Ms. Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., came a close third with nearly 20% of the votes polled. Former U.S. president Trump won the caucus with over 50% of the votes. Indian-American Nikki Haley finished third in the Iowa caucuses. Nikki Haley asserted that seventy per cent of Americans do not want another Trump-Biden rematch. The majority of people disapprove of both of them.
The Iowa caucuses on Monday formally pushed off the beginning of the long process by which the Republicans and Democrats choose their nominees for the presidential election on November 5. Florida Governor Ron De Santis came in second with 21% votes. Fellow Indian-American Vivek Ramaswamy secured 7.7% of the votes polled and suspended his presidential campaign. Nikki Haley, who has been climbing the ladder over the last few weeks, asserted she is headed to New Hampshire, the battleground for the next Republican primary election on 23 January.

Addressing her supporters, the lone woman in the race on either side of the political spectrum says that a Trump-Biden rematch will be another toss-up election. It could go either way and could have more disputes over election interference. Joe Biden can win again, with Kamala Harris waiting in the wings. Nikki Haley also claimed the Republican contest to choose the presidential nominee, now a two-person race.
“Trump and Biden are both about 80 years old, and they both put our country deeper in debt, and our kids will never forgive them for it. Trump and Biden need a vision for our country’s future because the past consumes both.“Nikki Haley
Ms Haley asked supporters to look at what happens when she goes head-to-head against Biden and wins in a landslide. It is not even close. That means no recounts, no lawsuits, and no doubts. It means no more Chuck Schumer leading the Senate. We will limit the do-nothing Washington politicians, rebuild our economy, and secure our border. And make no mistake, it will restore our national pride.
A president who will rebuild our economy, close our border, and stand up to our enemies. Most importantly, we deserve a president who will stop our self-loathing, end the division and fear, and make America strong and proud!” she said.
