Nikki Haley smacked with a humiliating loss that could end her campaign

Haley is the only contender left against Donald Trump. But her path to victory has evaporated before her eyes.

And Nikki Haley was smacked with a humiliating loss that could end her campaign.

President Biden won Nevada’s Democratic primary Tuesday, while former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley suffered a devastating defeat in the Republican primary, when former President Donald Trump’s name was not on the ballot.

“None of these candidates” received the most votes on the GOP side of the bill, with more than 60% of the vote when the race was called by the Associated Press.

Haley was the only prominent Republican candidate who chose the Nevada primary, which has no delegates at stake, over the state GOP caucus, which will be held Thursday and has 26 delegates up for grabs.

Faced with virtually no competition, Haley received 33.2% of the vote in a low-turnout campaign.

The Nevada Secretary of State’s Office reported that only 11,802 ballots had been cast in person as of 2 p.m. local time.

The Haley campaign admitted Monday that it hadn’t “spent a dime or an ounce of energy on Nevada.”

Trump, 77, is anticipated to win Thursday’s Silver State caucus and enhance his delegate total ahead of the Feb. 24 South Carolina primary, where he leads in polls by 27 points, according to a RealClearPolitics survey average.

Meanwhile, Biden increased his delegate count after earning 90% support in the contest shortly after midnight Eastern time, edging out his long-shot opponents and positioning himself to claim the majority, if not all, of the state’s 36 Democratic delegates.

The “None of these candidates” option earned 5.7% of the votes, placing second.

Marianne Williamson, a self-help guru, finished third with approximately 2.5% support.

Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.), who received nearly 20% of the vote in last month’s New Hampshire Democratic primary, could not appear on the Nevada ballot because he filed after the state’s Oct. 16 deadline.

Biden’s triumph in Nevada’s first-in-the-West contest follows his comfortable victory in Saturday’s South Carolina Democratic primary, where 55 delegates were at stake.

The incumbent also won New Hampshire’s Democratic primary on January 23, despite not being on the ballot and having supporters write in his name.

Biden needs 1,968 delegates to win the Democratic candidacy.

The next fight on the Democratic schedule is Michigan’s Feb. 27 primary.
