Liz Cheney Gets Shellacked in Newest Poll

Liz Cheney Gets Shellacked in Newest Poll

There’s only one month to go before Wyoming Republicans hold their primary, and the latest polls show that Rep. Liz Cheney is taking a beating. How much, you ask? Well, Liz is running 22 points behind her opponent, Harriet Hageman.

That’s gonna leave a mark.

 

The Poll, Explained

Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy conducted this first, independent poll for the Wyoming newspaper Casper Star-Tribune. They surveyed 1,100 Wyoming residents who are likely to participate in the primary from July 7 through 11 — right after early voting began in the state. The poll also gives a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.

And the result? Harriet Hageman, a natural resources attorney, is shellacking Liz Cheney at 52% to 30%. As Brad Coker, Mason-Dixon managing director, said:

“The big story is Liz Cheney is going to get beat. That’s a foregone conclusion.”

Even a betting market, PredictIt, favors Hageman over Cheney by 93 cents on the dollar.

However, Wyoming is one of the most conservative states in the nation. Plus, Cheney has handily defeated opponents in past primaries. So what gives?

Simply, it’s because Liz Cheney is obsessed with destroying former president Donald Trump. She hates him with the heat of a thousand suns, so much that she voted to impeach him after the January 6 Capitol riots. She calls Trump a threat to democracy and the rule of law. And now she sits as one of two Republicans whom Nancy Pelosi has allowed on the January 6 Show Trial Committee as token members of the, ahem, “opposing party.”

But Cheney just can’t quit Trump. Even during a debate between her and Harriet Hageman, her primary rival, Cheney kept harping on Trump.

But Liz Cheney has paid the price. As a result of her anti-Trump mania, the Wyoming Republican Party no longer recognizes her as a member of the GOP. Plus, among those polled by Mason-Dixon, only 27% approve of her job performance.

Yet Cheney is gaining traction among Democrats: she now has a 53% approval rating among Wyoming Democrats who plan to vote in the state’s primary. What a surprise.

 

Why They Hate Liz Cheney in Wyoming

How much do Wyoming Republicans hate Liz Cheney? Let me count the ways.

First of all, they call her a “carpetbagger,” since she only moved to the state in 2012. Plus, they claim she rarely visits, instead preferring to spend her time in Washington, DC. They also say she’s a “Republican In Name Only;” as one 42-year resident of Wyoming called her, “Ninety-nine point nine percent pure RINO.”

Cheney’s opponent Harriet Hageman also says that Cheney is too focused on Donald Trump to properly serve the people of Wyoming.

Moreover, to paraphrase former Bill Clinton adviser James Carville — It’s the inflation, stupid! 

I reached out to a Republican friend from Wyoming for her take on Liz Cheney. She had words. Boy, did she have words, beginning with “She’s only visible with the January 6 crap.”

It went on from there:

“Inflation ALWAYS hits WY folks harder and more immediately than a great deal of other places in the country (West VA and other coal/oil states being the exception). Yet all she fucking does is blather on about the Constitution and Jan 6. Furthermore, she’s done very little to try and stop Biden from draining SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) and has not much to say about Biden going begging …”

“And, due to inflation and the drought, farmers and ranchers are making tough decisions as to how much water to use, fertilizer (if they can get any without breaking the bank), and how much harvest they’ll actually have. But it’s all about January 6! Very little about the very real issues WY is dealing with right now.”

No wonder they hate Liz Cheney in Wyoming.

 

Who Supports Liz Cheney? Big Donor Democrats

Liz Cheney is relying on the kindness of strangers — the Democrat kind — to win in next month’s primary. And many with money to burn don’t agree with Cheney on a host of social issues, yet because they also loathe Donald Trump they’re shoveling money her way.

Like film producer Jeffrey Katzenberg, for example, who said that Liz Cheney “put her country over party and politics to stand in defense of our Constitution.”

Barf.

Then there’s also Reid Hoffman, the LinkedIn founder, who is supporting Cheney, as well as Jane Fraser, CEO of Citigroup. Hoffman also gushed over Cheney:

“Liz Cheney demonstrates incredible integrity, standing for America.”

Do you think that the ranchers and small-town folks in Wyoming will give a rat’s tuchus about the support these elites have for Liz Cheney? Not on your life.

 

About Cheney’s Love for the Constitution …

Look, I get that Liz Cheney has no love lost for Donald Trump. There are a lot of GOP members who also wish he’d just go away, even though it looks likely that he’ll declare his candidacy for 2024 soon. Many of us would rather see another candidate as our standard bearer.

But if Trump wins the nomination I will vote for Trump because I believe that he and the GOP best serve the nation. The Democrats? Not so much. Look how members of that party are trying to undermine the Supreme Court, the third branch of government, for example. And yet Liz Cheney waxes ad infinitum about the rule of law and the Constitution.

If Cheney doesn’t want to support Trump in 2024, fine. Then she should work within the party to support another candidate. Not throw the rest of her party to the wolves because of her obsessive hate of one man. This isn’t a Mafia movie, and the enemy of her enemy is not her friend.

But it’s too late for Liz Cheney. Come August 16, she’ll lose — and lose big time — to Harriet Hageman, the next Congresswoman from Wyoming.

  • But if Trump wins the nomination I will vote for Trump because I believe that he and the GOP best serve the nation.

    There is another reason to vote for him, even over DeSantis (whom I will support if he is the GOP nominee) or another sound candidate:

    We have to prove to ourselves that we can consistently elect leaders who possess the resolve and reliability to institute policies that respect and protect individual liberty … even if that means he/she doesn’t check all the boxes of sainthood, and/or has to be uncivil and obnoxious to do so in the face of the professional/political complex … instead of electing some Nice Person™ we won’t have to explain to our neighbors, but will not advance our rights over top of the complex.

