Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) revealed to the New York Post this week that she hasn’t ruled out running for President in 2024, noting that she’s been “here a long time.” Polling data shows Cheney is tremendously unpopular among Republican voters, with approval ratings that struggle to reach double digits.
“I’m not ruling anything in or out – I’ve been here a long time,” Cheney told the Post.
Cheney joined the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017.
“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House,” Cheney said. “I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying.”
“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list,” the representative who participated in a bizarre impeachment attempt of a former president continued. “So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ’24.”
As National File reported in February, Cheney’s approval in her home state of Wyoming plummeted to 10% after supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump:
A survey undertaken by the Save America PAC has found that support for US Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), once one of the Republican Party’s rising stars and the number 3 most powerful Republican in the House of Representatives, has fallen to a devastatingly low 10 percent among Wyoming Republicans.
The survey, paid for by Save America, President Donald Trump’s new Political Action Committee (PAC), painted a dreary picture for Cheney’s re-election chances, as well as her current political standing.
According to the survey results, 73 percent of Wyoming Republican voters and 62 percent of all that state’s voters expressed an unfavorable view of Cheney, a three-term congresswoman. An anemic 10 percent of Republican primary voters and 13 percent of those who indicated they would vote in the General Election said they would vote to reelect her.
The survey also found that Ms. Cheney was getting crushed in a one-on-one match-up against one of her most potent primary challengers, State Sen. Anthony Bouchard. In that contest Cheney was losing to Bouchard 21 percent to 54 percent, nearly double her numbers.
