Trump also won against Haley in his home state of South Carolina

With 95 percent of the votes counted, Trump has 60 percent and Haley has more than 39 percent. This means the home candidate has fared slightly better than the polls predicted – giving him a third of the vote. However, Trump called the results “bigger than expected” in his victory speech. “I've never seen the Republican Party as it is today,” he told a roomful of supporters.

Haley, 52, served as South Carolina's governor from 2011 to 2017. He remains Trump's only serious opponent in the race, but has yet to pull off a single win in the four primaries that have already taken place. Even when Trump was not on the ballot in Nevada, more voters chose the “none of these candidates” option than Haley.

With primaries still to follow in several states, it's clear that Haley's chances are now doomed. Nevertheless, the former UN The ambassador reiterated his desire to stay in the tournament until Super Tuesday, March 5. ‚ÄúThis is not about my political future. We have to beat Joe Biden in November. I don't think Donald Trump can do that,” he said, adding that the room erupted at Trump's name. He also pointed out that he received about 40 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary. “This is not a small group. Our story does not end today.

Elections will be held in Michigan on Tuesday, followed by Idaho, Missouri and North Dakota. Fifteen states, including Texas and California, have primaries on Super Tuesday.
