In a stunning victory, former President Donald Trump has once again shown his dominance in the Republican party by winning the New Hampshire primary over Nikki Haley, his final major rival for the GOP nomination. His victory comes just eight days after his resounding win in Iowa’s caucuses, highlighting his strong support among the party’s base.

Fox News was quick to project Trump as the winner of the primary, as he maintained a double-digit lead over Haley. In a statement to Fox News Digital’s Brooke Singman, Trump expressed his honor at the result and confidently stated that Haley should suspend her campaign.

However, despite the gap in the polls, Haley declared that she would continue to fight for the nomination, emphasizing that the race is “far from over.” Drawing upon the importance of New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary status, Haley asserted that she will march on to her home state of South Carolina for the next major contest on February 24th.

Amidst a crowded field that once boasted over a dozen candidates, Trump and Haley are now the only major contenders for the Republican nomination. With the departure of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis from the race on Sunday, Trump remains the undisputed frontrunner and is closer than ever to his goal of winning back the White House.

The former president’s legal troubles, including four indictments, have only fueled his popularity among Republican voters. As renowned pollster Rich Baris points out, Trump broke the record for the most votes ever cast for a presidential candidate in the New Hampshire primary, previously held by Bernie Sanders in 2016. At the time of publication, 152,565 votes had been cast for Trump, with 13% still yet to be tallied.

Trump’s victory deals a major setback to Haley’s attempts to unite an anti-Trump coalition made up of independents and Democrats. Despite her clear defeat, Haley doubled down on her commitment to the race, assuring her supporters that “this race is far from over.” However, Trump didn’t hold back in his criticism of Haley, calling her out for delivering a victory speech when she hadn’t actually won. As you can imagine, the left did not take Trumps win well.

As the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination continues, Trump’s dominance and popularity within the party show no signs of fading. With a decisive victory in New Hampshire under his belt, Trump is one step closer to cementing his legacy and possibly becoming the first president to be re-elected after leaving office. Only time will tell how his political journey will unfold, but for now, Trump remains the clear front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination.
