Nikki Haley’s base is made up primarily of Democrats, Wall Street fat cats, and Never-Trumpers. 

Exit polling showed more than 70% of Haley’s support in New Hampshire came from unregistered Republicans.

And Mitch McConnell referred to Donald Trump with two words that sent Nikki Haley off the rails.

Former President Donald Trump is the first Republican Presidential candidate since 1976 to win both the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire Primary in a contested race.

He crushed the rest of the field in Iowa, finishing 30 points ahead of second-place finisher Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Despite Democrats and independents voting for Haley in New Hampshire, Trump still defeated her by 11 points.

After Trump’s back-to-back decisive victories, political pundits and analysts all agree that he has the GOP nomination in the bag.

Even Hillary Clinton was forced to admit this reality.

“After the Republican primary in New Hampshire, the choice for November is becoming clearer than ever,” Clinton wrote on X. “Will you choose expanding freedom and strengthening democracy with Biden, or more abortion bans and election denialism with Trump?”

“I say: Four more years of progress,” she added.

But it was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who put to bed any talk of losing the Presidential Primary.

During a meeting with Senate Republicans, McConnell referred to Trump as “the nominee.”

“McConnell referred to Trump as ‘the nominee’ and noted the former President wants to run his 2024 campaign centered on immigration,” Punchbowl News reported. “And the GOP leader said, ‘We don’t want to do anything to undermine him.’”

“We’re in a quandary,” McConnell added.

McConnell has been a thorn in Donald Trump’s side for years.

The fact that he admitted Trump is “the nominee” means Haley has no path to victory.

But Haley is burying her head in the sand and refusing to see the writing on the wall.

“What a great night,” she told supporters after her double-digit loss in New Hampshire. 

She is planning on continuing in the race to the South Carolina Primary on February 24, where Donald Trump is currently leading her by more than 30 points.
