Title: Nikki Haley Gains Momentum as New Hampshire Primary Approaches
In the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Nikki Haley has emerged as a strong contender in New Hampshire, as recent polls suggest she has a chance to defeat the front-runner, Donald Trump. With the primary just around the corner, Haley is relying on a broad coalition of moderate Republicans, independents, and even some Democrats to support her campaign.
One voter who plans to back Haley is Marie Mulroy, an independent, who opposes the idea of Trump returning to office. Mulroy is part of a growing number of voters who are disenchanted with the former president and are looking for an alternative. New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu predicts that this sentiment will drive independents to turn out in record numbers and work in Haley’s favor.
Kim Rice, a co-chair of Haley’s campaign, believes that Haley is gaining political momentum and is finding support among independents and some Democrats. In a surprising turn of events, nearly 4,000 Democratic voters have switched party affiliation to vote for Haley in the upcoming primary, reflecting the significant influence she has garnered.
To further bolster support for Haley, a super PAC called Primary Pivot is urging voters from the center and center-left to rally behind her candidacy as a strategy to halt Trump’s political ambitions. However, not everyone agrees with this approach. Kathy Sullivan, a former chair of the New Hampshire Democratic party, believes that only Joe Biden can effectively challenge Trump in the November election. In fact, Sullivan has taken the lead in launching a write-in campaign for Biden since his name will not appear on the New Hampshire primary ballot.
Haley has navigated the campaign trail carefully when discussing Trump, acknowledging his role as the former president while criticizing his behavior after the 2020 election. This balanced approach has resonated with many voters who appreciate her ability to address pertinent issues without resorting to personal attacks.
As history has shown, the New Hampshire primary often delivers surprising results. However, even if Haley manages to defeat Trump in this crucial battle, it may not be sufficient to completely eliminate him from the race. Nonetheless, her increasing popularity and the shifting political landscape in New Hampshire indicate that Haley is a force to be reckoned with as the primary unfolds.
