Former Clinton campaign adviser and popular political prognosticator Dick Morris recently said that Congresswoman Liz Cheney will lose her re-election campaign in 2022 in the GOP primary due to her decision to impeach former President Donald Trump.
Morris also said allowing Cheney to remain in Republican leadership shows how out of touch party’s leaders are with their base.

Morris: ‘Liz Cheney Is A Gone Goose’
“She has snowball’s chance in hell of getting reelected,” Morris recently told Newsmax.
“Her favorability is down to 13% and she loses the projected primary by 3-1 or 4-1,” Morris said. “Wyoming went 70% for Trump.”
“And Liz Cheney is a gone goose,” he added.
Morris explained how Republicans leaders don’t understand where the rank and file base is right now.
Morris said, “And it’s ridiculous, and shows how out of touch Kevin McCarthy and the Republican leadership is with the voters of the Republican Party, that he and Scalise worked overtime to round up votes for this…traitor, who voted to impeach Donald Trump.”
“The voters of her state, Wyoming, her state,” Morris insisted “will not be so forgiving.”
Cheney was censured last week by the Wyoming Republican Party for being among the ten Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.
Previous to that state-wide Party vote, many of Wyoming’s County Republican parties also voted to censure her.

Morris: ‘She’s Part Of Republican Royalty Because Of Her Father’
“While she did win the vote in the House because it was basically set up by the leadership and she’s kind of inherited royalty among Republicans,” Morris noted.
Morris did stated a glaring fact about Cheney’s current popularity back home.
“But, in fact, there’s some polling in Wyoming [that suggests that] she has a 13% job approval among Republicans,” Morris said.
Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is currently the third highest-ranking position in the House GOP.
“She shouldn’t be [Wyoming’s] congressman in any case,” Morris said. “But she’s part of Republican royalty because of her father and they don’t want to move against her.”
“But the voters have their own minds,” Morris reminded.

Morris then explained how Republican leaders are probably mis-analyzing their own voters.
“The word ‘base’ is something the Left likes to use to describe Trump supporters,” Morris said.
“It’s not his base, it’s 80% or 90% of the Republican Party. The word is the Republican Party. And they try to pretend it’s fragmented, but it’s not.”
“And if it [is] fragmented, it’s not the Left against the Right, it’s the top against the rest of it,” Morris explained.
“That’s what you’re seeing here” Morris finished.
