Trump Vs Haley: The battle heads to New Hampshire

With Ron DeSantis suspending his presidential bid, a new dynamic is emerging on the eve of the New Hampshire primaries. The campaigns are shifting to one-on-one combat as the two hopefuls head to the next phase of winning their party’s nomination.

“At one point in this campaign, there were 14 of us running,” Haley says in an email fundraising pitch, sent out shortly after the DeSantis news broke. “But today, it’s officially a two-person race between me and Donald Trump!”

Things could get ugly fast according to the former President’s advisers and allies. Team Trump is expected to unleash a level of vitriol against Haley, his former U.N. ambassador, that she hasn’t yet seen, they said. “Nikki should get out while people still talk about her for 2028, or she’ll end up like all the 2016s that nobody thinks of as future presidents anymore,” a Trump campaign adviser said. “A protracted ground war will cost us our money, but it will cost Nikki her reputation and image.”

Most public opinion surveys indicate that a clear majority of voters who support DeSantis view Trump as the next best option, suggesting that his withdrawal will end up being a boon to the former president. A CNN/University of New Hampshire poll found 62% of DeSantis supporters in the state named Trump as their second choice, while only 30% named Haley.
