Media and Dems eagerly push Nikki Haley as GOPs best bet to beat Biden

In a surprising turn of events, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is leading President Joe Biden by six points in a new poll, handily outpacing even former President Trump.

The hypothetical matchup in a CNN poll has the former South Carolina Governor beating Biden 49% to 43%. Trump beats Biden 47% to 46% and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ties Biden at 47%. To round out a poll that many will doubt considering its source, Pence got 46% with Biden getting 44%. Tim Scott scored the same as Pence. Vivek Ramaswamy had 45% to Biden’s 46% and Chris Christie landed 44% to Biden’s 42%.

The poll conducted on Thursday is causing the leftist media to proclaim that Nikki Haley is the GOP’s best chance to beat Biden. But one biased leftist poll does not make a quorum in the race. Conservatives just won’t fall for those numbers.

CNN is claiming that Haley is the only one to escape the margin of error in the poll.

Flip the script to Republican polling and an entirely different scenario unfolds. Every candidate trails Trump by double digits and they aren’t low double digits. DeSantis is the only other candidate polling in double digits currently, according to Fox News.

Haley, who was an impressive US ambassador to the United Nations under President Trump, is hinging her campaign on her foreign policy expertise and her time as South Carolina’s governor.

But conservatives are not sold on Haley by any means. She has spoken against Trump and has disastrously handled issues such as taking down historical statues in her state.

One of Haley’s strongest selling points is that she is very blunt that a vote for Biden is actually a vote for Vice President Kamala Harris.

“We all know Joe Biden thinks he’s going to run and win this election and then he’s going to hand it off to a president Kamala Harris,” Haley claimed on Fox News Wednesday night.

She declared that she would “stomp all over Joe Biden” in a matchup and then said, “Everybody really needs to know this is me running against Kamala Harris for president.

The female presidential candidate is the only one calling for age restrictions for US politicians that would mandate elderly incumbents to prove their mental acuity.

Haley mocked the US Senate last week as a “nursing home.” A sentiment many Americans now agree with. That declaration follows House Minority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) freezing for a second time in mid-sentence as he publicly spoke.

“It’s sad,” she told Fox News in an interview, specifically referring to McConnell’s incidents. “No one should feel good about seeing that any more than we should feel good about seeing Dianne Feinstein, any more than we should feel good about a lot of what’s happening or seeing Joe Biden’s decline.”

“What I will say is, right now, the Senate is the most privileged nursing home in the country,” Haley quipped. “I mean, Mitch McConnell has done some great things and he deserves credit. But you have to know when to leave.”

She has pushed for all politicians over the age of 75 to complete mental competency tests before being allowed to run for re-election. It’s a move that is gaining ground considering the age and mental condition of a number of congressmembers.

“I think that we do need mental competency tests for anyone over the age of 75, I wouldn’t care if they did them over the age of 50,” Haley told Fox News in an interview.

“But these are people making decisions on our national security. They’re making decisions on our economy, on the border. We need to know they’re at the top of their game,” she asserted.
