The GOP primary for Wyoming’s at-large congressional seat that is currently occupied by January 6th Committee member Rep. Liz Cheney is Tuesday, and according to polls Cheney’s about to be swept out of office:
According to the 2022 Wyoming Primary Election Survey conducted by the University of Wyoming’s Survey & Analysis Center, Cheney is now trailing by nearly 30 points with 27.8 percent compared to Hageman’s 57.4 percent among likely GOP voters.
Broken down by party, Republicans favor Hageman by a margin of 68 percent to Cheney’s 15 percent while Democrats favor Cheney 98 percent to Hageman’s 2 percent. Independents are more evenly split with Cheney up slightly at 43 percent over Hageman’s 41 percent.
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod presented a theory for why Cheney keeps falling farther behind in the polls, and that it’s because she’s unable to hold public events:
.@RepLizCheney reportedly is not able to campaign for re-election at open, public events in Wyoming because of threats to her safety.
This, in the United States of America, folks.
Think about that.

Does it sound as if the list of excuses for a huge Cheney loss is already being written?
Excuse for losing activated. https://t.co/HwdjcfLgJA

What Axelrod tweeted is also the story Cheney is likely to tell after losing and getting a gig at MSNBC or CNN.
Well thats BS. Her polling numbers as so low she knows that she has zero chance of re-election.
Maybe her father could fix this issue for her… Oh Wait! https://t.co/444H2FvtXk

When it comes to getting triggered over “threats,” the Left needs to sit this one out.

Lee Zeldin was attacked on stage by a guy with a blade and is still on the campaign trail. Cheney doesn’t want video of herself being booed and jeered by voters. https://t.co/cncMTZVEuj

Cheney’s campaign is trying to avoid those optics and that’s the reason she’s not having more public events.
