Haley’s Floundering Campaign Increasingly Funded By Biden Donors

New reporting indicates GOP hopeful Nikki Haley’s primary presidential campaign is being significantly financed by over 5,200 former donors to Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. America First conservatives see this as validation of President Donald Trump’s claims that Haley’s primary goal is to thwart his path to re-election rather than genuinely contest the presidency.

According to Politico, the former United Nations ambassador’s campaign coffers were swelled by donations from 1,600 individuals who previously backed Biden, contributing over half a million dollars in January alone. This was despite Haley’s underwhelming performance in the early primaries, placing third in Iowa and suffering a notable defeat in New Hampshire.

The report is enlightening, especially considering Haley’s financial backing from figures like Reid Hoffman. He is a well-known supporter of liberal causes and a significant donor to multiple anti-Trump initiatives. Further, he has readily admitted that his only real political objective this year is to defeat President Trump by any means available.

Despite the support she is receiving from thousands of Democrat voters, Haley’s campaign spent more than it raised last month. Her campaign has spent heavily in her native South Carolina on media production and advertising in the runup to this Saturday’s primary contest in the Palmetto State.

Haley’s tactics of courting not just Republicans but also moderate and independent voters unhappy with Trump and Biden hint at an attempt to reshape her voter base. However, this strategy has yet to yield significant dividends in the primaries, with Trump’s support within the GOP appearing unshaken.

Moreover, the heavy spending by Haley’s supporting super PAC, SFA Fund Inc., despite a lack of substantial single donations, contrasts sharply with the more measured approach of pro-Trump super PACs. This financial recklessness points to a desperate bid to gain ground. This strategy has not caught on at all with the broader Republican base.

The current RealClearPolitics national polling average for the GOP nomination sees Trump with a lead of 57.9 percentage points over Haley among likely Republican voters nationwide, 74.8% to 16.9%.
