A prominent member of the GOP just got double-crossed by a loyal ally

Betrayals aren’t uncommon in politics. But this one takes the cake.

And a prominent member of the GOP just got double-crossed by a loyal ally.

Donald Trump is projected to win the Republican nomination fairly easily.

His landslide victory in the Iowa caucus may be a sign of things to come as more primary voting contests occur.

The next state to vote in the GOP primary is New Hampshire, which Trump will likely win as well according to numerous polls.

But now one of rival candidate Nikki Haley’s allies is also coming out and projecting a Trump victory in the Granite State.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) is a strong supporter of Haley and her campaign. He offered his full endorsement to her late last year.

However, he has his doubts about her chances to beat Trump in his state’s primary.

“We always wanted to have a strong second. That’s the only expectation we ever laid out there,” Sununu said while speaking with ABC News last Wednesday.

Sununu’s comments strike a different tone than his previous comments about Haley’s chances.

“Nikki Haley can…give Trump that defeat that no one thought was possible in the next few weeks. And I think that’s very likely to happen,” Sununu said last December about the New Hampshire primary.

“Oh it’s an absolute win…If everyone that could vote in the primary comes out and votes, she’s going to win in a landslide,” he said that same month.

“I think she wins here in New Hampshire,” the governor said this year.

Haley has had a large base of the establishment to support her throughout her campaign.

Yet polls show that she is still struggling to catch Trump, specifically in New Hampshire.

According to a recent Suffolk/NBC-10/Boston Globe poll, Haley trails trump by 14 points in the Granite State.

“She is behind,” said Michale Biundo, a Republican strategist.

“And to cancel on debates, and to treat New Hampshire like it’s not the first in the nation and it’s just one of the Super Tuesday states – which is what she’s treating it like – I think is a huge mistake. We have a different way of thinking here.”
