However, Cheney might want to think twice about throwing her hat in the ring for president.
“She could single-handedly swing the election to Trump.”

POLL: If Liz Cheney Ran as an Independent, She'd Take More Votes from Biden than from Trump https://t.co/KxFPaMtHTA

Yahoo News reported:
The survey of 1,563 U.S. adults was conducted from Aug. 18 to 22 — immediately after Cheney lost last Tuesday’s Wyoming House primary to a Trump-backed challenger by nearly 40 percentage points.
It found that if the 2024 election were held today — and if it were a one-on-one rematch between President Biden and Trump — Biden would lead by 4 points among registered voters, 46% to 42%.
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.

Daily Caller added:
Nineteen percent of those polled said Cheney should run for president, compared with 51% who said she should not. Among Democrats, 30% said she should run, and 10% of Republicans said the same.
Given the choice between Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Cheney, 53% of Republican voters ranked Trump as their top choice. Thirty percent of Republicans picked DeSantis, with 6% picking Cheney.
