Wyoming’s primary election is next Tuesday, and the race many political gurus are closely observing is between incumbent U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney and Republican challenger Harriet Hageman.

A brand new poll from the University of Wyoming gives Hageman a 30-point lead on Cheney. That’s not just a small lead, that’s huge – and rare in an election.

Cheney’s team is likely drafting a concession speech instead of a victory speech, because it’s almost a guaranteed defeat for her.

What does this massive swing against a Republican incumbent indicate about the nature of Washington politics? Well it certainly shows that voters are rethinking the Deep State and the dirty politicians who run the show.

In the case of Cheney, however, she has only been serving in the U.S. Congress for three terms, a shorter span of time on the spectrum of career politicians. Even former Vice President Dick Cheney, her father, was still not able to pull the strings needed in the Swamp to give her a comfortable lead.

Was it her unreliable commitment to the voters of Wyoming? Or the lack of integrity for her own morals? Likely her involvement in the Jan. 6 hearings, or maybe the fact that she is backed by nearly 100% of Democrats and almost no Republicans.

Just 2% of Democrats put their support behind opponent Hageman while 98% put their support behind Cheney, indicating vastly different platforms the two are running on.

It’s clear Cheney did things to anger her own constituents. But what’s also clear is that Americans are paying attention to Washington phonies and they’re reacting by voting.

Next week’s primary will give an insight into just how many voters feel inclined to participate in the ousting of Cheney, which will give an even deeper clue into where Republicans stand heading into the November general election.

Will voters turn out in record numbers to kick her out of Washington? Or will typical primary voters be enough to secure the win for Hageman? That’s to be seen in just four days.

There exists a multitude of unreliable political figures on both sides of the fence, and this should be seen as a wake-up call to establishment politicians running the show in Washington.
