Trump’s Caucus Victories Are More Bad News For Nikki Haley

Former president and current GOP primary frontrunner Donald Trump is projected to win the Missouri GOP caucuses, with Decision Desk reporting that Trump received 100% of the vote, while former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) received zero.

However, Missouri has a different way of awarding delegates, handing out 51 of its 54 delegates through a months-long process known as a “caucus-convention system” that began with the Saturday caucus and will end at the state convention on May 4.

According to reporting from Town Hall, “The system dictates that 11 delegates will be awarded to candidates at the state level and five will be awarded from each of Missouri’s eight congressional districts. The three remaining delegates are the chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, and its national committeeman and committeewoman, who can support any candidate they wish, regardless of the caucus results.”

“A candidate that wins the support of more than 50% of the vote at a particular caucus site wins all the delegates at stake at that caucus,” the outlet added. “The delegates are awarded proportionately if no candidate clears the 50% threshold.”

Trump’s clear victory during the first day of the Missouri caucus proves how favored the former president is with voters and further shows how unpopular Haley is. She has yet to win a single race in the GOP primary, even losing her home state by nearly 30 points.

Two other states held caucuses on Saturday as well, Idaho and Michigan — both of which Trump won easily. The former president received 84.9% of the vote in Idaho compared to Haley’s 13.2%, and won 68.1% of the vote in Michigan compared to Haley’s 26.6%.

Trump now has a total of 244 delegates, while Haley has just 24. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who dropped out of the race and endorsed Trump, received nine delegates while still in the race, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy received three delegates before dropping out of the race and joining Trump on the campaign trail.

Haley has refused to drop out of the race despite losing by massive margins in every state and embarrassing herself by both losing in her home state and losing to “none of these candidates” by nearly 30 points in Nevada. It has also been proven that a significant portion of Haley’s voters in several states were independents or Democrats attempting to sabotage Trump.

As Mar. 5 is Super Tuesday, this will likely be the final battle between Trump and Haley — as she is expected to drop out after losing every race scheduled for that day.
