Trump is not going to be nominee, it’s going to be me: Nikki Haley
Washington: With her campaign gaining momentum after last month’s Republican primary debate, Indian-American presidential candidate Nikki Haley has said that former US president Donald Trump will not be the party’s nominee for the 2024 presidential elections.

The latest opinion poll released by The Wall Street Journal revealed that Haley, 51, was in the third spot in terms of popularity rating after Trump and Ron DeSantis. Her fellow Indian-American candidate Vivek Ramaswamy was in the fourth spot.

“I don’t think President Trump’s going to be the nominee. I think it’s going to be me. But I will tell you that any Republican is better than what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are doing,” Haley told CBS News in an interview on Sunday.

According to RealClearPolitics which monitors all the major national polls, Trump tops the list of average of all such polls with 53.6 per cent, followed by DeSantis (13 per cent), Ramaswamy (7.1 per cent) and Haley (6 per cent).

Haley, the former US ambassador to the UN, said a vote for President Biden is a vote for Vice President Harris.

“He is innocent until proven guilty. But you are implying that the American people are not smart. The American people are not going to vote for a convicted criminal. The American people are going to vote for someone who can win a general election. I have faith in the American people,” she said in response to a question.

“They know what they need to do. So I think that, yes, I will support the Republican nominee always. I will make sure that that we’re going to pick someone that’s going to beat a President Kamala Harris, because we can’t have a President Kamala Harris, or we’ll never get our country back,” she said.
