Elections may have consequences, but so does support for a sham, blatantly partisan impeachment of a President of your own party who is no longer in office.
It looks like Wyoming voters are not very happy with Rep. Liz Cheney. Here popularity is in the toilet according to a new poll.
The poll was paid for by the newly formed Trump PAC, Save America, and it shows that support for Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney is down significantly. Rep. Cheney is one of the top-ranking Republicans in Congress and is the daughter of former Vice President and neo-conservative, Dick Cheney.
The poll found that her popularity is at a new low with barely double-digits saying that they would vote to re-elect her. She’s also going to be facing some primary challengers.
The survey paints a bleak picture of Cheney’s political standing as she faces fierce backlash from Trump supporters over her impeachment vote, with House conservatives mounting an effort to oust her from party leadership, the Wyoming Republican Party condemning her, and primary challengers lining up.
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.
“Liz Cheney’s decision to vote to impeach President Trump makes her extremely vulnerable,” McLaughlin writes to Jason Miller, the former president’s senior adviser, in a memo outlining the results. “It is evident her ratings are in bad shape among general election voters and have collapsed among Republicans and Trump voters.”
It seems that Rep. Cheney is taking it all in stride and figures it’ll all blow over… or at least she’s careful to not show that she’s actually panicking during the interviews.
Here she is on Fox News speaking with Dana Perino and Bill Hemmer about the backlash she’s facing.
Somehow I don’t think it’s going to blow over.
Donald John Trump had 75 million voters cast their ballot for him.
And this kept happening when he held his rallies:
