Cheney Backed Into A Corner – 2024 Prediction?
(RepublicanNews.org) – US Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) recently lost her seat in Wyoming’s primary election by a landslide. The soon-to-be former congresswoman has teased the idea of running for president in 2024. Little does she know that while claiming she’ll do whatever is necessary to stop Donald Trump from becoming president again, her presence on the ballot would likely catapult him to victory.
Outstanding news for conservatives. Run, Liz, run! https://t.co/EwCnqZsFbe

A recent YouGov/Yahoo News poll shows that if Cheney runs for president in 2024, Trump would almost certainly win. The survey indicates that without Cheney being on the ballot, President Biden would lead his predecessor in a rematch of the 2020 election, with 42% of respondents supporting the current administration and only 39% favoring Trump.
However, with Representative Cheney on the ballot as an Independent, the numbers heavily favor the former president. In a theoretical election involving the congresswoman, Biden, and Trump, Cheney would only receive 11% of the votes, most of them coming from independent voters, whom she would siphon from Biden. As a result, the president’s numbers would decrease, earning only 29% of the vote, whereas Trump would get around 37%.
According to the poll, Cheney has very little chance of becoming president, especially if Trump and Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) run. The congresswoman only received 6% of the votes in the survey, while DeSantis received 32% and Trump earned 50%.
