GOP candidates desperately trying to get voter support before primaries

by Will Jacobs

For millions of Americans, the looming presidential election brings feelings of hope…but fear as well.

Former president Trump is still leading by double digits in the GOP primary, according to CBS News, but former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley is starting to gain traction

“We’re optimistic for the future but curious to where it will lead us,” said Adam McInturuff, the senior director at Tunnl Data, a data analytics and election microtargeting firm in Arlington, Virginia. "The candidates have an important message, they have people they can reach, and feel confident about what they can contribute to the American public.”

In South Carolina especially, voters are gearing up to vote with one of their own on the ballot.

Former Gov. Nikki Haley is currently in second place to Trump, while South Carolina Senator Tim Scott recently suspended his campaign.

“I’ve seen quite a bit of movement in the polls from Haley, and even though her paid media spending is ratcheting up, it had not been the same as the Senator’s.”