    Electing Trump is a test of our priorities – and our ability to actually be nice to our neighbors, instead of acting civil when their rights are trampled right along with ours.

    • Electing leaders that respect and protect individual liberty, is how you render the Liz Cheney’s among us irrelevant.

    • Fen says:

      Exactly. I would only add one thing – if we want to recruit the kind of leaders who (like the Founding Fathers) are willing to risk their fortunes, their families, and their very lives to save this Republic…then we need to prove we will not abandon them after the media demonizes them to make their name toxic.

      Trump kept faith with us. For that sin, the Left wants to destroy him, murder his son, and do even worse to his wife and daughter.

      If we turn away from him for the next Flavor Of The Month, it’s over for us, we are done – we will never get another Reagan or Trump to endure the Left’s punishment for standing up for us.

      Instead, we’ll get Romneys and McCains all the way down. Betrayal after betrayal after betrayal. A constant reminder that we’re getting what we deserve for breaking faith with the first leader since Reagan that earned our loyalty. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live the rest of my days with that Mark.

      The so-called thought leaders who think they are viewing this with Realpolitik Lenses when they favor DeSantis aren’t seeing that far out, but it’s a simple formula: if you want Loyalty you need to be Loyal.

    Let’s not count our chickens…

    Pretty clear the GOP voters of WY really don’t like the Cheney they’ve been seeing the last 4 yrs or so. But she’s slippery. Don’t know the details/specifics of WY election law, but I’m pretty sure she does.

    1) Wouldn’t shock me if she found a way to press on after losing the GOP primary and get her name on the Nov ballot as a 3rd party/independent candidate. She might have a chance in a 3-way race…

    2) Even in deep Red WY, it wouldn’t shock me if the primary and/or election counting could be …ahhh. adjusted to her favor on election night. Everyone needs to be vigilant and aggressive/in your face. Insiders WILL cheat if they think they can get away with it. Just need to take actions before/during/after to insure they CAN’T.

    Extreme TRANSPARENCY. VIDEO OF EVERYTHING. Legally Monitor ip connections.

    If legal in your jurisdiction monitor all the ip addresses in the voting area.

    You could also have a situation where the Democratic party replaces their candidate with Cheney…

  • Blackwing1 says:

    I cannot speak for the rest of Wyoming, but at least for my little town in the northwest corner of the state, 100% of the (soi disant “local”) support comes from the upper echelons of our town and surrounding area. In the past two weeks campaign signs for both Cheney (national) and Newsome (state) have been sprouting like poisonous mushrooms, but only in the isolated upper-crust neighborhoods of $1.5 – $2.5 million dollar homes and “ranches”. A quick trip up one of the river valleys shows the small working ranches with Hageman and Webber signs, and the huge multi-million-dollar “vacation spreads” with Cheney signs.

    There is literally NO ONE I have talked to that actually works for a living (as opposed to being a trustafarian or red-diaper inheritance twit) who supports Cheney…not one. Many of the larger established businesses will support Cheney for reasons I don’t clearly understand; perhaps she has greased enough wheels to garner support from the GOPers.

    But the single most perverse thing that has gone on here is that she and her campaign have encouraged, underwritten, and provided concise detailed instructions on how voters currently registered as Dem-wingers can change their registration in time for the Republican primary to be eligible to vote in it, hoping to swing the primary election enough to retain her tenuous grasp on political power. Let me be clear; this is NOT criminal activity in WY, and under the law she is neither inciting vote fraud or “insurrection/sedition” by doing so, nor would any of the voters be violating the law by switching their registration, casting a primary vote for her, and then switching back to “communist” when they’re done.

    What it IS, is ethically and morally wrong and evil. So is Cheney.

    The name of the office for which she is seeking re-election should be a clue as to the performance of the person in that office; it’s the “House of Representatives”, not the “House of Personal Aggrandizement”, and Liz Cheney has utterly and completely betrayed the trust that the people of Wyoming had put in her by voting her into that office. Her failure to represent the wishes and will of the people of Wyoming, in order to further her own personal Trump-hating/fearing agenda is why she should be the tame RINO on MSNBC, PBS, NPR and the rest of the alphabet-soup lame-stream propaganda ecosystem rather than pretending to represent the people of Wyoming.

    My fear is that her primary vote fraud will work, and that she will have enough support from the deep-pocket Dem-wingers to succeed.

    When the Jan 6 farce is over, the only person guaranteed to never hold office again will be — Liz Cheney. Smart play Liz!

    (even Adam Kizinger could have a chance if switched parties)

  • Steve Crane says:

    Yesterday she visited the Wind River Indian Reservation. She’s asking Democrats to switch parties and vote for her (Wyo allows party-switching up to primary day, so it’s functionally an open primary state). Lynnette GreyBull – one of three Dems vying for a shot at the House, and an Indian – can’t be happy about Liz wooing her potential voters.

    There’s a Constitution Party candidate too, Marisa Selvig. If Cheney somehow wins the primary, Selvig will get a lot of votes in November.

  • […] THAT is the only thing that matters to any and all Americans these days. Liz Cheney is staking her political career on it. However, poll after poll shows that the Biden Administration’s economy killing agenda […]

  • […] Let’s talk about that for a second. WHO has actually been running the whole January 6 show from the beginning?? Helloooooo Liz Cheney!  […]
