The results of the Republican Party primaries in New Hampshire, this Tuesday (23), confirmed Donald Trump’s favoritism. Even though his advantage over Nikki Haley was smaller than expected, the situation increased the pressure for her to perform better in the next rounds, in order to prove herself a viable option.
The former US ambassador to the UN has tried to appear more moderate than Trump and criticized his opponent’s legal situation and even his health conditions. One of the next Republican primaries will be in South Carolina, a state previously governed by Haley; Even there, polls indicate broad favoritism for the former president.
On the Democratic side, Joe Biden won in New Hampshire without being on the ballot — the vote was carried out without regard to the party leadership. The party’s primaries begin in earnest on the 3rd. Even pressured by low popularity, the president has no competitive internal rival and uses the rallies to reinforce his early campaign against Trump.
This Thursday’s Café da Manhã (25) hears from Fernanda Perrin, correspondent for Sheet in the United States, about this situation in the American election. She discusses Trump’s favoritism in the Republican Party and analyzes the new and repeated contours of polarization.
