Former President Donald Trump is not the only person battling for the Republican nomination in 2024: Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is also vying to carry the banner of the GOP into the general election.  

The two are the last candidates standing on the Republican side, and their fight comes as Trump is up against several historic indictments, one of which pertains to his alleged attempts to interfere with the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which resulted in the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Another involves his alleged mishandling of classified documents at his private Florida resort. He was also indicted in Georgia on charges related to his actions during the 2020 election. Beyond these criminal issues, Trump owes a total of about $600 million after massive financial penalties were levied against him in civil cases related to fraudulent business practices and defamation. With his competition, legal and financial woes in mind, how likely is Trump to win the 2024 nomination?
