GOP Presidential Candidate Nikki Haley Criticizes Republican Party's Failure To Connect With Diverse Voters: 'That's Nothing To Be Proud Of'

GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley criticized the Republican party’s lack of outreach to a diverse demographic.

What Happened: The former governor of South Carolina and ambassador to the United Nations, during an interview with “Daily Show” guest host Charlamagne Tha God, expressed disappointment over the Republican party’s performance in recent presidential elections, HuffPost reported.

“We’ve lost the last seven out of eight popular votes for president. That’s nothing to be proud of,” she stated.

She pointed out that the only Republican presidential candidate to win a majority of U.S. voters in the past eight elections was George W. Bush during his 2004 re-election.

Haley stressed the necessity for Republicans to “start talking to” minority groups, women, and younger voters to secure a majority win. “That’s how we win. We should want to win the majority of people, and I think that’s where the Republicans have gone wrong: They decide who can be in their club,” she added.

As per polls, Haley is currently third in the GOP primary race, trailing behind Donald Trump but gradually closing the gap with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is in second place.

Last month, Former Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX), who withdrew from the 2024 presidential race, endorsed Haley as a promising contender against Trump.
