Skip to comments.Senate anti-Trump GOP see Haley as best hope to avoid disaster
Posted on 12/04/2023 8:26:54 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27
Senate Republicans who are concerned about former President Trump’s viability in a general election now see Nikki Haley as the last, best chance of denying Trump the GOP presidential nomination and averting what they see as a potential general election disaster.
GOP senators who don’t support Trump acknowledge he could win the presidency, given President Biden’s weak job approval ratings, but they view Haley as much more electable because she does not alienate independent and suburban women voters like Trump does.
They are worried that if Trump is the GOP nominee, it could still lead to a disastrous result for their party.
GOP lawmakers recognize that Trump has a commanding lead in GOP primary polls, but many see Haley as a better choice because she does not face Trump’s legal issues that include 91 felony counts in four separate criminal trials.

The new deep-state propaganda narrative being heard everywhere seems to be: “ignore Trump’s popularity, because in the ‘general election’ he will be a disaster!”
McRomneyBush in a skirt?
Yeah that’ll make voters walk over broken glass to vote
Haley is a disaster. They fooled me with Mittens, I won’t be fooled again! (h/t to The Who).
I won’t vote for her and people in my family won’t either.
She is a guaranteed loser.
Actually the GOP Senate probably knows that and really wants a return of Joey or a counterpart of his.
Haley would lose all but the reddest of red states. I’d vote RFK jr (or write in Trump) before I’d vote for neocon anchor baby
Nikki Haley is the Robert Dole of 1996. The Mitt Romney of 2012. Putting up some moderate with absolutely no chance of beating the rat is a useless proposition.
Plus, after three debates I still have no clue what Nikki Haley’s platform is. How does she differ from Trump? Until a Republican candidate can tell me that, they will not get my vote.
Haley would be a disaster.
No - absolutely not. She’s nothing more than the new globalist candidate.
She kicked off the whole destroy history movement by trying to bury the confederacy.
I’ll pass as well.
Hell will be froze over sold before I, or anyone in my family, would ever pull the lever for this unqualified AINO Indian beotch. The GOPe can go royally F themselves. It’s about all they’re good at these days.
Nikki holds very few actual conservative values - She is a flip-flopper not much removed from John Kerry... She knows how to tell people what they want to hear - but if one listens - you clearly see she has zero REAL Conservative values she is willing to actually stand on.
Haley is a disaster.
Haley has advocated bring “Palestinians” to the US....
That in and of itself, should disqualify her from any serious consideration for President.
Except of course among the establishment GOP, who are owned by globalists, they think this is a good thing.
Continuing to destroy America as long as their backers get to pad their pockets, that’s the GOPe... period.
(Haley would lose all but the reddest of red states)
I think true conservatives can see through her scam by now.
She might get the Code Pink of blue states
That’s why she consistently polls poorly.
The Liberals at The sHill know that Nikki is a loser - so they pimp her constantly.
Haley doesn’t have the dynamic genius Trump has.
McConnells Senate departure (to spend more time with his family) as best hope for GOP to avoid disaster.
The “right wing” of the Deep State Uniparty is finding it difficult to keep in place their ability to surrender for fun and profit.
