According to a Quinnipiac University poll released on February 17, 2021, 28% of Americans said Taylor Greene is representative of the GOP, while 25% said the same about Cheney. 47% had no opinion on the matter. This highlights a realignment taking place within the party, where much of the base is beginning to question the Bush-era consensus on nation-building abroad and capitulating to political correctness.
Taylor Greene has earned a lot of flak for her staunch nationalist views and her indefatigable defense of the Second Amendment. The fact that she’s willing to speak her mind and introduce legislation the grassroots desires makes party hacks and the corporate media go nuts.
Cheney has come under fire for her vote to impeach the-President Donald Trump on the flimsy grounds that he incited a riot on Capitol Hill on January 6. Cheney would be censured by the Wyoming Republican Party. 61 Republican members in the U.S. House also launched a failed attempt to remove Cheney from her position of GOP Conference Chair.
Similarly, among Republicans, 25% believe that Greene should have a bigger role with the party going forward, while 22% believe Cheney should play a bigger role in the party.
Republican leaders should take note and start listening to their voters. If they fail to do so, the party could lose critical races that could be determined by thousands if not hundreds of votes.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, not Liz Cheney, is the future of the GOP.
