Early polling shows that Liz Cheney would be moving AGAINST her goal to stop Donald Trump from re-gaining the White House…
She wouldn’t win we all know…
But she IS a Republican….
What IS REALLY important for her?
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., has vowed to do “whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office” — including possibly embarking on a White House bid of her own.
“It is something that I am thinking about,” Cheney said last week.
Yet a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that if Cheney were to run for president as an independent in 2024, she could actually do the opposite.
She could single-handedly swing the election to Trump.
The survey of 1,563 U.S. adults was conducted from Aug. 18 to 22 — immediately after Cheney lost last Tuesday’s Wyoming House primary to a Trump-backed challenger by nearly 40 percentage points.
It found that if the 2024 election were held today — and if it were a one-on-one rematch between President Biden and Trump — Biden would lead by 4 points among registered voters, 46% to 42%.
But in a three-way race with Cheney on the ballot as an independent, Trump would suddenly vault to an 8-point lead over Biden, 40% to 32%.
In that scenario, Cheney trails with just 11% of the vote. The problem for Biden is that nearly all of Cheney’s votes come at his expense — and there are enough of them, in theory, to put Trump over the top.
It’s far too early to peg Cheney as a spoiler. It’s unclear, for instance, whether she will even run — or if so, whether she would go so far as to compete in the general election as an independent candidate….
