The State released its newest presidential candidate power rankings by seven political observers including Furman University’s Danielle Vinson, an alumna and professor of politics and international affairs. The newspaper asked the experts to rank their top five candidates according to who they believe would have the best chance to win the South Carolina Republican presidential primary if it were held today. Vinson commented on Nikki Haley who moved into the No. 2 spot. “Haley … handled the debate with aplomb and demonstrated competence with a range of issues and behaved in a way that suburban women tired of chaos may appreciate,” she said.
