Poll shows support for Rep. Cheney plummeting in Wyoming amid backlash over her vote to impeach

Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) political fortunes are taking a turn for the worse in the weeks since her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump — and she may even be facing removal from office.

The Republican’s poll numbers are tanking in Wyoming, according to Breitbart, as a primary threat develops.

Cheney on the chopping block?

It all comes after Cheney was the leader of 10 House Republicans who joined Democrats to impeach Trump over the Jan. 6 “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol.

Weeks later, the impeachment is faltering in the Senate, with all but five Republican senators calling it unconstitutional as backlash grows against those 10 Republicans in the House, especially Cheney.

A new poll commissioned by Donald Trump’s Save America PAC underscores Cheney’s woes, as Politico reports. She is trailing a potential primary opponent, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, by a margin of double digits, 21% to 54%.

What’s more, roughly 73% of Wyoming Republicans, and 62% of all the state’s voters, view Cheney unfavorably, according to Breitbart, and only 10% of GOP voters, and 13% of all votes, would re-elect her.

“Liz Cheney’s decision to vote to impeach President Trump makes her extremely vulnerable,” Trump pollster John McLaughlin wrote, according to Breitbart. “It is evident her ratings are in bad shape among general election voters and have collapsed among Republicans and Trump voters.”

Anti-Trump Republicans face backlash

Cheney called Trump a traitor in no uncertain terms: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath to the constitution,” she said, according to Politico.

But Trump remains popular with the Republican base, and signs of his continued influence are plentiful, with Cheney receiving a harsh rebuke from the Wyoming GOP as House Republicans continue calls to boot her from leadership. More than half have suggested they would support the move, Breitbart notes.

The controversy is the focal point of a wider fight over the GOP’s future and Trump’s role in it, with establishment Republicans battling for control with Trump’s populist base. From his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Trump is said to be lobbying for revenge against Republicans who have turned on him.

One of his strongest supporters in Congress, stalwart “America First” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), stuck closely to the MAGA playbook at a rally in Wyoming’s capital of Cheyenne on Thursday, where he attacked Cheney as a sellout for the globalist establishment.

“Our battle is no longer just Republican vs. Democrat, it’s not just red team versus blue team. Absolutely not — we’ve got to put America first,” he said, according to The Hill.

  1. That traitor Cheney needs booted out of the House and the Republican Party! She is worse than Peelosi!! At least we know Peelosi is a no good Communist Cheney is a backdoor Peelosi!!! Also all the traitor RINO’S need the boot to like Romney McConnell McCarthy and a host of other on the take rino goons. Every Republican who votes against the Second and First Amendment’s need to be to be voted OUT! Including ole turncoat RED FLAG signing then Governor of Florida and now Senator RICK SCOTT. With Republicans like him we do NOT need any Democrats to take away the rights of citizens!!!!

    1. B. you said it right. Only left out some of the most important demorats should have been added to your list.
      Most of the “BAT” ones are the ones that coach some of the Republicians.
      I think both houses needs a through cleaning.

  3. All the RINOS.
    Every single one.
    I can respect the Democrat Communists for telling me what they were going to do to me and my Country and then doing it but I have NO Respect for RINOS that stabbed the President in the back after he helped them get elected with the promise they would back him.

  4. Seems like there was a past disagreement between the Cheney’s and President Trump. This was a get even vendetta and it has not turner out well for her.

  5. All you republicans who voted against Trump should leave your office. There is no grounds to impeach Trump. After what Harris did and you did nothing. And there is moe names WATERS , PELOSI ,AOC. Many of the things they have done or said should put them in the impeachment line. But yet you did nothing. So in the next Elections , good chance you will be gone. You need to mend your ways. You need to fight as a Republican and for what the American people want. The Democrats did not have anything to impeach Trump for the first time and they do not have anything this time.

    1. Please, don’t forget Swalwell, traitor our country by sleeping with Fang Fang. He keeps talking about Trump, I can see why, he is trying to keep everyone away from him. He calls Trump a traitor, what nerve he has. He is so guilty he can’t even see straight.

  6. Pat Toomey has never been a real(or true) republican. Watched him stab the GOP in the back, every chance he had since he was first elected! @ the last election, he won re-election against a little known newcomer by 2.5% points. He was never a popular senator Pa., a RINO right from the beginning of his first term! Should have ran as a democrat from the start. Now, knowing he will not be reelected, he has decided to step down and not run again. I say good riddance, and BYE-BYE!!!!

  7. This congresswoman could not wait until she read what actually the President said, and went ahead to try to impeach because she hates him. Get this rino out!

  8. I was a long-term resident of Wyoming in the Jackson Hole area where I owned a ranch, and Cheney needs to leave her position and WYOMING. We do not need a traitor like her in our state. We have always been very conservative with the small populous in our state. WE like it that way. That is why so many people with money move to Wyoming. Move to California where you would fit right in with the rest of your kind……….And all of you can root in your psycho-cultural retardation!

  9. Liz, you’re an attorney….at least that is what we have been told. Whatever happened to the phrase, which should be sacred to attorneys, ‘INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY’ ? Liz, you said “There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath to the constitution,” . Besides not waiting for all of the FACTS to come in, shouldn’t you keep your mouth shut until it has been tried in a court of law? Is what you said not a violation of your attorney oath – (if there is one) ? The gravity of your attorney conduct is so egregious that your attorney license and diploma should be revoked.

  10. Was she really that stupid & didn’t know her state liked Trump & supported him, then to call him a trader & support the Democrat traders on impeachment! Has she seen what the Democrats are trying to do to the USA. Sorry but that is one of the stupidest move I’ve seen!

  11. DC is so corrupt and the communists now control the deep state the slime balls like Cheney think they will benefit from staying in office. The fraudulent vote we just experienced will forever keep the communists in office. Even the stupid democrats will suffer as the communists apply their control on the nation. I don’t see any option but revolution as they destroy the Constitution. GIve us liberty or ?

  12. Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours require a large amount of work?

    I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it! https://parbriz-auto-bucuresti.ro/parbriz-citroen-jumper.html
