Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is in major danger of losing her House seat in this August’s GOP primary, as her opponent Harriet Hageman appears to be headed for victory at the ballot box, according to The Casper Star Tribune,
The polling was conducted to examine Cheney’s overall popularity and gather data on which Wyominans would be most likely to vote for.
Voters were asked, “If today were the Republican Primaries, Who Would You Vote For?”
According to the numbers, Hariett Hageman is likely to receive 52 percent of the vote, while Cheney is currently only getting 32 percent. The remaining votes are divided up amongst lesser-known candidates.
DC Enquirer reported back in February about Former President Donald Trump endorsing Hageman over Cheney saying, “I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican Liz Cheney.”
Hageman has aligned herself with the MAGA movement, unlike Cheney who has been branded a “RINO” in many major Republican circles.
While the daughter of the former Vice President has spent her time and energy focusing on the “bi-partisan” January 6th committee, Hageman has been running a campaign based on America First principles such as protecting human life, securing the southern border, defending the Second Amendment, and restoring election integrity.
While poll numbers are looking unfavorable for Cheney in her home state, it looks as though she may be focused more on her national image.

In an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, he asked Cheney about a possible presidential run and she said, “I haven’t made a decision about that yet. And I’m obviously very focused on my re-election. I’m very focused on the January 6th committee. I’m very focused on my obligations to do the job that I have now.”
Come August, she will likely no longer be a factor in Wyoming politics and her chances of competing against America First candidates like Donald Trump or popular Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are low, at best.
With the primary fast approaching, Hageman took to Twitter to say, “I promise to always be a champion for the people of Wyoming. As a fourth-generation Wyomingite, I know what we need to be successful. Spread the word and tell your family, friends, and neighbors to get out and vote between now and August 16th, so we can finally put Wyoming First.”
It will be clear which direction Wyoming voters are heading following the primary, however, it looks clear from the numbers that RINO GOP members won’t be leading the party any time soon.
