Nikki Haley crushes competition in South Carolina Presidential Poll

43.2% says they will vote for former President Donald Trump, who skipped Wednesday's Republican Presidential debate


Washington DC – Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley polled an astounding 41.3 % of the vote in a 5-way poll that included the participants in the 3rd GOP Presidential poll from Wednesday night. 

Ron DeSantis came up short, and in second place at 23.6 %.  Home state hero Senator Tim Scott polled a respectable 14.1 %, while former Gov. Chris Christie and Vivek Ramaswamy cratered at 4.7 % and 6.9 % respectively.

Interestingly, when asked if they would vote for Donald Trump, or their choice from the debate stage, only 43.2 % chose the former President.  Haley again did well again, garnering 69.5 % of the people who voted for her in the first question.
