Haley-Trump showdown set after DeSantis drops out

By Michelle Shen

Nikki Haley has become the first Asian American to advance to the final two in a presidential primary.

The former South Carolina governor and United Nation’s ambassador under Donald Trump is the last remaining candidate to oppose the former president.

This happened when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Monday morning he’s dropping out of the race one day before the New Hampshire primary.

A CNN – University of New Hampshire poll shows Haley dropping to double digits behind Trump. The latest poll shows her with 39% support to Trump’s 50%. This after a poll in early January that found she had risen to just 7% points behind.

Trump has since gone on the attack against Haley, falsely stating she can’t be president because she’s a daughter of immigrants and also poking fund of her Indian American first name, Nimarata Nikki Randhawa. Some have accused of president of using code words to appeal to White supremacists and others who would never vote for an Indian American or Asian American Candidate.

Michelle Shen is in New Hampshire and talked to Haley supporters to find out what appeals to them about her.
