When it comes to anti-Trump Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney, GOP leaders might finally be getting the message from conservative voters.
Her support among party leaders is evaporating and swiftly.
Cheney has done little to help herself and has even doubled down on her positions.
PJ Media reports:
Liz Cheney’s Days in GOP House Leadership Are Numbered
Liz Cheney’s days as House GOP conference chairman are numbered. Her support among the party leadership has evaporated after her headline-grabbing statements about the Republican take on the 2020 election being “The Big Lie.”
Many pro-Trump Republicans wanted her to walk the plank after her vote to impeach the former president. But Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stood by her, probably realizing the dire position the party was in after the January 6 riot and not wanting to shed any blood while the party was reeling from the massive media assault.
But now, McCarthy appears to have had enough. Many top Republicans have requested that Cheney get off her anti-Trump platform and promote issues that unify the party. But Cheney refused.
This is the sort of thing that Republican voters are sick and tired of:
The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.

Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House Republicans has even said that Cheney’s days are numbered.
From The Hill:
Top allies of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are vowing to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), one of the harshest critics of former President Trump in either party, from her leadership post by the end of the month.
They argue that the No. 3 Republican has repeatedly contradicted McCarthy and his team, undermining the party’s message and its efforts to take back the House majority in next year’s midterm elections.
“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” one key McCarthy ally told The Hill on Monday. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”
Cheney is just not what Republicans need right now.
GOP voters are tired of being betrayed by their own party.
