Nikki Haley may have suspended her campaign in March but by the time Pennsylvania’s Republican Primary ended Tuesday, she received nearly 160,000 votes. And this is even worse news than you might think for Donald Trump because Pennsylvania’s Republican primary is a bit different than say, the New Hampshire primary, where Haley also over-performed. Indeed, Pennsylvania holds a closed primary, where only registered Republicans can vote for Republican candidates. So in other words, nearly 17 percent of Pennsylvania Republicans cast a protest vote against Trump, the presumptive nominee, MeidasTouchNetwork reports.

That’s really pretty amazing, and while I know the former president has other fish to fry, it also should serve as a warning to him that perhaps he’s not as popular among Republicans as he might think.

The situation is looking rosy for President Joe Biden, who received a sizeable 93 percent of votes from Democrats. Dean Phillips, his nearest competitor received seven percent and he has gone on to endorse Biden for President. Haley quite obviously likes to stick to her guns and she has not endorsed Trump. While there may be a few cracks in the Democratic coalition right now, they have as a whole, gathered together behind Biden to back him for re-election. Republicans are understandingly very hesitant to get behind the disgraced former President.

Now doesn’t that just beat all?

The Pennsylvania primary results are a heavy dose of bad news for the Trump campaign, and a recent Quinnipiac poll doesn’t provide any better news either. That poll shows nearly half of those who support Robert F. Kennedy Jr. would back Trump if Kennedy wasn’t running, meaning that the independent anti-vaxxer/conspiracy theorist’s campaign actually attracts more votes from Trump than it does from Biden.

NBC News also did its own poll and it showed that Republican voters have a much more favorable opinion (40 percent positive, 15 percent negative) than Democratic voters do (16 percent positive, 53 percent negative).

I’m no fan of Nikki Haley. She is anti-abortion and is also against same-sex marriage and other issues of importance to the LGBTQ+ community. So she’s a definite no-go for me.

That said, she really did something kind of amazing in Pennsylvania. Plus, this is obviously bad news for Trump and I LOVE that.

  1. It’d be nice if haley kept this bit of spine she has developed and not endorse trump at all. I expect this bit of spine will collapse on itself by the time the ‘pubes go to their little hootenanny/convention.

    • She’s walking a tightrope for sure. She wants to be viable in 2028 so at some point she’ll make a half-hearted “I support the Republican nominee over Joe Biden” announcement. Under pressure she will be forced to choke out Trump’s name but will use it as little as possible. During the campaign she will keep as low a profile as possible. That’s my prediction.

      • An upon DON THE CON being re-elected, he will pronounce Saturdays as “public hanging of traitors & enemies of the King” day & Ninny Haley will end up as one of the first public displays of DON THE CON’S displeasure.

  2. The thought occurs to me that DON THE CON might need to make Ninny Haley his VP running mate, just to get some of these disillusioned GOP voters to STOP VOTING AGAINST HIM.

    • There’s no way ex-President Trump will choose Nikki Haley as his running mate. She is perceived as far too competent (and therefore far too suitable as a 25th amendment replacement).

    • Well, actually, she’s always used “Nikki” as a name since childhood–it’s listed as her middle name in the Wiki article about her (“Haley was born Nimarata Nikki Randhawa at Bamberg County Hospital in Bamberg, South Carolina . . . .” and “Haley has been known by her middle name, Nikki, a Punjabi name meaning “little one”, since she was born.”). As for “Haley,” well that’s her husband’s surname and, as we all know, ALL “good” women take their husbands’ surnames upon marriage. The only women who don’t take their husbands’ surnames are those who’ve generally established themselves in a career field prior to marriage; they may use the husbands’ surname in private situations but they’re generally addressed by their professional name in all other situations.
