Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Faulkner Focus: You Can't Fix the Country if You Can't Win

February 22, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Following new polling from the respected Marquette University Law School that shows Nikki Haley trouncing Joe Biden by 18 points, Haley joined Fox News' Harris Faulkner to highlight the importance of actually winning general elections…something Donald Trump hasn't done for seven years.

Watch the clip here:

Haley on wiping the floor with Joe Biden…

"The one you should have showed was the Marquette poll that just came out that shows that Trump and Biden are margin of error. We're going to once again be biting our nails, wondering if Trump can pull it off. And he can't. I defeat Joe Biden by 18 points in the Marquette poll. The thing is, we have to make sure that we can win. We want to do all these changes in our country. None of those changes matter if we can't beat Biden. And we've got to get that done. And that's why these primaries matter, is we can talk about who we like all day long. But at the end of the day, if who you like can't win, then we're in a whole ball of mess and we cannot take four more years of Joe Biden."

Haley on staying in the race…

"Look, if you and everybody else tells me to get out of this race, it will be the longest general election race in history. Keep in mind, 70% of Americans have said they don't want Trump or Biden. They are the most disliked politicians in America. 60% of Americans have said Donald Trump's too old and Joe Biden's too old to run for president. We have to win and we need a new generational leader that can put in eight years of hard work day and night making sure we get things done. No drama, no vendettas, just results for the American people. I'm determined to go to every single state and give people the right. If 70 percent don't want Trump or Biden, let them have another option. Let's let them vote. Let's let this play out. Ten days after South Carolina, 20 plus states and territories will vote. Let's let that happen."

Haley on Trump refusing to debate…

"He should debate. He should answer these questions about Ukraine. He should answer questions about Social Security and why he wants to cut benefits. He should answer questions about raising taxes. Those matter."
