Republican 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley said she is confident she can defeat former President Donald Trump.

Speaking with Fox News after a town hall event in New Hampshire, Haley said her strategy of personally meeting with voters has the potential to carry her to victory against the GOP front-runner. The former U.N. ambassador is trailing far behind in the polls. The RealClearPolitics average has her at just 5.2%.

“When you look at the situation that we have, President Trump has 25% of Republicans. It’s a hard 25%. They are Trump or no one,” she told Fox News. “There are 75% other Republicans there that are looking for a place to be.”

“I am not going to focus on doing big rallies. … You have to go and answer the hard questions. You have to go face to face. You can’t fly in and fly out. I believe the American people want you to earn their vote,” she said, apparently referring to Trump.

Haley emphasized her personal strategy of individually meeting with voters and being seen in the community.

“You’ll get tired of seeing me, but it’s because I want you to go tell your friends and family, ‘I heard her at the next town hall. You need to go.’ And let me tell them. And let me earn their support,” she said. “We’re going touch hands over and over again. And I’m doing the same thing in Iowa, and I’m doing the same thing in South Carolina.”

She also boasted about her “good” fundraising, saying her campaign has a lot of momentum.

Haley is trailing far behind Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) as the Republican favorite despite being the second candidate to declare their candidacy. She is slated to visit the U.S.-Mexico border in April to discuss her planned immigration policy.
