A new poll released on Tuesday shows that if Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) were to run in the 2024 presidential race, she would sabotage the Democrats and secure former President Donald Trump (R) a second term in the White House.
Cheney, who has vowed that she will do “whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office,” has signaled that she would run for the presidency in 2024 in an attempt to take votes away from Trump.
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll finds the exact opposite, however. The poll found that in a three-way contest with Cheney as an independent, Trump would win in a landslide victory with an 8-point lead, 40 percent to 32 percent, over President Joe Biden.
Despite this, 30 percent of Democrats support a Cheney presidential run while 33 percent oppose it. In contrast, only 10 percent of Republicans support a Cheney run with 70 percent opposing.
Cheney would only secure 11 percent of the vote with a large majority of her voters being middle-of-the-road Democrats rather than conservatives. 21 percent of Biden supporters would vote for Cheney with an additional 15 percent saying they would be unsure on who to vote for if an independent Cheney were to run.
Meanwhile, only five percent of Trump supporters would approve of a Cheney ticket showcasing that the majority of her support comes from liberals who approve of her actions as vice chairwoman of the January 6 Committee and her betrayal of her conservative constituents in Wyoming.
This support for a Cheney bid by Democrats for the highest office in the land comes as the disgraced Republican has a 59 percent favorable rating among liberals whereas only 18 percent disapprove of her. It seems like the selling out of her constituents has made her some friends, however temporary, on the left side of the aisle.
If Cheney were to run in the Republican primary contest, however, she would only be able to secure six percent of the vote in a three-way contest between the former president, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
As Liz Cheney continues to destroy her political career, comparing herself to Abraham Lincoln in the process during her concession speech last week, her attempts to appease leftists have only backfired, and hopefully, she realizes that her chances at any political office are all but done for.
