New Hampshire primary clash: Can Nikki Haley slow down Donald Trump’s push for the GOP presidential nomination

Published January 23, 2024

The Republican presidential nomination is on the line as Donald Trump and Nikki Haley go head-to-head in New Hampshire’s primary

Nikki Haley, telling supporters at a rally in Salem, New Hampshire, on the eve of the first primary in the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said that “we’ve got a lot on the line here.”

Former President Trump, a couple of hours later and some 60 miles north of Haley in Laconia, New Hampshire, emphasized to the crowd at his rally that “tomorrow is the day that each and every one of you is going to cast the most important vote of your entire life.”

After a convincing 30-point victory in Iowa’s low-turnout GOP presidential caucuses a week ago, Trump is aiming for an encore performance in the Granite State as he tries to bring the Republican nomination race to an early ending.

For Haley, a former two-term South Carolina governor who served as U.N. ambassador in the Trump administration, the New Hampshire primary may be her best and possibly last chance to slow down or derail the former president’s march towards renomination.

Haley was down by double digits in most of the final public opinion surveys to the former president, who is the commanding frontrunner for the GOP nomination as he makes his third straight White House run.

Pointing to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ suspension of his campaign on Sunday – which left Trump and Haley as the last major Republican candidates in the GOP race – Trump highlighted that “now we’re down to two people. And I think one person will be gone probably tomorrow…now is the time for the Republican Party to come together.”

Tremendous pressure is building for former Gov. Nikki Haley to drop out of the GOP presidential primary, according to polling and political experts.

After Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) exited the race Sunday, Haley’s path to the nomination did not appear to improve. In fact, DeSantis’ endorsement of former President Donald Trump further consolidated support behind the former president, placing pressure on Haley to also end her fledgling campaign.

In all states besides New Hampshire, Trump leads by no less than 30 points. Haley also trails Trump in the Granite State by about 15 points, highlighting Haley’s bleak path to the GOP nomination. “[I]f she can’t win there — or come close to it — it’ll be a tough sell to stay in the race till South Carolina, four weeks later,” Politico Playbook reported Monday.

Nate Cohn, the New York Times’ chief political analyst, wrote Monday the polling undoubtedly shows Haley’s inevitable resignation from the race, so Trump can turn his focus to defeating President Joe Biden. “So, without a monumental shift in the race, he will secure the nomination in short order,” he said.

If Nikki Haley really is a serious challenger to former President Donald Trump in the GOP primary race, then she needs to put up in New Hampshire — or one of her billionaire backers will, at least partially, shut her up.

The Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, who started backing Haley’s candidacy last month, said he’s prepared to throw “a nice sum of money” her campaign’s way but is waiting until after the New Hampshire primary before making the “major gift,” the U.K.’s Financial Times reported Wednesday.

“If she doesn’t get traction in New Hampshire, you don’t throw money down a rat hole,” Langone told the outlet, while also predicting that we’ll likely see a 2020 presidential rematch of Trump and President Joe Biden in November.

“Right now, if I had to bet, I think the two candidates will be Biden and Trump,” he said, adding that he “probably” would vote for Trump were that the case.

Langone, as the Financial Times noted, is one of the anti-Trump mega-donors who are apparently either coming around to the former president or at least looking to withhold money from his competitors, Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“Trump showed that from Election Day 2020 to Jan. 6, his whole focus, in my opinion, was himself — not what was good for the country,” the billionaire said of Trump’s election challenge and the 2021 Capitol incursion.

However, he said, “away from the histrionics, away from the drama, away from the lack of decorum … [Trump] did some pretty good things.”

“My problem is we’re going to need a very competent manager, as well as a president-statesman. … I am supporting Nikki Haley because I think she comes [as] close to what you could hope for as anybody out there,” Langone said.

The paper reported that on Wednesday, “private equity billionaire Stephen Schwarzman — a former large donor to Trump who told the FT in 2022 that he would not support another bid by the former president — told CNBC he was also watching for ‘surprises’ in the primary race before deciding whether to back Trump.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
