Before we get to Nikki Haley, let’s check out this new poll from Politico, which shows her with 6 percent support in 2024 … as opposed to Donald Trump, who enjoys 53 percent support. And for everyone who insists that Trump summoned a mob to have Mike Pence killed, Pence is doing pretty well at 12 percent. Of course, it’s way too early for a poll of this type, and as Stephen Miller points out, they forgot to add Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Any poll that does not include DeSantis is pretty much not worth your time or your clicks. https://t.co/zh78sRMch9

Haley certainly has been maintaining a statesmanlike presence on Twitter and certainly seems as though she has an eye on 2024. The Hill has found a Republican consultant who thinks she’s most likely to have a shot, though:
— The Hill (@thehill) February 16, 2021
Republican consultant Alex Castellanos says in a new interview that former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who dramatically broke with former President Trump last week, has the best shot at the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
“I think Nikki Haley is the front-runner and it’s going to be very hard to stop her,” Castellanos told OZY co-founder and CEO Carlos Watson. “I think she’s underestimated.”
In a clip from “The Carlos Watson Show” provided exclusively to The Hill, Castellanos went on to say that “politicians in Washington” dismiss the former South Carolina governor as “not really a heavyweight candidate” but “she’s the real deal and she’s going to be, I think, the horse to beat.”
We’ll admit that we had considered Haley a good choice for president at one point — she kicked butt at the U.N., but in a post-Trump world, Republicans want more solidly conservative options. And by conservative we don’t mean Jennifer Rubin or Max Boot “conservative.”
Haha. Not anymore.

That’s what the consultants are telling her so they can rake in dough.

Whatever @GOP consultant is saying this needs to find a new job because they are bad at this.

The same consultants who, in 2015, told us Donald Trump had no chance winning the nomination.

Looking at the poll it’s no wonder the Democrats were desperate to have Trump disqualified for office.
