Per Yahoo, a new “Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that only 17 percent of Republicans thought Cheney, a Wyoming Republican, should have stayed in a leadership position in the House GOP, which stripped her of the post this week. Cheney’s demotion in the conference resulted from her frequent sparring with Trump and her refusal to embrace his meritless claims that the November election was stolen.”
“Two out of three Republicans supported the move, with 65 percent favoring Cheney’s removal, and another 17 percent saying they were not sure,” the report adds.
Appearing on NBC’s “Today” show, Rep. Liz Cheney was asked three times if she would run for president to stop Trump from regaining the Oval Office and to “restore” the GOP.
Cheney did not rule out the possibility, instead saying only she would do “whatever it takes.”
Cheney said “I’m very focused on making sure that our party becomes again a party that stands for truth and stands for fundamental principles that are conservative, and I won’t let a former president or anybody else unravel the democracy.”
“I think it’s really important for us to be as strong as possible in defeating the Biden policies. We cannot do that if we enable a lie. We cannot do that if we fail to learn the lessons from the 2020 election,” Cheney also said.
