After losing her primary race Liz Cheney said she was considering a run for President.
She is yet to make a decision on it but if she decides to run as an independent it turns out that she would actually be helping Trump.
A new poll found that in a Biden-Trump rematch Liz Cheney would actually hurt Biden more than Trump.
Trump would lead the race with 40% of the vote with Cheney taking more votes from Biden who would only get 32%.
Yet a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that if Cheney were to run for president as an independent in 2024, she could actually do the opposite.
She could single-handedly swing the election to Trump.
But in a three-way race with Cheney on the ballot as an independent, Trump would suddenly vault to an 8-point lead over Biden, 40% to 32%.
In that scenario, Cheney trails with just 11% of the vote. The problem for Biden is that nearly all of Cheney’s votes come at his expense — and there are enough of them, in theory, to put Trump over the top.
As Liz Cheney’s chances fall Donald Trump continues to get more popular.
Trump’s GOP primary poll numbers have risen since the raid of Mar-A-Lago.
Donald Trump has seen his poll numbers improve after the raid at his Mar-a-Lago estate, at the expense of what many see as one of his key rivals in 2024.
The former president’s share of the potential Republican primary voters boosted from 53 percent in mid-July to 57 percent on August 10, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll.
