ONE BIG LOSS: COLUMBIA, S.C. — Nikki Haley isn't giving up.
Despite a dismal primary performance in her own home state of South Carolina, the former U.N. ambassador is making good on her promise to stay in the GOP presidential primary race and is placing her bets on next month's Super Tuesday contests when 15 states — or just over a third of all delegates — are up for grabs.
"America will come apart if we make the wrong choices. This has never been about me or my political future. We need to beat Joe Biden in November. I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden," Haley told a crowd of supporters gathered at her election night watch party in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday.
"I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for President. I’m a woman of my word. I’m not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden," she said, arguing voters in Michigan and the Super Tuesday states deserved to have a choice as they head to the polls over the next 10 days.
GOP DELEGATE COUNT AFTER NEVADA:
DEMOCRAT DELEGATE COUNT AFTER SOUTH CAROLINA:
ONE KEY ENDORSEMENT: In a Fox News Digital exclusive, On Sunday afternoon, Senate Minority Whip John Thune, the No. 2 Senate Republican leader, endorsed former President Donald Trump for re-election. "The primary results in South Carolina make clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president in this year’s pivotal presidential election. The choice before the American people is crystal clear: It’s Donald Trump or Joe Biden," Thune told Fox News Digital.
It wasn’t clear before now whether Thune, who’s seen as one of McConnell’s potential successors to lead the Senate Republican Conference, would endorse either of the two major candidates for the 2024 GOP nomination.
ONE NEW POLL: There has been a major shift in one demographic in NY according to a new Siena College poll. Jewish voters who have long supported Democrats in presidential elections are coming out for former President Donald Trump at a rate of 53%. The poll shows only 44% of NY Jews plan to vote for President Biden.
Instances of antisemitism and pro-Palestinian protests have been nearly constant in NY following the October 7th terrorist attacks by Hamas on Israel. President Biden has been increasingly critical of Israel's actions in Gaza following the attacks.
In 2020, Trump received just 30% of the Jewish vote nationwide. Regardless of the gains shown among Jewish voters, the poll still has Biden beating Trump in deep blue NY by a margin of 48%-36%.
Siena surveyed 65 Jews out of 806 total voters. The poll has a margin of error of 4.2%.
"He had a chance to be seen as a statesman and a patriot. Now his legacy is likely to be that of a man whose hubris prevented him from seizing the moment in an appropriate way, and at best, he can squeak by Trump – that’s at best."
