McLaughlin to Newsmax: Should Trump Have Haley as an Ally? Too Early to Tell

It’s too early to tell whether Donald Trump should build a coalition with former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley or keep her far from his campaign since she’s actively running to win the Republican primary, says veteran pollster and strategic consultant John McLaughlin.

“It’s too early right now because she’s an active candidate in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire,” McLaughlin said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax‘s “The Chris Salcedo Show.”

“Those who know her record, like in South Carolina … they basically vote 2 to 1 for Donald Trump, so she’s actively running to win this. This week her super PAC spent $5 million in Iowa and New Hampshire versus our super PAC of $1 million, so it’s really hard to take her seriously if she’s running for vice president or trying to ambush us,” he added.
