Poll: Liz Cheney Sinks 30 Points Behind Trump-Endorsed Harriet Hageman in WY GOP Primary

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has sunk 30 points behind Donald Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman in the Wyoming GOP primary, a Club for Growth poll found Thursday.

Hageman garnered 56 percent support, while Cheney only earned 26 percent, a 30 percent difference.

The poll was conducted with 400 likely Republican primary voters in Wyoming from May 24-25. The margin of error is +4.9 percent.

A January straw poll revealed Hageman held a commanding lead over Cheney. The poll, conducted by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee via secret ballot, showed Hageman won 59 votes and Cheney six, a 53-point victory by Hageman.

The new polling data comes after Donald Trump announced he would hold a rally for Hageman on Saturday at 4 p.m. in Casper, Wyoming. Trump and Hageman will be joined at the rally by Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Lauren Boebert (R-CO). House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) will also make video appearances.

Trump’s appearance in Wyoming is likely to give Hageman an extra booster against Cheney, who has allied herself with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 committee and reportedly “orchestrated unprecedented” GOP sabotage by generating a Republican hit piece in the Washington Post.

Cheney has also benefited from a Democrat-linked public relations firm encouraging Democrats to vote in the open Republican primary. The public relations firm has worked for President Joe Biden’s campaign arm, Planned Parenthood, and Black Lives Matter in the past.

Cheney’s antics caused the Republican caucus to oust Cheney with a vote of no confidence in May of 2021. In November, the Wyoming GOP voted to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican, though Cheney has continued to call herself one.

In February, McCarthy endorsed Hageman over Cheney, a rare move for a House minority leader. Hageman also has the support of MAGA billionaire donor Peter Thiel.

    Liz you should be running as the democrat you are. Republicans see right thru you. I am sure Pelosi and AIC will campaign for you. You chose, now live with your decisions.

    She is nothing more than a liar and a traitor to this country and her loyalties mean nothing. She is a Rino and anyone who actually votes for this moron is brain dead. It is high time to get this type of person out of our government, the type that will bend and sway any which way the wind blown for her own good. Or you can explain to us just what she has done to at least try to better this country and its citizens whilst being paid by those same hard working, tax paying folks her outrages wages. I’ll wait

    Lizzy is a not so hidden democrat supporter. Her obsession with Trump has outed her as an unstable character. Any obsessed person can be viewed as unstable or having a mental problem, whether severe or mild.

  • Smiley says:

    Be very careful Wyoming as democrats will vote for Liz Chaney in the republican primary. Every republican must get out and vote Hageman.
