Liz Cheney is 28 POINTS behind her GOP primary opponent, Harriet Hageman: 70% of Wyoming Republican Rep’s voters see her unfavorably as she faces an uphill battle to keep her seat

  • The 28% margin shows GOP voters in the state are increasingly turning against Cheney

Another congressional term for Liz Cheney seems less and less likely as Republicans in her home state of Wyoming continue to turn against her after she voted to impeach Donald Trump and join the Democrat-led select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. .

Only 28 percent of Republican voters in Wyoming say they would cast a vote to re-elect Cheney in the 2022 midterm elections, according to a new poll from research and consultancy firm Fabrizio, Lee & Associates.

The survey of 400 likely Republican primary voters in the scarlet state shows that 56 percent would vote for Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman rather than the incumbent if the election were held today.

The 28 points dividing them are well outside the 4.9 percent margin of error for the June 1 and 2 poll released this week.

Even fewer respondents had a positive view of their current congressman in the US House of Representatives — just 26 respondents favored her and a whopping 73 percent had an unfavorable opinion of Cheney.

When likely GOP voters were asked specifically about their preference for the job Cheney has done as a congressman, 27 percent were in favor and 70 were unfavorable.

Cheney is one of two Republicans — along with Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger — to serve on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

That panel post created by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as her vote to impeach Trump, cost Cheney the favor of her voters, a disapproval from the Wyoming GOP and Republican National Committee (RNC), as well as her No. 3 post in the party as chairman of the House Republican Conference.

Wyoming is the most Republican state in the US, according to the Cook Partisan Voting Index, which places the western state at +25 Republican — more than any other state.

Cheney’s former stronghold has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1952 — except for the 1964 election.

The poll also shows that 70% of likely Republican voters in Wyoming have an unfavorable view of how Cheney serves in Congress.  Pictured: Cheney along with the only other Republican on the January 6 select committee, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois

In the most recent presidential contest in 2020, 69.9 percent voted for Trump’s re-election compared to just 26.6 percent who voted for current President Joe Biden. It was a slight drop in margins from the 2016 presidential election, where Trump won the scarlet state with a 46 percent lead over Hillary Clinton.

Trump recruited and supported Hageman against Cheney.

Hageman’s support has grown dramatically since the December poll, which came three months after Trump approved the Cheney challenger.

The bump comes after Trump went to Wyoming in late May to gather for Hageman in Casper.

In December, Hageman was just 8 percent ahead of Cheney — 34 percent to 26 percent. That difference increased by 20 percent in six months.

Support for a third candidate, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard, has fallen from 13 percent support in December to just 8 percent now.

An earlier primary poll by the Wyoming GOP of WPAi/Club for Growth PAC showed Cheney was 30 percent behind Hagement — two percentage points more than the new poll resulted.
