It might not have come as much of a shock, but the decision of former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley to suspend her presidential campaign is nonetheless a major milestone in the current election season.

A Super Tuesday recap

Despite winning her second primary — Vermont — on Tuesday, it wasn’t enough for Haley’s campaign to justify remaining in the race. And her announcement the following day cleared the way for Donald Trump to secure his third straight GOP nomination.

On the Democratic side, President Joe Biden suffered his first loss — American Samoa — on Tuesday, but he emerged from Super Tuesday with the same expectation that he will be his party’s nominee in November’s general election.

So what will a likely rematch of the 2020 election mean for voters?

Identifying the big issues

Four years after Biden and Trump squared off four years ago, the oldest and second-oldest men to ever serve in the White House are both addressing concerns about their age.

Biden recently admitted to donors that he might not be “the gift of all presidents,” but he asserted that he is “sure in hell better than the last guy.

Meanwhile, Trump has been portraying Biden as out of touch and not truly “calling the shots” in his own administration, claiming that the “fascists and communists that surround him” are actually in control.

The jury’s still out (no pun intended) regarding how Trump’s legal issues will influence the election.

It’s all shaping up to be a close race filled with personal attacks flying in both directions. But voters will have to make a choice based on the issues they believe are the most important.

At this point, polls show that the economy, immigration, foreign policy, and abortion are among the biggest topics on the minds of voters.
