Donald Trump was stunned in the primary when a substantial number of Republicans cast their ballots against him

Donald Trump speaks to guests at a rally on April 02, 2024 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Large numbers of Republicans didn't vote for the former president in Republican primaries on Tuesday.

Tuesday marked a setback for Donald Trump in a number of primary elections, as thousands of Republicans abstained from casting ballots in his favor.
The former president is the presumed Republican nominee for the 2024 presidential election, having secured the nomination with sufficient delegates last month and with the elimination of all of his competitors.
Nevertheless, this has not appeased moderate Republicans and supporters of his opponents, such as Nikki Haley (who withdrew from the race last month), who have vowed never to support Trump.

Consequently, despite the fact that Trump won four primary votes on Tuesday with relative ease—in Wisconsin, Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island—it is noteworthy that a percentage of Republicans in each of those states voted for candidates who are no longer in the race, indicating that anti-Trump sentiment is still prevalent within the GOP. In battleground states, where the Republican will face Democratic candidate Joe Biden in November, this dissent may prove challenging.

NBC News reports that in Wisconsin, Trump received 78.9 percent of the vote, while Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, received 12.8 percent and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis received 3.3 percent.
The former president received 77.8 percent of the vote in Connecticut. A total of 14% opted to attend Haley, with an additional 4.8 percent expressing lack of commitment.
Additionally, Trump suffered a 20 percent loss in New York, where he received 82.1 percent of the vote compared to Haley’s 12.9 percent.

He secured a majority of 83.7 percent of the vote in Rhode Island, with Haley receiving 10.6 percent of the vote.
An email was sent to a Trump representative by Newsweek requesting comment on this article.
The outcomes on Tuesday follow a similar sting that Trump received in Florida one month ago. In the state primary, the former president received 81.2% of the vote, a decrease from 2020, when he received approximately 94% of the vote.

Scott Lucas, an International Politics professor at University College Dublin, previously told Newsweek that Haley and her supporters may not change their allegiance to Trump due to the extreme division within the Republican Party.

He stated, “Nikki Haley remained in the race for Super Tuesday not because she believed she could win, but because a large number of Republican members and Republican donors are extremely uneasy about Donald Trump.” His legal issues, his unpredictability, and the damage he can inflict on domestic and foreign policy all contribute to their extreme unease.Milwaukee will host the Republican National Convention in July, where Trump will be sworn in as the nominee for 2024.
