Booker without the closetty vibe, Mayor Pete without the wimpiness and racial problems, Amy Klobuchar without the whiny tone. Maybe Gretchen Whitmer.

by Anonymousreply 19November 25, 2023 4:54 AM

Gretchen would be a strong candidate. So would Gavin Newsom. The problem is name recognition. 70% of the US electorate pay no attention to politics until they start seeing ads on TV, and then they go for the one whose name they recognize - or else they throw a dart at the ballot. My community keeps electing one of the very worst Republican members of the House of Representatives (minus the Freedom Caucus members, but she's right up there with them). She does NOTHING for our district, but people recognize her name and of course she has an enormous war chest, so she floods the airwaves with ads for 6 months every election year.

by Anonymousreply 20November 25, 2023 4:55 AM

Absolutely not this time around, OP. However, I do think she will get the nomination in 2028 and be elected president. It'll be a change election, so she'll basically waltz into the White House without much effort. Newsom won't translate well in the Midwest, sealing his fate.

No. She's had a very easy ride so far because there are a lot in the media who like her and could see themselves voting for her and Trump hasn't viewed her as a threat. But she will soon face much more scrutiny. Also whereas Trump has highly enthusiastic supporters her support will have to come from the 40% who don't support Trump and have so far not rushed to support her. Enthusiasm is crucial to win a primary and I don't see it being there for her regardless of the media push for her.

NO ONE can make the MAGAts tone it down. Before them it was the Tea Party, it metastasized and led to the fracture of the traditional Republican party. Now losers like Gaetz, MTG and Boebert have their own constituencies, have cut their own deals for dark money and must be placated by the party. They are the power brokers in the Republican party. That's why all sane Republicans have been jumping ship for the last 10 years.

Absolutely no way. Haley can't even poll better than DeSatan and DeSatan is only at 13%. Trump has a MASSIVE lead, well outside of the margin of error. The only way Trump doesn't get the nomination is if he dies or drops out.

And then imagine if he does die or drop out: who are his voters more likely to vote for? I think DeSatan - Haley is too 'moderate' for them as well as a woman and an ethnic minority.

by Anonymousreply 39November 25, 2023 11:06 AM

I don’t know about Haley, but I don’t think Trump has a chance in hell of winning and I think it’s unlikely he will even get the nomination. In 2020 he had a good showing because many of the people who originally voted for him were unwilling to admit they had cut him too much slack and lots of people were pissed at the reactions against him and his supporters (especially the stuff about how people were dying of COVID because of him). Now he’s lost momentum and his childishness and his part in the divisiveness that has worsened has sunk in. Someone “safe” will probably win, so maybe Haley has a good shot but a democrat could, too. Biden could win, but his age is a big problem. And that also makes Trump’s age a bigger handicap for him. Trump’s Jewish connection could help him but it won’t be nearly enough. The voters who would vote against him based on that would never have voted for him anyway but some others will hold their nose and vote for him over a candidate who wasn’t strongly pro-Israel. But no way would that be enough.

People are exhausted and don’t want a new or unique candidate, not even one that would have been appealing four or eight years ago. So Biden has a chance. And people are tired of Hunter and Burisma as negatives. Those won’t hurt him that much.

A moderate, male democrat with a military background and a very strong immigration reform platform and a willingness to admit we need the functional equivalent of a wall would win. 100%, hands down. But not Pete because he blew it with the paternity leave (maybe a straight guy whose wife actually gave birth to twins and had a rough pregnancy could have gotten away with it, but he didn’t so you could argue that it’s homophobia) and allowing the perception of not doing enough to take hold and because he would be too Johnny come lately to a strong immigration stance. but I don’t think the Democratic Party will nominate someone with that stance. Not DeSantis because he’s gotten too much negative press already and he wore those white boots.

Ramaswamy has zero chance of being president because people are tired of negativity and being anti woke is ridiculous. Not valuing woke is fine, a positive. Actively against it is not what people want.

An independent dark horse is extremely unlikely. People are too burnt out and don’t want more conflict. But not completely impossible. The individual would have to be so above reproach that their existence is almost impossible.

I told you bitches a long time ago, and posted the same here, that I detected Haley's hellacious ambition to be the POTUS even before Trump appointed her UN Ambassador.

Hell, an astronaut then, and now, in orbit detects that, not that there is anything wrong with ambition.

I think she was lukewarm about the UN position. After Haley left it, I realized she took it to serve her goal- being UN Ambassador gave her access to Trump that allowed her to up-close, take his measure, so she had it in her arsenal when she needed it.

Yeah, I get it. The OP's question is about whether she can beat Trump for the nomination.

I agree that his supporters will go over Niagara Falls in their monkey barrel for him and that's all there is to it.

But, I've never underestimated Haley.

She's Eve Harrington to Trump's low-rent, wannabe, never-to-be-equal-to Margo Channing.

It’s the race for second place to see who will come closest and still loses to trump.

The primary election starts very soon. Then it will be the gop voters, a lot who are hardcore MAGA who will decide , not the big donors and policy folks in the gop would support someone other than trump.

Now if the debates between biden and trump begin and Donald loses control and takes a shit on stage. Or starts to speak in tongues.. Yes then he will lose support and the election.

The same holds if it’s biden on the dirty end of this story. And at 80 nothing is impossible.

The gop only hope to stop trump other than trump shitting on stage it’s a Haley-Desantis ticket now before the primary voting starts.

by Anonymousreply 43November 25, 2023 12:21 PM

Agree with previous posters - Haley nomination = Haley win. She will pull the never Trumpers and independents who fled from MAGA and ultimately Republicans will vote for the Republican in the presidential race when it comes down to it.

