President Donald Trump has made a prediction ahead of Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) doomed primary election on Tuesday.
Cheney’s days in Congress now appear numbered as her Trump-endorsed primary Harriet Hageman takes a significant lead in the polls.
With the looming primary just days away, Trump has issued a warning to Cheney.
“167 and 6 on Endorsements this cycle,” Trump said of victories enjoyed by the primary candidates he’s endorsed.
“This includes many who didn’t have a chance of getting elected.
“Most of the ‘Impeachers’ are gone or going,” Trump continued in a post on TRUTH Social.
“Crazy Liz Cheney, who rarely leaves Virginia, will be shown the door by the great people of Wyoming next Tuesday.
“The Unselect Committee is a T.V. ratings ‘BOMB.’
“Only the Adam ‘Shifty’ Schitt family is watching!”
“The people of Wyoming are fed up with Liz Cheney and want a member of Congress who actually does her job and represents the people who hired her,” Tim Murtaugh, a spokesperson for the Hageman campaign said.
“Cheney should be standing up to the Biden administration, but instead she’s consumed with furthering her own personal war with President Trump and plotting her own national political future.
“But this race isn’t about Cheney — it should be about the people of Wyoming,” he said.
“That’s why Harriet Hageman will be the next congresswoman from Wyoming.”
Cheney is losing ground in her race, according to new polls.
According to Wyoming Public Media:
A new University of Wyoming poll shows that Republican U.S. House candidate Harriet Hageman leads Congresswoman Liz Cheney by nearly 30 points as primary election day looms.
The survey was conducted by the Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center between July 25th and August 6th.
It received 562 responses from likely Wyoming voters in the upcoming primary and has a margin of error of plus or minus four percent.
Overall 57 percent of those planning to vote in the Republican primary will vote for Hageman with only about 28 percent indicating they will vote for Cheney.
It also shows that 41 percent are voting against Cheney as opposed to strongly supporting one of her opponents.
UW Political Scientist Jim King said that says a lot.
“When you have a candidate, particularly Hageman, with a large lead but roughly two-fifths of her support comes from people who are opposing the incumbent, that clearly puts us in a referendum type of election, and Cheney is losing the referendum,” said King.
