Super Tuesday: Nikki Haley's Choice

Super Tuesday: Nikki Haley's Choice

Voters in 16 states and one territory head to the polls for the Republican and Democratic primaries on Super Tuesday. Without much excitement for the two major party nominations for the 2024 presidential election, both Donald Trump and Joe Biden will approach the number of delegates they need to become the “nominees.” “assumed” for their parties, a number they will reach later this month. But there are some questions that remain unanswered, including the decision Nikki Haley will make at the end of this election meeting.

Opinion polls indicate that the former US ambassador to the United Nations has a real chance of winning in only two states: Vermont and Virginia. However, even if she achieves that duality, she will fall insurmountably behind Trump when all the votes are counted, including those from California or Texas, which would distribute the largest share of delegates. She will then have to decide whether she wants to continue the race, adding more to the number of supporters of the former president who are angry with her for holding on like this, or withdraw. Money can be a big factor in this decision.

If Haley withdraws, the next lingering question will be whether or not she will support Trump, who called her the “Queen of the Swamp” on Saturday after she won the Republican primary in the District of Columbia, his only victory of the election season.

Voters will decide several other interesting races on Super Tuesday. In Texas, it will be interesting to see whether Democratic Rep. Colin Allred is able to win more than 50% of the vote in his party's primary to determine Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's challenger in November. If he does not succeed, he will have to participate in the second round on May 28.

In California, all-party primaries are being held to choose the two candidates who will face off in November to fill the former seat of the late Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. Democratic Representative Adam Schiff appears confident of obtaining first place, while former Los Angeles Dodgers star Steve Garvey, who is campaigning as a Republican, and Democratic Representative Katie Porter are competing for second place.

Porter accused Schiff of helping Garvey's cause by attacking him in ads, which allegedly helped raise the Republican's standing among California conservatives. One thing is certain, Schiff will have no difficulty defeating Garvey in November, which will not be the case for Porter, who will inherit the majority of support that will go Tuesday to Barbara Lee, another progressive Democratic representative in the race.

Finally, North Carolina's primary will confirm the top two candidates for the most important election of the gubernatorial season. Among the Republicans will be Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson, a very conservative African American, who will have to survive many problems.
