Mike Enzi Holds Wide Lead Over Liz Cheney In First Wyoming GOP Poll
It’s still early, obviously, but according to the first official poll since Liz Cheney announced her candidacy, Wyoming Republicans aren’t too impressed:
A new Harper Polling survey in Wyoming finds Sen. Mike Enzi (R) crushing challenger Liz Cheney (R) in a Republican U.S. Senate primary, 55% to 21%.
Among other findings in the poll:
- Enzi has a 76% favorability rating, with only 6% viewing him unfavorably, while 17% say they’ve heard of him but have no opinion. Additionally 73% approve of the way Enzi has performed as Senator, 9% disapprove, and 19% have no opinion.
- Former Vice-President Cheney has a 74% favorability rating, with 16% viewing him unfavorably, while 10% have no opinion
- Liz Cheney herself has a 45% favorability rating, while 15% viewing her unfavorably, 2% saying they never heard of her, and 38% saying they have no opinion
- Finally, 48% say Enzi deserves a 4th term, 28% say he doesn’t, and 24% are unsure at this time.
I have no idea how reliable this pollster is, and PPP is already saying that they have a poll in the field in Wyoming that should be released early next week, but this seems to be an early indication that Cheney faces an uphill battle.
