The Wall Street Journal: Trump Tightens Hold on GOP, Crowding Out Even Popular Rivals
“Donald Trump’s 20-point victory over Nikki Haley in South Carolina’s Republican primary not only shows the powerful hold that Trump commands over his party’s voters, but also the inability of any GOP leader to rally support against him as he moves to the brink of securing the presidential nomination.
Trump has now beaten Haley in her home state, for which she served as governor for six years, just weeks after defeating the chosen candidates of New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (who backed Haley) and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (who picked Ron DeSantis) in nominating contests in their states. Those outcomes show that while the governors remain popular, they have little power to persuade GOP voters to resist the gravitational pull that Trump exerts on his party, leaving him impervious to criticism and opposition from fellow Republicans.”
