Time to Focus on the General Election

For all intents and purposes, the Republican presidential primary process is over. President Trump defeated former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in last Saturday’s primary election and effectively shut down any opposition in the GOP to his presidential candidacy.

In Saturday’s South Carolina primary, President Trump defeated Haley by over 20% in Haley’s home state of South Carolina. He also won all but three of South Carolina’s counties and took home 47 out of the 50 delegates from this GOP primary contest.

This staggering margin means that Nikki Haley has no real path forward in winning the GOP presidential nomination. President Trump currently holds 110 delegates compared to Haley’s 20 delegates and has won every single primary/caucus so far.

As of today, President Trump also leads Nikki Haley in the national Republican primary polls by roughly 60%–according to 538.

So realistically, Nikki Haley will have no ability to gain a majority of the remaining GOP presidential delegates. President Trump will mathematically sew up the GOP presidential primary by mid-March–considering Trump is poised to dominate on Super Tuesday (March 5th) coming up.

After President Trump won the South Carolina primary, he gave an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital–where he expressed his thoughts on the state of the race:

When asked whether he wanted Nikki Haley to drop out of the race, Trump told Fox News Digital that he’s ‘really not thinking about that… I’m not thinking about itI’m really thinking about we have to beat Joe Biden,’ he told Fox News Digital. ‘I don’t know if she’s in the race at all, because, you know, I have set records in every single state. I’m not sure that she’s really in the race.'”

President Trump is correct here. The GOP presidential primary is no longer competitive, and it’s high time that Republicans focus on the November general election.

Even Haley’s biggest backers are starting to back away from her. After her South Carolina loss, the Koch network super PAC “American for Prosperity Action” (a RINO-Establishment group) announced its decision to cut off funding for Nikki Haley’s presidential campaign.

With eight months until November general election, the Republican party needs to unite around President Trump and his “America First” agenda. The Republican voters of South Carolina reminded everyone that the GOP is President Trump’s party and that a vast majority of Republican voters support his presidential campaign.

For everyone’s sake, Nikki Haley needs to stop wasting people’s time and money by dropping out of the GOP primary immediately. Republican voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina rejected Neo-con Nikki, and it’s time for her to accept reality.
