    People so far, the the extent they're familiar with her, tend to like Nikki Haley as a person and that's likely a factor here too. Check out the various averages of major politicians' personal favorability ratings believe. These gauge how many Americans have a favorable opinion of said person and subtract from that total the number who say they have an unfavorable opinion thereof instead. These are the current averages indicated by national surveys, ordered from worst result to best:

    McConnell: -36.4
    Harris: -18
    Trump: -15.2
    Biden: -14.8
    DeSantis: -12.8
    Schumer: -10
    Johnson: -3.4
    Jeffries: -2.7
    Haley: +0.6

    Notice how Nikki Haley is the only one in net positive territory.
    Simple. It is a shiny toy.

    First it was DeSantis. He flopped.
    Then Youngkin. Failure to launch.

    Now Neocon Nikki? Yeah, no.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I don't think you understand how bad it is in the real world.

    I will give you an example. Today I went to by 2 bags of Christmas candy for the jars in the office. Not only are the bags 2 oz smaller, they were on sale for $9.99 The same bag that I paid $4.59 for last year that was larger

    There are lost of Democrats that are not going to vote for Biden, because they can't afford it.

    There are times when military force is prudent. There are more times where it’s not. Neo cons don’t get that. They see more occasions where military force overseas is required.
    Explain how she is different from Trump? Are you saying he would not use military force?

I don't care how well he and Haley get along, he's simply incapable of accepting any form of electoral defeat, and his moron base will believe him and sink Haley's chances in the general election.
    You actually think that people that can't pay their bills are going to vote for Biden? Why would they do that?

    Maybe you can tell me how her policies differ from Trumps?

    I know that you can't tell me how Trump is going to govern because I have asked many times.

    Haley is a shiny toy. She will never be President.

    If you want to know how Trump will govern review his first term, and listen to his many speeches.

    I have tried to be open minded hoping Republicans might have a decent playing field and some real choices. But it is abundantly clear that Trump will get the nomination and the relentless TDS attacks from Democrats and their corrupt political machinery have made it so. We either stand up to this or risk losing the Republic if we have not already?

    Time to live with that!
    Your Trump Derangement Syndrome is NOT my problem!
