Donald Trump defeated Nikki Haley in the Michigan primary and consolidates his lead in the Republican race

Former President Donald Trump secured a significant victory in the Republican Party primaries in Michigan, defeating his rival, former US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley. Projections from major media outlets such as CNN and NBC confirmed Trump’s win, further solidifying his lead in the Republican race as ‘Super Tuesday’ approaches on March 5.

Despite Haley’s loss, she made it clear that she will not be withdrawing from the race and will be participating in ‘Super Tuesday’, stating that she feels a responsibility to “save the country.” With Trump garnering 64.6% of the votes and Haley with 31.2%, the former governor of South Carolina remains Trump’s only remaining rival in the primaries.

The Michigan primary results are significant in terms of delegate allocation, with only 16 out of 55 delegates being determined based on Tuesday’s results. The remainder will be decided at the party’s state convention on March 2.

Looking ahead to ‘Super Tuesday’, where fifteen states will participate in the voting, the odds seem to be in Trump’s favor as he currently holds 110 delegates out of the 1,215 needed for the official nomination at the Republican National Convention in July.

Despite facing legal challenges, Trump remains steadfast as his Republican supporters continue to rally behind him. It appears increasingly likely that he will face President Joe Biden in the November general election.

Speaking of Biden, the current US president won the Democratic party primaries in Michigan, facing nearly 16% of “uncommitted” votes, showing discontent with his support for Israel in the Gaza Strip conflict. Biden and Trump are set to visit the border with Mexico in the coming days, focusing on immigration as a key issue in the pre-campaign phase.

Trump’s campaign has criticized Biden for the immigration crisis, while Biden emphasizes his immigration proposal and blames Republicans for rejecting it for political reasons. The upcoming visits to the border will highlight the candidates’ contrasting approaches to the issue of immigration.

With information from EFE and AFP, the primaries in Michigan have set the stage for a crucial phase in the race for the presidency, with Trump and Biden gearing up for what promises to be a heated electoral contest.
