Former President Donald Trump’s recent appearance at a football game between Clemson and South Carolina, where he received rousing cheers from the crowd, served to underscore his lead in South Carolina polls. His lead also raises serious questions about the challenges facing Nikki Haley—for if she cannot surpass Trump’s popularity in her home state, what does that mean for her national aspirations?
