(RoyalPatriot.com )-The Republican-In-Name-Only, Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney’s re-election possibility is tanking. She currently has only a 10% chance of winning her primary election on August 19, according to a report by CNN.
Cheney’s disapproval ratings within her own party have been more and more dismal. Cheney joined ten other Republicans in voting to impeach Donald Trump. Before voting to impeach, her disapproval rating was at 26%; after voting to impeach, her disapproval rating jumped to 72%.
While Democrats might extol Cheney as a “real” conservative for her role in Trump’s impeachment and as co-chair of the January 6 House select committee, Republicans do not share their sympathies. The days of liberal Republicans like Romney and McCain are over, despite however much favorable media coverage they might receive for their capitulation.
“If you look at the betting odds, whether or not she’ll win reelection, [there’s] only about a 10% chance she’ll win,” Political analyst Harry Enten said to Anderson Cooper during CNN’s AC360. Cooper noted how incredible that was given the “political dynasty” that Cheney is from.
Enten told Cooper that another Republican congressman from South Carolina who voted to impeach Trump, Tom Rice, lost his re-election to a Trump-endorsed candidate, Representative Russell Fry. That is a hefty victory for Trump, given that Rice was a five-term incumbent. The trend of Republicans voting out incumbents for those who are Trump-endorsed is indicative of Cheney’s future as we see her disapproval ratings widen.
Trump has repeatedly attacked Liz and her father, calling them “war criminals” for supporting the Iraq War. He touted that exactly what happened to Tom Rice will happen to her.
During the January 6 hearings, Republicans continued to gain a lead in the polls. Republicans held a lead of nine points in the Generic Congressional Ballot two weeks ago, according to a Rasmussen survey. The survey found that 48% of likely U.S. Voters said they would vote for a Republican, compared to 39% saying they would vote for a Democrat. That lead has recently narrowed down to only five points, 46%-41%.
