Balz: Haley Has the Mo(mentum)

Mostly I find Washington Post columnists biased, and most of those biased to the left. An exception is Dan Balz who, if he has a bias, keeps it well hidden. Today he writes about Nikki Haley's chances in becoming the main primary challenge to Trump. It is a column worth reading, see his conclusion.

To isolate Trump in a one-on-one contest, Haley will need a strong second in New Hampshire and the swift collapse of the rest of the field as the campaign moves to her home state of South Carolina. She might seem well-positioned to claim that status after the early states cast ballots, but the road ahead will be bumpy.

Note: Balz's WaPo column is echoed at and is thus not behind the WaPo paywall.
