Liz Cheney, the television pundit and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, moved her family from Virginia to Wyoming recently to challenge Sen. Mike Enzi, R, in a Republican primary next year.
This week, Cheney released a six-minute web video announcing her candidacy. At her first campaign event, she suggested that her 69-year-old opponent was “confused” because he said that she’d told him she wouldn’t be running.
But our new Conservative Intel Poll suggests that Cheney faces a bigger problem: Wyoming Republican voters are a bit confused by her decision to run. The poll, conducted for Conservative Intel by Harper Polling, shows that GOP voters there view Enzi very, very favorably (76%/6% fav/unfav) and back him over Cheney by more than 30 points, 55% to 21%.
