The current focal point in U.S. politics is the 2024 presidential primaries, with the next presidential election scheduled for November 5th of the following year. The Republican Party will commence its presidential candidate primaries with the Iowa Caucus on the 15th of the upcoming month, followed by the New Hampshire primary on the 23rd of the same month, and the South Carolina primary on February 3rd.
Trump holds the lead in these crucial early states, with Haley closely trailing. Trump enjoys strong support from the Republican base, while Haley’s strength lies in her appeal to moderates. In New Hampshire, a state known for its large share of moderate voters, Haley is narrowing the gap with Trump.
