As she attracts national attention from the televised hearings on the events of Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., is also clearly in big trouble with her fellow Wyoming Republicans.

Furious at Cheney becoming one of 10 GOP representatives to support the impeachment of former President Donald Trump and her continuing attacks on him, Republicans want her out in 2022.

According to a just-completed McLaughlin poll among likely Republican voters in the Cowboy State, a whopping 72% have an unfavorable opinion of their state's lone U.S. representative.

When Cheney is pitted one-on-one against state Rep. Chuck Gray (for whom the poll was conducted), he demolishes her 63%-24%.

But, with seven other candidates in the primary with Cheney next year, it is now unlikely Gray or anyone else will get to go one-on-one with the three-term congresswoman.

When the McLaughlin poll listed five major contenders with Cheney, she topped the field with 22%, followed by Gray with 18%.

Obviously aware Cheney might just win again by a plurality, Republicans in the state Senate introduced a measure to require a run-off in primaries for statewide and state legislative offices. In March, the measure lost by a vote of 15-14.

Trump voiced dismay at the defeat of the run-off proposal. Sources close to the former president told Newsmax he will endorse a candidate against Cheney, but he also wants to play a role in clearing the field of other insurgent candidates who might make it possible for Cheney to win.

"If there are still eight others running, Liz will win," Jack Mueller of Cheyenne, former National Chairman of the Young Republicans, told Newsmax. "Trump's endorsement of a primary opponent will make a big difference. If those stupid ones running will get over their ego trips, she can be defeated."
