It’s Over, Nikki: Trump Dominates in Last Remaining “Rival’s” Home State

The only commentators and political analysts who doubted Donald Trump would dominate the South Carolina GOP primary were NeverTrumpers and insane people. Often these groups are one in the same. But as the dust settles, it’s clear that the Republican nomination for president is going to Trump following former governor Nikki Haley’s embarrassing performance in her home state.

The race was called by all major news outlets within moments after the polls closing.

According to Reuters:

Donald Trump easily defeated Nikki Haley in South Carolina’s Republican contest on Saturday, Edison Research projected, extending his winning streak as he marches toward a third consecutive presidential nomination and a rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden.

The former president had been widely favored to win, with poll after poll showing him holding a sizable lead despite his litany of criminal charges and Haley’s status as a native of South Carolina who won two terms as governor.

The lopsided outcome will bolster calls from Trump’s allies for Haley, Trump’s last remaining challenger, to drop out of the race. Trump has dominated all five contests thus far – in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, the U.S. Virgin Islands and now Haley’s home state – leaving her with virtually no path to the Republican nomination.

A defiant Haley, who served as U.N. ambassador under Trump, insisted this week that she would sustain her campaign through at least “Super Tuesday” on March 5, when Republicans in 15 states and one U.S. territory will cast ballots.

As I’ve noted before, the only reason Haley would continue at this point is if her UniParty Swamp handlers have insider information that leads them to believe one or more of Trump’s criminal cases will be rigged against him. Otherwise, every form of lawfare being waged against him has failed to keep him from returning to the White House even as they try to drain his bank accounts.

It’s time for Haley to either drop out or acknowledge she’s working against America’s best interests.
