Who will be the Republican presidential nominee?

I think there's actually a chance that Nikki Haley could become the GOP (Republican) nominee. Think about it. Trump won NH 54.4% to 43.6%. He got barely more than half of the votes. She got 6.7 points less than half. As time goes on and more legal issues come into play against trump, his hold on the regular GOP will decrease. He rejects anyone who doesn't kiss the ring and say his nakedness is fully clothes. He's alienating mainstream Republicans. While I think the chances of Nikki becoming president are slim, I think the chances of her becoming the nominee will increase as time goes on. What do you think?

I think if she does not win her home state, she has no chance. Donald Trump is one of only former presidents not to win his home state and become president. Of course, he lost popular vote but our electoral college, he still won.

Yeah. I think the electoral college has outlived its usefulness. We are no longer a country of farmers. Our rural areas no longer need help with their votes.

@jerzgirl Agreed and we all know why they will not fix it. Its just another form of Gerrymandering.

What does GOP mean, please? Not all members live in your country and understand your abbreviations.

That is true. My apologies. GOP (Republicans) stands for "Grand Old Party". In the 1800s and early 1900s, they were the liberals while Democrats were the conservatives. That began changing mid-century when Democrats began putting more liberal policies into place to help us both get out of the depression and recover from two world wars. But, when they pursued equal rights for all, southern Democrats, called Dixiecrats, joined the Republicans and began to push more and more to the right. Now, with trump's MAGA (Make America Great Again) ideas, MAGA has left the GOP regulars behind and become virtually a third party, closer to fascism and autocracy than democracy. But, the GOP are currently our right wing party, with MAGA being the far right extreme. A little verbose, but I hope you understand.

@jerzgirl Thank you for the explanation. Maybe you could insert (Republicans) into the post. I'm sure that other non-Americans don't know the abbreviation, either.

Nikki Haley ONLY got as much as she got because she gained some votes from DeSantis who dropped out two days before the primary. Otherwise she would have gotten much less of the vote. I think Haley drops out sooner rather than later. MAYBE she makes it to Super Tuesday? But she's losing donors handily, so I am not sure she has near enough support to pull anything off. Trump still remains ahead of her by miles and miles, and most polling shows Trump has a better chance in the general than Haley does. Trump will be the GOP nominee. No doubt about it.
