( – Following the exit of former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley from the 2024 presidential race, former President Donald Trump has to make a race on whether or not he is going to attempt to win over the supporters of Haley or dismiss them. 

Before Haley dropped out Trump had won almost all of the primary races he had participated in apart from two. This was a sign of his clear position as the frontrunner of the party. However, a recent poll in November found that Haley’s supporters in North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia were not too fond of the idea that they should support former President Trump. That has provided hope to Democrats who were worried about the possible weaknesses of President Joe Biden. 

Democrats are hopeful that Trump is going to have a hard time unifying the Republicans to support him which could make it harder for him to win the Electoral College. Haley has not endorsed Trump despite having now withdrawn from the presidential race. She further argued that Trump needed to “earn the votes” of those who had not previously supported him. 

Trump’s team has also not attempted to bridge the fap arguing that Haley’s support is in large part driven by Democrats. However, Trump has also called for supporters of Haley to support his 2024 presidential bid. 

Trump’s allies have downplayed the importance of having any direct outreach to Haley voters, however, both sides agree that with how close the general election is expected to be, the former President cannot afford to not have the support of moderate Republicans.