I felt we didn't have a Biden alternative and read and heard a bit recently about the deep Democratic bench. Looking at what's happened on the Republican side with the debates we've seen Haley pull through after the last few months. What would have happened on the Democratic side? Who knows who would have separated from the pack like Biden did in March 2020 and Obama in 2008?

Like those two I feel like it is happening now behind Haley. With Trumps legal woes and his declining mental state becoming much more obvious and talked about, I feel like it really is slipping for him.

I feel resigned knowing this Haley situation may come to pass but I can live with it. It would be a continued trend of a president that respects the rule of law and would be the nail in Trumps coffin. I worry about the Supreme Court but well that ship has sailed anyway. Can't Thomas drop dead? Anyway....

If we look at the alternative of stepping to the edge of no return with a Biden vs. Trump match again, I would gladly forgo that stress knowing the future of democracy would survive for now if Haley was the Republican nominee. I don't like it but I can live with it.

Hold me David.

Trump’s chance at the nomination isn’t that strong. I think people are underestimating the damage Trump did to himself AFTER the 2020 election and he lost that election. He definitely won’t win in 2024 and people know that and therefore he won’t get the nomination. One way or another he’ll be stopped. I think even Trump has the ability to recognize this and will simply run out the clock showboating until he feels the time is right to concede / not concede call it something else and talk about how he was the best president ever the this next president will just have to do.

Watch for an increasing number of attacks on Haley. She will be one marked woman now and until she is no longer seen as a threat to trump.

It would take a lot to convince him he would lose, but it could happen. That would be a big stick and a carrot would help, too. He’s unlikely to be swayed by JUST a carrot because he knows once he drops out he is largely over. But a consortium of billionaires stepping in and offering to fund a $100 billion presidential library on the moon with holograms of him and a spaceship shuttle or a Presidential Medal of Freedom with an induction ceremony at the White House where Biden has to hold his coat would help.

They don't much care who the other guy is or what he stands for, they're just registering their dissatisfaction.

I'm sorry, but Biden does need to drop out. I think he has been a good president but when you put him next to Trump in a debate, I don't think the contrast is going to look great, especially amongst an electorate that is actively looking to confirm their own age-related biases against him.

And he may not be "on tape" promising that he would only serve one term, but there was credible chatter in the run up to 2020 that he would term limit himself. Frankly, it was inconceivable four years ago that he would run for a second term at age 82. He was already too old in 2020.

I don't agree with that. This is exactly what people thought about Barack Obama. Black voters were VERY hesitant to line up behind him, they stuck with Hillary Clinton right up until Obama won in Iowa. Once we demonstrated that he was viable, people who had been completely loyal to Hillary Clinton started tearing away and moving towards Obama. I think a similar dynamic is at work here.

Trump has captivated the GOP but a lot of this is Stockholm Syndrome. Once someone shows they are viable then there is going to be a dogfight. I am not saying Trump is going to LOSE all of his support. But he really only needs to lose 30% or 40% for another candidate to become viable. I think Nikki Haley is that candidate.

A recent CNN poll found Trump’s support in South Carolina is at 53%, with 82% of his supporters saying they have made up their mind.

PRINCETON, NJ -- Despite extensive news coverage of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's improved position in Iowa and New Hampshire recently, there has been little change in the positioning of the Democratic presidential candidates on a national level, according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton continues to have a substantial lead over the group of Democrats vying to win the party's nomination for president in 2008. Obama remains a solid second, as he has been all year, with former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards continuing to hold down third place. Clinton's support improved modestly from a dip earlier this month and is nearly back to her high levels from the late summer and early fall. Obama's support has shown a gradual improvement in the past month, and has returned to its late summer/early fall levels.

The Dec. 14-16, 2007, poll shows that Clinton continues to have a large lead over her competitors, with 45% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents saying they support her for the nomination. Twenty-seven percent of Democrats support Obama and 15% support Edwards. Sen. Joe Biden (3%), Gov. Bill Richardson (2%), and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (2%) are well behind in what has pretty much been a three-person race the entire campaign.

If Kam had any political skills, she wouldn't have dropped out before the first primary with virtually no support anywhere. As for Newsome, the CA woke thing will cripple him in PA, MI and WI.

If nutty QAnon bitch Laura Loomer is spreading around the story of Nimrata's affairs, you know that side is worried about her being a threat to Trump.

I say good, let them tear each other down. Joe Biden and the Democrats will continue to work for the American people.

R177

She is just the next one up that trump and his people will go after. It’s not that at this point she poses any more of a threat than desantis did it’s just that she replaced desantis.

She is not special she was just next

Newsom doesn't poll well against Trump so I doubt he would be much better than Biden. Although admittedly that may be because voters don't know him as well.

There’s a “black swan event” that takes Trump off the list in January.

[quote] Whitmer ,Philips, Buttigieg, and Newsom are really are only hope

Whitmer has put up with quite a bit of death threats over the past few years. I don't think she'll ever run for president. She'll finish out her second term as Michigan governor and maybe she'll eventually end up as cabinet secretary similar to Jennifer Granholm.

Nikki Haley is now polling at 29% in New Hampshire. Trump at 44%.

So in maybe the most liberal gop state trump has a commanding 15 % lead over Haley which is a lot closer than the 30% lead he has in her home state of S.C.
