Cheney dominated by Trump endorsed GOP primary challenger in new poll

According to a new report from DailyMail “Another congressional term for Liz Cheney is looking less and less likely as Republicans in her home state of Wyoming continue to turn on her after she voted to impeach Donald Trump and joined the Democrat-led select committee probing the January 6 Capitol attack.”

DailyMail reports:

Just 28 percent of Wyoming Republican voters say they would cast a ballot to reelect Cheney in the 2022 midterms, according to a new poll from Fabrizio, Lee & Associates survey and consulting firm.

The survey of 400 likely Republican primary voters in the deep red state shows that 56 percent would vote for Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman over the incumbent if the election were held today.

The 28 points that divide them falls well outside the 4.9 percent margin of error for the poll taken June 1 and 2 that was released this week.

Even less respondents had a favorable view of their current at-large congresswoman in the U.S. House of Representative – with just 26 viewing her favorably and a whopping 73 percent having an unfavorable opinion of Cheney.

When likely GOP voters were specifically asked about their favorability of the job Cheney has done as a congresswoman, 27 percent were favorable and 70 unfavorable.

Cheney is one of the two Republicans – along with Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger – serving on the House select committee probing the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The betting market of PredictIt, is also ominous for Cheney, with a large majority believing Harriet Hageman will take her seat.
