Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney is trying to expel Donald Trump from the Republican Party.
Never-Trumpers thought the Capitol riot would turn Republicans against Trump.
But Liz Cheney got some bad news when she looked at these brand new poll numbers.
Liz Cheney was one of ten Republicans in the House who voted to impeach Donald Trump.
Cheney claimed Trump incited the January 6th riot on Capitol Hill.
In a livestream appearance at the Reagan Institute, Cheney defended her vote claiming Trump was guilty of “summoning the mob and provoking them.”
Cheney also smeared Trump and declared Republicans must actively reject white supremacy.
Donald Trump condemned white supremacy on numerous occasions.
But the problem with what Cheney is asking the GOP to do – to accept the Democrat Party talking point that Republicans actively court the vote of white supremacists – is that it’s simply not true.
“It’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy. You certainly saw anti-Semitism, you saw the symbols of Holocaust denial, for example, at the Capitol that day. You saw a Confederate flag being carried through the Rotunda. And I think we as Republicans in particular have a duty and an obligation to stand against that, to stand against insurrection,” Cheney added.
Cheney’s comments came on the same day YouGov released new polling numbers showing why Cheney is fighting for her political life.
Just 20% of Republicans have a favorable view of Liz Cheney compared to 45% who view her unfavorably.
By comparison, 38% of Democrats view her favorably while 34% view her unfavorably.
The problem for Liz Cheney is only Republicans vote in Republican primaries.
