The Republican National Committee (RNC) chair has called for Nikki Haley to drop out of the primaries so we can rally behind President Trump.
Nikki Haley is the only runner left against President Trump after Trump won in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Governor Ron DeSantis had the right idea to drop out after scoring second place in Iowa, but Nikki Haley still seems deluded into the idea that she might win.
See what RNC chair Ronna McDaniel said here:

More from The Hill:
Republican National Committee (RNC) chair Ronna McDaniel said the results of the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary signal that Republican voters know who they will support in November, and the GOP should unite around former President Trump.
Her comments come just a day after Trump took the victory in the Granite State, leading former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley by double digits. McDaniel, in response, said she doesn’t see a pathway for Haley to win the nomination.
“I’m looking at the math and the path going forward and I don’t see it for Nikki Haley,” she told Fox News’s Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum Tuesday. I think she’s run a great campaign but I do think there is a message that’s coming out from the voters, which is very clear.”
“We need to unite around our eventual nominee, which is going to be Donald Trump and we need to make sure we beat Joe Biden,” McDaniel added.
This primary season has been a waste of time and money.
The fact that President Trump won both Iowa and New Hampshire without campaigning at all this primary season speaks volumes.
The people want President Trump.

Hey Ronna how about you show her how it’s done and drop out yourself?
Nikki Haley may be a 2 state loser, but you’ve been losing for 6+ years!

Some might see Nikki Haley’s performance as a sign that President Trump won’t do well in the general election.
That’s not the case.
Look at this clip:

Many ‘independent’ voters participate in the Republican primaries to vote for Haley.
This way, they can try to knock President Trump out of the running well before the 2024 presidential election.
It doesn’t look like Nikki Haley can even win her home state of South Carolina.
Politico shares more on that story:
Nikki Haley thinks she’s on a collision course with Donald Trump in South Carolina.
It might actually be a brick wall.
Haley’s stronger-than-expected performance in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary held Trump’s victory to just over 10 points, keeping alive her dim hopes of toppling the former president. And those slim chances now hinge on a come-from-behind victory in her home state next month.
Others don’t believe it. Even as Haley is framing the race as just beginning, both parties are anointing Trump as the GOP nominee. President Joe Biden said Tuesday night it was “clear” that Trump would be his general-election opponent, and Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel called Trump “our eventual nominee” in an interview on Fox News Channel.
But New Hampshire is essentially the friendliest territory Haley can expect — an electorate swarmed by moderates and independents on Tuesday — and it only gets harder from here.
Any momentum Haley can claim out of New Hampshire runs into daunting polls and an expensive, month-long campaign to reverse them in a state where, if not for her connections, she’d likely have little chance of success.
The handful of contests over the next month will be largely inconsequential. Nevada is technically holding two GOP contests, but Trump and Haley aren’t even running on the same ballot, and the state party will award all its delegates in the caucus in which Trump is a candidate on Feb. 8. And only four delegates are at stake in the tiny Virgin Islands, also on Feb. 8.
Nikki Haley’s campaign was dead the moment it began.
She should drop out now with what little credibility she has left.
