At an event held in Charleston, South Carolina, Former S.C. Governor Nikki Haley announced her bid to run for President of the United States today.

She will be challenging former President Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and a likely crowded field in the 2024 Republican primary.

South Carolina will vote in advance of most other U.S. States in picking the 2024 Republican presidential nominee through the primary process.

Haley today described herself as a “tough as nails woman.” She says she is someone who can shake up Washington, D.C.

On Sunday, February 5th, a new poll showed nearly 60% of Democrats and nearly 50% of Republicans want someone other than Joe Biden or Donald Trump to be their party’s nominee for president in 2024.

The poll, conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News, showed that 62% would be “dissatisfied” or “angry” if Biden were re-elected in two years’ time, while 56% said the same about Trump winning re-election.


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis could also choose to run. A large contingent of strong conservatives are encouraging a DeSantis run.

Haley will need to separate herself from what will likely be a large field with Trump and DeSantis the larger brand names running.

Her call for a new generation of new leaders puts her heads up directly against DeSantis.

According to the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce:

Statewide, 64 percent of Florida voters approve of the job DeSantis is doing, versus just 24 percent who disapprove. Support for DeSantis is broad across nearly all political and demographic groups.

In the state of Florida, among Republicans, 85 percent approve of Governor DeSantis while 10 percent disapprove. Among independents, 60 percent approve and 23 percent disapprove. DeSantis is even performing well with Democrats, garnering 46 percent approval versus 39 percent who disapprove.

Hailey is currently polling at 3% for winning the national bid.


According to a new poll, from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, just 37% of Democrats say they want him to seek a second term, down from 52% in the weeks before last year’s midterm elections.
