If the primary on August 16 reflects the results of a recent survey, Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney could face a primary defeat at the hands of her opponent, Harriet Hageman.
According to a survey conducted by Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has only 28% support.
The poll was conducted between June 1 and June 2, nearly a week prior to the prime-time hearing of the House subcommittee investigating the Capitol intrusion last week. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.
The poll indicates that Hageman has twice as much support as Cheney, 56 percent.

“A huge 71 percent majority say they will vote against her, including 66 percent who will definitely vote against Cheney no matter who she runs against. With only 26 percent saying they will definitely or probably vote for Cheney, she has hit her ceiling on the ballot,” the group wrote.
