Skip to comments.Poll: Liz Cheney’s Political Support Collapses in Wyoming as Primary Challenger Takes Double-Digit Lead

House GOP Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has seen her political support completely collapse in Wyoming as solid majorities of both Republicans and all voters in the state want her out of office, a new poll shows.
What’s more, Cheney has fallen behind her primary challenger by more than double digits, a sharp turn in just weeks against the one-time rising star since she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.
The poll, conducted by Trump’s team and first reported by Politico, shows 73 percent of Republicans in ruby red Wyoming view her unfavorably—while 62 percent of all voters in the state similarly view her unfavorably.
Only 10 percent of GOP voters, and 13 percent of all voters, say they would vote to reelect her, and she trails by more than 30 points—54 percent to 21 percent—against state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, who has announced a campaign against her since her impeachment vote.
The survey of 500 likely voters was conducted by Trump’s pollster John McLaughlin from Jan. 25 to Jan. 26, as revealed in a memo that McLaughlin wrote to Trump adviser Jason Miller.
“Liz Cheney’s decision to vote to impeach President Trump makes her extremely vulnerable,” McLaughlin wrote. “It is evident her ratings are in bad shape among general election voters and have collapsed among Republicans and Trump voters.”
Cheney has seen her fortunes crash not just in Wyoming—where at least one fellow U.S. House Republican, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), traveled to campaign against her—but in the U.S. House GOP conference as well.
As Breitbart News previously reported, more than half of the GOP conference have signed a petition saying they would vote on a secret ballot to oust her as chair. House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, meanwhile, has said he supports her staying in the position but

Godspeed to State Senator Anthony Bouchard!!!
Play stupid games......
I think it is people like her, who were responsible for whatzisname’s victory.
It is disgusting, how Bush and Cheney turned.
You can choke on your self-righteous scruples, soon the be former Congressman Cheney. Asshat
But Kevin McCarthy wants us to “knock it off” because “all this infighting is distracting from our usual kabuki theater of pretending to fight the Democrats”
Future MSNBC correspondent, Liz Cheney.
This is how the GOP is brought to its knees and reformed into what it should be.
This is what needs to happen. I hope they go scorched earth on the Never-Trumpers.
She’ll pack her carpetbag, move to another state and run for office.
A lot can happen over the remainder of 2021, but I would imagine as primary season comes around in the state....she’s finished. Some idiots in 2024 (considering the Republicans retake the Presidency) will probably push to give her a ambassador job somewhere.
It bothers me when someone relatively new to the scene shoots
their mouth off and are clueless while doing so.
She’s not all that, and never has been, but boy an she spout
One less of those folks on our side, is a great start.
“She’ll pack her carpetbag, move to another state and run for office.”
The DC swamp is her natural habitat.
Things are happening. The Capitol walk through. Reddit obliterating the short selling hedge funds. Cheney about to get wiped out. Mitch and McCarthy backtracking. Rubio getting a Trump kid challenge in the primary. Pipeline workers and Ute Indians coming out hard about the drilling and pipeline EO.
A month ago, I thought they were on an unstoppable roll.
Now I am starting to think they have awakened the sleeping giant. There is a vibe out there, one of common people moving in complete hatred against the “elites”.
She was born in Wisconsin, went to school in Colorado and Illinois. Spent years in DC. Wyoming was a stepping stone. She has lots of states to set up shop and call home.
People like Liz Cheney are so full of themselves and their own personal agenda/popularity contest issues/monetary gain that they forget entirely that they were elected to act on behalf of and speak for their constituents.
They are public servants, not public masters.
Just don’t flood the primary with a bunch more contenders to dilute the votes.
One GOOD challenger is all they need.
I loved the line a couple days ago from the wag who noted that Liz was continuing the grand family tradition of recklessly stumbling into an unwinnable war without an exit strategy.
