Liz Cheney Could Use Trump Arrest to Boost Her 2024 Chances

'I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican... '

(Headline USA) Former Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-Wyo., could use the indictment and arrest of former President Donald Trump to build momentum for a 2024 run, according to a new poll.

Support for Cheney has jumped significantly since news of Trump’s indictment broke last month. Before the indictment news, just 5% of Republicans voters said they supported Cheney. But now, 10% of Republican voters say they back her — which means she is in third place for the 2024 nomination behind Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

However, the poll also found that Trump’s support has skyrocketed in the wake of the indictment. Before the indictment, 43.8% of Republican voters said they would support him in the primaries. Now, 56.2% say they would back him — giving him a massive lead over competitors. DeSantis, for example, comes in only at 22.5% support.

Cheney is widely hated by Trump supporters and was ousted from the House of Representatives by Wyoming voters last November. She has since joined the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics as a professor of practice.

“Preserving our constitutional republic is the most important work of our time, and our nation’s young people will play a crucial role in this effort,” Cheney said in a statement. “I look forward to working with students and colleagues at the center to advance the important work they and others at the University of Virginia are doing to improve the health of democracy here and around the world.”

Cheney is reportedly weighing a 2024 presidential bid and hinted publicly that she would be willing to challenge Trump to make sure he doesn’t win the GOP nomination.

“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee,” she said at the time. “And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”

Trump was arraigned on Tuesday afternoon after being indicted by a grand jury in connection with a $130,000 “hush money payment” his campaign made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.
