President Donald Trump appears to have it in the bag in the Palmetto State’s upcoming GOP primary election, all but sealing the deal on winning the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in 2024.

In a new poll from Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, the president has a 40-point lead over the state’s former Republican governor and presidential candidate, Nikki Haley.

Such a gap in Haley’s home state is remarkable and strongly illustrates Trump’s popularity among Republican primary voters.

Over the weekend, President Trump trounced Haley by showing off South Carolina support at a New Hampshire rally in Manchester. He brought up a slate of Palmetto State lawmakers and leaders onstage who support his 2024 campaign, including South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R).

As reported by RSBN, other leaders brought onstage included Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette, state Attorney General Alan Wilson, state House Speaker Murrell Smith, State Treasurer Curtis Loftis, and South Carolina GOP Reps. William Timmons, Joe Wilson, and Russell Fry.

On Monday morning, Haley lost another potential Republican endorsement in South Carolina, as well, as Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., strongly endorsed President Donald Trump.

According to the Associated Press, Rep. Mace explained, “I don’t see eye to eye perfectly with any candidate. And until now I’ve stayed out of it. But the time has come to unite behind our nominee.”

Mace has not necessarily been a tried-and-true supporter of President Trump over the years, but it appears that GOP lawmakers are beginning to fall into line to support the 45th president as it has become clear that he will likely be the Republican presidential nominee this year.

On Sunday afternoon, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., dropped out of the GOP presidential primary race, revealing that he saw no “clear path to victory,” therefore leaving Nikki Haley as the last candidate standing on the field to challenge Trump for the nomination.
