Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Newsmax: "I defeat Biden by 17 points."

January 03, 2024

KINGSTON, N.H. – This morning, Haley joined the hosts of Newsmax's National Report live from her Kingston town hall. She discussed her gains on Donald Trump, her lead over Joe Biden, and Biden's weakness on the economy and China.

On Haley gaining on Trump...

"I've done over a 150 town halls, taking every question, shaking every hand. I'm the last person to leave. Iowans and people in New Hampshire and South Carolina, they want to see you, they want to be able to ask those questions. You have to go and show that you want to earn their support, not just expect it. And I think that's what we're seeing. We had hundreds of people at our town hall last night in Rye, New Hampshire. We're going to have hundreds now lining up to see us in Kingston. We're going to be in Iowa tomorrow. The momentum on the ground is strong. People want something different. They're tired. They want to feel like government is serving them and they're not working for government. And in order to do that, we need to have a new generational leader that's ready to take on the problems with new solutions in the future. And I think right now, the problem is you've got Biden and Trump who aren't showing up, aren't answering questions of the voters, and aren't standing with their opponents, and it's a problem."

Haley on winning up and down the ticket...

"We need to do this for the sake of our kids and our grandkids, to make sure that we get America back. Because we can never be so arrogant to think that we can go into a nail-biter of an election. If you look at any of those head-to-heads against Biden, Trump, head-to-head, on a good day, they're even, he might be up by two. Wall Street Journal showed he's up by four. I'm in every one of those same general election polls. I defeat Biden by 17 points. 17 points. That's bigger than the presidency. That's when you're winning governorships, the House, the Senate, all the way to school board."

On Joe Biden's weakness on the economy and China...

"And regardless of what state you're in, Biden can go to them and say the economy is great all day long, but everybody knows that's not true when they go to the grocery store, when they go to the gas station, when they pay their mortgage bill, when they see their insurance payments. Everything that we have to pay has gone up, and Biden has seriously contributed to that. So he can go and say that China is a competitor, and we can go and see all of the intrusion that's happened in our country from China and say, no, China is not a competitor, they're an enemy. And we need to look at them the way they look at us. Biden has for too long thought that if he tells us things that we'll just believe him. That's not the case. We can't continue to have Biden. And let's never forget, a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris, and that should send a chill up everyone's spine."
