American Left Stunned After New Poll Shows Who Haley’s Supporters Are Backing to Win Election

by Jessica

A recent Emerson College poll has unveiled a surprising trend among supporters of former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley: a significant majority are now leaning towards casting their votes for President Joe Biden in the upcoming election rather than for former President Donald Trump.

According to a report by News Max on Friday, March 8, 2024, the poll, released on Thursday, indicates that 63% of Haley supporters are backing Biden following her withdrawal from the GOP primary, while only 27% intend to vote for Trump, with 10% remaining undecided.

In response to Haley’s exit from the race, Biden extended a welcoming hand to her supporters, in stark contrast to Trump’s stance.

While Trump made it clear that he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters, Biden emphasized that there is a place for them in his campaign.

“Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters. I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign,” Biden stated in a campaign statement.

During her suspension speech, Haley emphasized that Trump must “earn” the votes of her supporters and refrained from endorsing him.

She stated, “It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him, and I hope he does that.”

Haley’s stance reflects a sentiment among her supporters that Trump needs to make efforts to win their trust and support.

The Emerson survey also revealed that 52% of Haley supporters had voted for Biden in 2020. Currently, Trump and Biden are tied nationally with 45% support each, according to the poll.

However, when undecided voters were compelled to choose, Biden secured a slight lead of 51% to 49%.

Additionally, when third-party candidates, particularly independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr., were included, Trump held a narrow lead over Biden by just one point.

Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, highlighted the volatility of the race, stating, “This race is well within the poll’s margin of error and could move in either direction.”

The poll also provided insights into voters’ priorities, with the economy ranking as the most important issue for 29% of respondents, followed by immigration at 20%, and threats to democracy at 14%.

Biden’s job approval rating stands at 41%, with 48% of respondents expressing disapproval.

The survey, conducted from March 5-6 among 1,350 registered voters nationwide, had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

The findings of the Emerson College poll show the shifting dynamics within the political landscape and the potential impact of Haley’s withdrawal from the GOP primary on voter preferences.

With the election drawing closer, the race remains fluid, with both candidates vying for crucial support among undecided voters and former Haley supporters.
