The media may love Liz Cheney but when it comes to actual Republican voters it’s an entirely different story. According to a new poll there is overwhelming approval for her ouster.
According to the poll by CBS/YouGov, a whopping 80 percent of Republicans surveyed gave a thumbs up to GOP House leadership. Republicans staged the intervention to remove her from the No. 3 leadership spot after her war on former President Donald J. Trump became a distraction.
Cheney has used increasingly shrill language as she ridiculously presents herself as a defender of “democracy”. However, her constant trashing of Trump and tens of millions of the party’s own voters risks dividing the GOP. Especially at a time when it should be unified against Joe Biden’s extreme agenda.
But voters aren’t buying it, at least not according to the poll. It confirms that the Republican party is now Trump’s party, and the rejection of Cheney is the rejection of the globalism and endless wars that the Bush-McCain-Romney establishment has long championed.
According to a CBS News Poll, 80 percent of Republicans agree with Liz Cheney’s removal — they feel she was off-message, unsupportive of Mr. Trump, and that she’s wrong about the 2020 presidential election. https://t.co/NZBihSHFdK pic.twitter.com/6m1NrzpVds

According to CBS News; “Eighty percent of Republicans who’d heard about the vote agree with Cheney’s removal — they feel she was off-message, unsupportive of Mr. Trump, and that she’s wrong about the 2020 presidential election.”
“To a third of them, and most particularly for those who place the highest importance on loyalty, Cheney’s removal also shows ‘disloyalty will be punished.’”
Another recent poll, by the Economist/YouGov shows that Cheney is much more popular with Democrats who have become the greatest supporters of the Deep State.
Just as is true of the CIA and FBI, Democrats have greater levels of approval for **Liz Cheney** than Republicans do.
That is representative of who Democrats now are: the CIA, the FBI, the Cheney Family, George W. Bush, and love of Big Tech & corporate media. https://t.co/jmG0SenNPL

The Wyoming congresswoman and daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney’s crusade to purge Trump and his supporters from the party has clearly failed. This left her and other RINOs who sided with Democrats on impeachment to air their grievances in the media.
Cheney has staked her hopes of leading the rebellion and restoring control of the GOP to the neocons on the big lie of the so-called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol. She continued to hammer this left-wing talking point as she made the rounds on the anti-Trump media circuit.

There is something that Democrats and their “Republican” allies like Cheney really fear about the ongoing audit of the vote totals in Arizona’s Maricopa County. If the vote was legit for Biden, one would figure that they would welcome it.
Cheney is a toxic presence, a liar, as well as a malicious actor whose treachery has no limits. This is evident by her role in promoting the hoax that Russia was putting bounties on the heads of American soldiers. The tale that was cooked up by the intelligence community and fed to the New York Times to sabotage Trump’s effort to bring troops home from Afghanistan.
According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, “Liz Cheney, as she so often does, blatantly lied. That she merely spoke of the Russian bounty story in the conditional — “every single thing I said: I said if those stories are true” — is completely and demonstrably false. Indeed, other than Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), there are few if any members of Congress who did more to spread this Russian bounty story as proven truth, all in order to block troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. In so doing, she borrowed from a pro-war playbook pioneered by her dad, to whom she owes her career...”
There is also Cheney’s orchestrating of an unprecedented mutiny by 10 former Secretaries Of Defense who wrote a joint letter to the Washington Post suggesting that Trump could use the military to stay in office; another big lie.

A recent New Yorker article quoted longtime Dick Cheney confidante Eric Edelman: “Edelman revealed that Cheney herself secretly orchestrated an unprecedented op-ed in the Washington Post by all ten living former Defense Secretaries, including her father, warning against Trump’s efforts to politicize the military.”
The evidence is overwhelming that GOP House leadership and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy did the right thing by dumping Cheney from leadership. Her support is largely confined within the D.C. Beltway, actual voters are justifiably glad to be rid of her.
