Voters have only two choices in this contest: Trump or Haley.

Michigan has 55 delegates who have pledged their support.

Trump said he had previously won the Iowa Caucuses and left New Hampshire with an impressive victory. He also swept Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands caucuses. And then he won South Carolina, with a much bigger win than he expected.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, he said: “I feel very honored.” This was after a victory in South Carolina on Saturday. “We are setting records in all states.”

Nikki Haley, Republican presidential candidate, speaks at her election night party in Charleston, South Carolina, on February 24, 2024.

Haley, who lost another race — this time to her native South Carolina — promised to remain in the race.

Michigan’s government has been taken over by Democrats.

From 1972 to 1988, Michigan was a Republican stronghold. Michigan was part of a “blue wall”, which backed Democratic nominees for six consecutive presidential elections between 1972 and 2012.

Trump’s narrow victory over Hillary Clinton in the White House was due to his reversal of the state.

In the 2020 elections, President Biden won Michigan by almost three points. He brought Michigan back to the Democrats’ side and prevented Trump from re-election.
