Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is trailing challenger Harriet Hageman by more than 20%, according to a new poll from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy; Hageman is endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
From The Daily Wire:
A total of 52% of likely primary voters in the state said they supported Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, with only 30% showing support for Cheney, according to a Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy survey conducted on behalf of the Casper, Wyoming, Star Tribune.
The poll, conducted July 7-11 among 1,100 likely voters, showed 11% undecided, with no other candidate reaching double digits in support. Republican state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, the next highest-ranking candidate, received 5% support.
The race between Cheney and Hageman has been receiving national attention for months, but the survey marked “the first independent, public, in-state poll” conducted so far. Early voting has already begun, with the primary set for August 16.
The poll also revealed more than two-thirds of Americans disagree with Cheney serving on the Jan. 6 Committee.
If Cheney loses her primary, she hasn’t ruled out a 2024 White House run. Cheney hinted at a run for the Oval during a July 3 interview on ABC News’ This Week with Jonathan Karl.
“I’ll make a decision about ’24 down the road,” Cheney said.
“I think about it less in terms of a decision about running for office, and more in terms of, you know, as an American – and as somebody who’s in a position of public trust now, how do I make sure that I’m doing everything I can to do the right thing; to do what I know is right for the country, and, and to protect our Constitution,” she added.
