In a recent survey conducted by AP VoteCast, it was revealed that approximately 40% of voters who supported Nikki Haley in the South Carolina primary were Democrats who had previously voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

The survey involved over 2,400 voters who participated in the Republican primary in South Carolina on Saturday.

According to the Associated Press, "About 9 in 10 Trump voters said they were driven by their support for him, not by objections to his opponent. Haley’s voters were much more divided: About half were motivated by supporting her, but nearly as many turned out to oppose Trump.” This indicates a significant divide among Haley's supporters, with many voting against Trump rather than for Haley.

The report further elaborated on Haley's voter base, stating, “Who is her coalition? Haley dominated among South Carolina voters who correctly said that Democrat Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. Roughly three-quarters of her supporters say Biden was legitimately elected president in 2020, and about 4 in 10 voted for Biden in that election. Her problem is that about 6 in 10 Republican primary voters say they believed Biden was not legitimately elected.”

A similar trend was observed in a poll conducted by NBC News, the Des Moines Register, and Iowa pollster Selzer & Co. ahead of the Iowa caucuses. The poll found that Haley's supporters in Iowa were twice as likely to vote for Joe Biden over Donald Trump. When asked about their voting preferences if Trump were to be the Republican nominee, 43% of Haley's supporters said they would vote for Biden, compared to just 11% of Republican caucus-goers overall.

In 2019, Haley was elected to Boeing’s board of directors, a few months after leaving her position in the Trump administration. At that time, her net worth was less than $1 million. However, as reported by the New York Post, "Post her tenure, reports surfaced that Haley boosted her fortune eight-fold — to $8 million — after leaving the Trump administration.” Following this, Haley purchased a $2.4 million waterfront estate on Kiawah Island.
