Contributing sentiments towards policy:

49% : Haley had ended her campaign nearly two months earlier, clearing the way for Donald Trump to become the Republican nominee in this year's race for the White House.
40% : The official wrote in Mitt Romney on his 2016 ballot before voting for Trump in 2020.
40% : Marshall Lerner, a 73-year-old retiree who until recently was involved in GOP politics in the area, also voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020, but backed Haley in the primary.
40% : But he added it was "hard . . . to imagine" he would vote for Trump a third time.
38% : Those swing voters could prove decisive in November, when Pennsylvania will be among the most hotly contested battleground states between Trump, the former president, and the current US president, Joe Biden.
34% : "The only vice-president that Trump could select that would get me to vote for him would be Nikki Haley," Lerner added.
33% : Bright, an elected Republican on his town's board of supervisors, voted for Trump in the previous two elections but said the former president's attempts to overturn the 2020 vote had been a "massive red flag".
29% : Haley herself has now said she will vote for Trump.
29% : "I think [Trump] is every bit the demagogue that his detractors make him out to be," the former official said.
28% : Despite being convicted on 34 criminal charges by a jury in New York last month, Trump has a narrow lead in most swing state polls, with the latest FiveThirtyEight average in Pennsylvania showing him on 42.7 per cent to Biden's 41 per cent, within the margin of error.
27% : "It seems unlikely Trump will pick Haley as his running mate -- an idea he publicly shot down when it was floated in news articles earlier this year.
20% : Even though many swing voters are critical of Trump, often citing his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and laundry list of legal troubles, they remain sceptical of Biden, with many questioning his age and mental fitness for office.
19% : Merritt said Trump lacks "moral fortitude", but added he "really held [his] nose" to vote for Biden in 2020.
19% : Still, it remains unclear how many of Haley's primary supporters will follow her lead and vote for Trump -- and how many will abandon the former president and hurt his chances at the ballot box.
18% : "Unfortunately, [Trump] has fooled enough people," Bright added.
17% : He said he would "absolutely" not vote for Trump again in 2024 -- but "probably" would not go for Biden, either.
14% : Biden defeated Trump there in 2020 by about 1 per cent, or roughly 80,000 votes -- about half of the Haley vote in this year's primary.
5% : "They think that one of the candidates, Joe Biden, is too old, and the other, Donald Trump, is too crazy and erratic.
