Trump Stumped Cheney

Poll: Trump-Backed Challenger In Wyoming Holds Massive Lead Over Cheney  

While Democrats focus on Jan. 6, former President Donald Trump, protecting abortion and ensuring all Americans conform to the LGBTQ agenda, a new poll shows that everyday voters are more concerned about essential issues.

While Democrats focus on Jan. 6, former President Donald Trump, protecting abortion and ensuring all Americans conform to the LGBTQ agenda, a new poll shows that everyday voters are more concerned about essential issues.

The right-leaning pollster Rasmussen Reports released a survey on Friday that showed overwhelmingly the issues voters are most concerned about include gas prices, inflation, the economy, violent crime and election integrity.

Perhaps most emblematic of the misguided approach to the November elections pursued by the Democrats and the allies in the mainstream media is in Wyoming.

There, the Democrats’ favorite Republican, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, continues to be crushed by her Trump-endorsed primary opponent.

A poll released on Friday by the Casper Star-Tribune revealed that challenger Harriet Hageman leads Cheney by a margin of 52-30 among GOP voters.

Cheney, who is one of just two Republicans selected by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to serve on the special committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot, also carries a 66 percent disapproval rating, the poll indicated.   

Cheney has been one of the most vicious anti-Trump Republicans in Congress, having voted to impeach the 45th president over the Jan. 6 riot and recently saying “a man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.”

For that, the poll in Wyoming found that Cheney has a 53 percent approval rating among Democrats in her state, and that 69 percent of Democrats who will vote in the Aug. 16 primary will back her.

In a state Trump carried with 70 percent of the vote.

Meanwhile, the Star-Tribune reported recently that Hageman recently broke her own fundraising record in the second quarter of 2022. She raised $1.8 million in Q2, which topped her previous record in Q1 of $1.3 million. Cheney still holds a considerable lead in fundraising, with $7 million in the bank. But she is largely relying on donors from outside Wyoming to sustain her. In the fourth quarter of 2021, for example, Cheney hauled in $2 million, but only $26,000 of that came from donors in Wyoming.
