Politico reported:
Donald Trump is getting clear advice from a significant number of Hill Republicans, and even some MAGA loyalists: Choose a running mate who can attract more cautious Republican voters from the center-right.

Some of them even want him to consider a rival he has publicly ruled out, Nikki Haley — who recently revealed she would vote for him. And if Haley can’t pull off an unlikely comeback, many Republican lawmakers want Trump to choose one of two other former opponents with similar stature outside of MAGA: Sens. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) or Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

The Republicans argue that people are still voting for Haley, so Trump should choose her. The problem is that about 20% of Republicans are voting for Haley because they don’t like Trump. Nikki Haley does not have a large fan base in the Republican Party. Haley is a protest voice. If a turnip turned against Trump, the turnip would get about 20% of the Republican primary vote.

Haley, Scott or Rubio are not the answer that will make Trump acceptable to the majority of the country. Republicans in Congress have learned little, so they are repeating the same mistakes they have been making for years that could cost them the November election.
