According to a surprising new poll, if Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor, secures the nomination, the upcoming general election would be an easy victory for her.

A recent survey conducted by the Wall Street Journal revealed that Haley currently has a notable advantage of 17 points over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical one-on-one contest. If this scenario were to occur and the margin remains unchanged, it would become the biggest winning margin in a general election since 1984, surpassing Ronald Reagan’s victory over Walter Mondale by 18 points.

For the matchup to occur, Haley needs to defeat former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary. However, the latest polls indicate that she is still significantly behind in that competition, trailing by 40 points or possibly even more.

Despite the clear preference for Haley over Biden in the poll, it also indicates that Trump is performing well.

According to the survey, Trump is four points ahead of Biden at 47-43. Remarkably, the poll even discovers that if Trump were to be found guilty of a felony (he currently faces 91 felony charges in four criminal cases), he would only be trailing Biden by one point. Additionally, the poll shows that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is in a tie with Biden at 45-45.
