WYOMING – U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is floundering in her state for her anti-Trump stance in Washington. A poll today conducted by President Trump’s new PAC in Wyoming shows Cheney’s ratings dropping lower than the frigid winter temperatures in Wyoming.
“Yikes! Couldn’t have happened to a worse RINO According to the memo, 73 percent of Republican voters and 62 percent of all voters in Wyoming expressed an unfavorable view of the three-term congresswoman. Poll shows impeachment backlash hitting Cheney,” the younger Trump said today in reference to the former Vice President’s 2006 accidental hunting shooting of Harry Whittington.
“According to a memo outlining the results, 73 percent of Republican voters and 62 percent of all voters in Wyoming expressed an unfavorable view of the three-term congresswoman. Just 10 percent of Republican primary voters and 13 percent of general election voters said they would vote to reelect her. The survey of 500 likely voters, which was conducted Jan. 25-26 by Trump pollster John McLaughlin, also presents Cheney as profoundly weak in a Republican primary. The congress member trails 54 percent to 21 percent in a head-to-head matchup against one of her announced opponents, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard,” Politico reported today.
“Liz Cheney’s decision to vote to impeach President Trump makes her extremely vulnerable according to a Wyoming poll conducted among 500 likely general election voters. It is evident her ratings are in bad shape among general election voters and have collapsed among Republicans and Trump voters. The strong voter sentiment in this survey suggests there could be similar results for other Republicans who voted for impeachment,” said John McLaughlin of McLaughlin and Associates.
