The GOP establishment found their challenger to take on Donald Trump.
Fox News is even getting in on the act.
And Fox News double-crossed Trump with this endorsement of Nikki Haley.
Fox News eagerly promoted a poll out of New Hampshire by American Research Group showing RINO former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley trailing Donald Trump by just four points in the Granite State’s pivotal “first in the nation” January primary.
That poll was music to the ears of GOP elites like Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch who reportedly told Trump he could no longer support him for president.
Murdoch is a globalist who supports amnesty for illegal aliens and pumping endless amounts of taxpayer money into the corrupt sinkhole that is the war in Ukraine.
Nikki Haley is the perfect candidate for Murdoch and other establishment Republicans as Haley makes it clear she puts securing Ukraine’s border first and America last.
Haley drew her sharpest distinction with Trump over Trump’s opposition to funding the war in Ukraine while Haley believes in spending whatever it takes for as long as it takes.
During a campaign swing through New Hampshire, Haley told a crowd that she backs letting big business set unlimited levels of immigration into America.
Here is Nikki Haley calling for UNLIMITED immigration.

And Haley also reassures the socially liberal donor class by lecturing Republicans about the need to accept abortion on demand in America.
Needless to say, the co-hosts of “Fox and Friends” breathlessly reported the results of the American Research Group poll.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade – who agrees with Mitt Romney on foreign policy and attacked Trump’s America First doctrine in the past – could barely contain his glee in declaring the poll a “gut punch” for Donald Trump.
“This has had to feel somewhat of a gut punch for the former president of the United States. For the first time, we see a poll that Fox News supports. This is reputable and this is a first, I think the second major one since governor senator endorsed Governor Haley. That Governor Haley is within four points of Donald Trump in New Hampshire,” Kilmeade stated.
Trump reacted angrily to Fox News going all-in for Haley blasting the poll as fake and promising to share numbers from more reputable pollsters.
“FAKE NEW HAMPSHIRE POLL WAS RELEASED ON BIRDBRAIN. JUST ANOTHER SCAM! RATINGS CHALLENGED FOXNEWS WILL PLAY IT TO THE HILT. SUNUNU NOW ONE OF THE LEAST POPULAR GOVERNORS IN U.S,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
American Research Group earned a middling C+ rating from FiveThirtyEight.com.
UMass Lowell – a B+ rated pollster – found Trump leading Haley by 30 points in New Hampshire.

The GOP establishment wants nothing more than to ditch Trump and return to the days of swamp-friendly RINOs like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Liz Cheney calling the shots.
Republican Party donors could not come up with a candidate more from that mold than Nikki Haley.
And even Fox News is trying to boost her challenge to Trump.
