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

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

Despite this setback, Haley has vowed to stay in the race, stating in an interview with CNN that she feels a responsibility to “save the country.” With 10% of the votes counted, Trump has garnered 64.6% of the votes, while Haley trails behind with 31.2%.

While Haley’s defeat in Michigan marks another setback for her campaign, she remains Trump’s only remaining rival in the primaries. The former governor of South Carolina received 40% of the votes in Michigan, a respectable figure that has allowed her to justify staying in the race.

However, with ‘Super Tuesday’ looming and 15 states, including Texas and California, set to participate in the voting, Haley’s chances seem slim. The Michigan primaries, while having little representation in terms of delegates, are seen as crucial for Trump as he continues to gather support among Republican voters.

With more than a million votes already cast in Michigan, final results are pending, but Trump currently holds 110 delegates out of the 1,215 needed for the official nomination at the Republican National Convention in July.

Despite ongoing legal challenges, Trump remains a strong contender, with Republican supporters rallying behind him. If this trend continues, he is on track to face President Joe Biden in the general election on November 5.

In a parallel development, President Joe Biden emerged as the winner of the Democratic party primaries in Michigan, with 78% support compared to nearly 16% of “uncommitted” votes. This critical figure reflects voter sentiment regarding US involvement in the Gaza conflict, a key issue in the upcoming election.

Both Biden and Trump are set to visit the border with Mexico in a pre-campaign event, focusing on immigration as a key issue. Biden will travel to Brownsville, Texas, while Trump plans his own border visit, criticizing Biden’s record on immigration and promising mass deportations if re-elected.

As the race heats up, both candidates are gearing up for a fierce battle ahead of the November election, with immigration and other key issues at the forefront of the campaign.
