According to a new poll released this month by Axios, among the GOP voters, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney is the most unpopular Republican in the country.

In a poll of notable Republicans, Donald Trump Jr. and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis led with 55 and 54 percent net approval ratings, respectively, while Cheney scored a negative 47 in her favorability rating.

Between July 6 and 8, the survey conducted by Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, the pollster for each of Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns, interviewed 800 Republican voters with a margin of error of +/-3.46 percent.

Axios has shown the results in the chart below.

As the congresswoman continues to antagonize the base and engineer a GOP civil war that is nonexistent outside of her home in Washington, D.C., Cheney’s unfavorable ratings in the nationwide poll reflect similar results from surveys conducted in her own state.

It turns out that Cheney was found to be in deep underwater as a series of primary challengers whom she faces, threaten to oust the three-term incumbent, in an April poll conducted by the conservative political action committee Club for Growth.

No matter Who Cheney’s opponent, more than a half of likely GOP primary voters have said that they would vote against her while only 14% said that she could count on their support.

In May, House Republicans voted overwhelmingly to oust Cheney from her No. 3 leadership position in the House after the now-former House GOP conference chair escalated her feud with Trump and undermined other members. Following her last-minute effort to get Republican support for Trump’s second impeachment, the emboldened Wyoming lawmaker survived an initial referendum in February.

The removal of Cheney from her committee assignments, while she joins Democrats in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s crusade to weaponize the lower chamber and go after political dissidents with the establishment of a Jan. 6 commission, is now being discussed by the Republicans on Capitol Hill.

Cheney said, “I’m honored to have been named to serve on the January 6th select committee,” going on to regurgitate the Democrat talking point that the Capitol riot was the “most serious attack on our Capitol since 1814.”

In 1983, however, the Senate was bombed by left-wing militants, decades before Al-Qaeda terrorists flew a plane into the Pentagon on 9/11, and decades before the summer of rage last year presented routine outbursts of political violence in the nation’s capital.

Pelosi kicked Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, from the Jan. 6 committee last week. On Sunday, the speaker placed Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Cheney ally and fellow Never Trumper in the lower chamber, on the committee.
