Ahead of the third Republican presidential debate, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is becoming a significant player in the political scene. Recent surveys and important endorsements indicate that Haley is rising as a strong candidate for the Republican nomination in the 2024 presidential race.
Rise in Iowa Surveys
A new Des Moines Register/NBC/Mediacom survey shows Haley now tied for second place with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis among Iowa Republicans. Both have the support of 16% of Iowa Republicans, a 10-point increase for Haley since August. However, former President Donald Trump continues to be the top choice with 43% support.

Important Endorsement in New Hampshire
Boosting her campaign, Haley recently received support from Judd Gregg, former Governor of New Hampshire. In an opinion piece, Gregg commended Haley’s leadership, fiscal responsibility, and her capability to handle international issues. He stated, “Nikki Haley is an exceptionally strong leader. She has the energy, skill, experience, and integrity to not only unite our party but also the nation.”
Growing Support in New Hampshire
Haley’s rising popularity isn’t limited to Iowa. A recent Suffolk University/Boston Globe/USA Today survey placed her in second place in New Hampshire with 19% support, ahead of DeSantis, who had 10%.
With the third Republican presidential debate coming up, these new developments could be crucial for Haley’s campaign. Her rise in surveys and key endorsements suggest she is effectively presenting herself as a strong alternative to Trump, particularly for voters looking for new leadership.
As the competition intensifies, attention will focus on Iowa and New Hampshire, where early wins can shape the rest of the campaign. Haley’s town halls in New Hampshire offer her a prime chance to strengthen her position and share her vision for a strong America.
