Nikki Haley, the Republican presidential contender, said on Thursday that, should he be the nominee, former President Trump will not prevail in the general election.

Haley said, "Donald Trump will not win the general election," in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. He will not win a general election, even if you can make him win any primary. Either me or [Vice President] Harris will be the first female president of the United States.

Haley went on, "But you can mark my words—if Donald Trump is the candidate, he will not win a general election."

Voters "cannot complain about what occurs in a general election if you do not actually think about it in this primary," according to Haley's further statement.

Haley is far behind Trump in her native state of South Carolina, where she previously held the position of governor, according to many surveys. Haley has 33.1 percent of the vote compared to the last president's 63.8 percent, according to the Hill/Decision Desk HQ polling average.

Just a few days before Saturday's GOP primary in the Palmetto State, the former UN ambassador earlier this week dismissed the polling disadvantage.

Can you provide an explanation to the average viewer who reads the polls and wonders, "Why is she down in her own state?," given that you may be down 20 to 30 points in your home state? How would you advise them? In a NewsNation interview with Haley, Blake Burman posed this question.

"You know, I would tell them that we beat a dozen other guys even though they claimed I would not make it to Iowa." Not only did we reach Iowa, but we were barely 1% away from taking second place. We have twenty percent," stated Haley.

"They claimed I was down 30 points on election day in New Hampshire." 43 percent of the vote went to us. This is — the South Carolina poll is the only one that counts," she said.
