Nikki Haley pulls even with DeSantis in polls, but can her hot streak catch Trump?

Nikki Haley pulls even with DeSantis in polls, but can her hot streak catch Trump?

It’s no secret that the 2024 presidential race is unlike any other.

The man leading the Republican candidates is being threatened with jail time, and the man currently in office doesn’t know how to form a coherent sentence.

Stu Burguiere believes that if the Democrats succeed in putting Donald Trump in jail, he “might just win the election from jail.”

However, one candidate has been unexpectedly moving up in the polls.

That candidate is Nikki Haley, who has just pulled even with Ron DeSantis in the Iowa poll. The two are trailing behind Donald Trump at 16%.

“Everyone knows Donald Trump is going to be ahead in these polls. But the fact that Haley has pulled even with DeSantis is very good news for the Nikki Haley campaign,” Stu says.

Stu is not a Nikki Haley fan, but he’s also not a hater.

“She’s, you know, a Republican. Some of the views that she has, I don’t love some of them,” he says, adding, “I thought she was a pretty good governor of South Carolina when she was there. All that being said, I didn’t think her debate performances were all that strong.”

This poll is the first sign of serious momentum for the Haley campaign in Iowa, while she’s already been polling well in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

“She obviously was an ambassador to the U.N. She has a decent amount of expertise on the world stage. And central to her argument is a hawkish national defense,” Stu says.

Hawkish national defense is an argument that will grow in favor if there are any terrorist attacks, which Americans have been warned about since Hamas’ invasion of Israel.

In addition, the poll shows that 87% of Trump voters are either extremely enthusiastic or very enthusiastic. For Ron DeSantis it’s only 65%, and for Nikki Haley it’s 75%.

Stu believes that this might make Nikki Haley’s 16% “a little bit better.”
