POLL: Voters Want Harris Out, Haley In as Trump’s VP
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey is out and boy is there a lot to unpack in there.
For one, my speculation about Haley being in Trump’s camp was more or less confirmed.
Secondly, the sheer dislike the American people have for Harris is now fully on display.
When Haley came out in favor of doxxing social media users, I thought it was the death of her campaign, but I could not have been more wrong.
She has not only gained popularity, but now MAGA is starting to flock to her, with 16% of those surveyed saying they would like to see a Trump-Haley ticket for the general election.
Haley clearly led the pack on this front, with DeSantis coming in second at 12%, Chris Christie in third at 11%, and Vivek Ramaswamy in fourth at 10%. Rest assured, there is zero chance of DeSantis or Christie signing on to be Trump’s VP.
Something even more interesting than a Trump-Haley ticket is how people feel about the Biden-Harris ticket, with only 41% supporting Biden picking Harris again.
Compare that to the 45% that would like to see Biden with another VP in 2024. The numbers among Democrats were not much better, with only 57% wanting to see Harris remain on the ticket.
While I once thought that Haley could be DeSantis’ secret weapon against Trump, it turns out that she may be Trump’s secret weapon against Biden, with 15% of Democrat voters supporting Haley as Trump’s VP, second behind only Christ Christie, who came in at 16%, which is not surprising considering his relentless attacks against Trump.
From these numbers, if Trump wants to end DeSantis right now, he should offer Haley the VP slot and be done with it.
Even if he doesn’t, her recent actions tell me that she will have some role in Trump’s administration if he wins the primary race and general election.
And Ron DeSantis will be left by the side of the road wondering what the heck happened and how so many people chose a man literally on trial for his freedom over someone many consider to be the best governor in the country.
The only solace DeSantis will have is many first-time presidential candidates fail because they simply have no idea what to expect. DeSantis got a crash course, and I would have to imagine he will come back far wiser in 2028.
