Introduction

Playstyle
Nikki Haley is a powerful speaker for the Establishment wing, and has the deadly characteristics to back it up. Will her electability put her across the finish line?
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Engaging Charisma: Nikki's charisma will be a significant attribute on the campaign trail, spending just enough stamina to get a speech out, while being able to tantalize crowds in the process.
  • Media Likability: The media has done Nikki Haley many favors, bringing her establishment rhetoric well in the line of Republican nostalgia in chaotic times. With this - she can capitalize on her likability factor by only needing to spend 3 stamina points to create an ad.
  • Good Positioning: Starting in South Carolina will be a boon for Nikki in primary gameplans, and furthermore, she has relatively broad issue scores to put moderate voters within reach in northern states. Depending on the match-up she will have multiple paths to victories due to her broad appeal.
  • Vulnerable Start: While Nikki Haley has little in the way of weaknesses, her funds will detract her from getting up and running, but without the above-average stamina to make it up. Meaning she will be position-prone for a fight to the long haul. Furthermore her broad appeal to moderates could gradually cost her in otherwise lean-R states.

  • Up to 12 movements in a single turn.
