Never-Trump RINO Liz Cheney is out of Congress but not done with politics.
Cheney has her eyes set on a 2024 showdown with Donald Trump.
Liz Cheney said she wants to run for President, and you won’t believe what happened next.
Before Cheney left office she did not do much to deny that she was interested in running for President.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell Cheney did not deny she was planning a 2024 campaign.
“At this point, I have not made a decision about 2024. I am really very focused on the substance of what we have to do on the select committee, very focused on the work that I have to do to represent the people of Wyoming, and I’ll make a decision about 2024 down the road,” Cheney told Mitchell.
Cheney explained she was willing to do anything to stop Trump from winning a second term.
“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican,” Cheney added.
In her concession speech following her 37-point defeat at the hands of a Trump-backed primary challenger Cheney compared herself to Abraham Lincoln who lost several Congressional elections “before he won the most important election of all.”
Cheney running for President as a Republican who worked hand-in-hand with Nancy Pelosi, voted for gun control, homosexual marriage, and the $1,700,000,000,000 socialist spending bill always seemed far-fetched.
But new polling data shows just how absurd the idea of Cheney entering the GOP Presidential nominating contest really is.
A new Premise Data poll of GOP primary voters found 59 percent supported Donald Trump and Liz Cheney came in at two percent.
Breitbart reports, “The Premise Data poll conducted between January 19-23 found that 59 percent of U.S. adult participants who view themselves as Republicans back Trump in his bid for the GOP presidential nomination, more than doubling the support of his nearest competitor, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), at 24 percent.”
“No other potential candidate reached double-digit support,” Breitbart noted. “Former Vice President Mike Pence landed in third place at eight percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley with two percent of the response each. One percent of poll participants back Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC).”
“Premise Data also gauged a hypothetical general match-up between Trump and President Joe Biden among 2,288 U.S. adults, finding they are in a dead heat at 50 percent of support apiece. A Biden versus DeSantis general election also yielded a 50-50 split among the same sample,” Breitbart concluded.
When Cheney lost her primary, the media compared Trump defeating Cheney to Darth Vader striking down Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, imagining a scenario where Cheney would end up with a bigger platform.
That idea was always laughable.
But this polling makes it clear just how absurd the idea of Cheney playing a major role in the GOP really is.
