According to Wednesday’s Quinnipiac University poll, 28 percent of Americans said Greene represented the GOP, while 25 percent said the same of Cheney. Forty-seven percent did not comment.
Both lawmakers have been brought into the national limelight in recent weeks. Greene made a number of headlines over previous statements calling for violence against Democrats. He claimed that school shootings were carried out and that forest fires were caused by a secret space laser. She has also promoted the unsubstantiated QAnon conspiracy theory. The House voted this month to remove her committee duties.
Cheney, meanwhile, drew violent Republican backlash over her vote in January to then indict.President TrumpDonald TrumpLawmakers say resolving the border crisis is Biden’s job. Trump urges Republicans to boycott companies while voting rights are controversial for his role in inciting the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. That vote sparked criticism of their Republican Party and a failed attempt by House Conservatives to remove them from their leadership positions.
A small majority of Americans in the new poll – 52 percent – said they still haven’t heard from Greene. Only 9 percent had a positive view of them compared to 38 percent who had an unfavorable view. Greene’s favoritism rating of Democrats and Independents is in the single digits, but 17 percent of Republicans are positive compared to 20 percent who are negative.
Cheney’s vote raised her standing nationally and among Democrats, but it made Republicans piss her off. 27 percent of Americans have an overall positive opinion of them, while 19 percent have an unfavorable opinion. Forty-six percent of Democrats said they see them positively, only 9 percent see them negatively, but only 7 percent of Republicans say they have a positive opinion.
When asked who should play a bigger role in the GOP in the future, 45 percent of those polled went with Cheney, while 14 percent said Greene. However, among Republicans, 25 percent were on Greene’s side, while 22 percent said Cheney.
“Two Republican women Congressmen are taking on political heat with very different results. Rep. Liz Cheney’s impeachment stance will cost them within the GOP but win some Democrats cost them dearly in the house,” said Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University polling analyst.
The Quinnipiac University survey polled 1,056 adults February 11-14 and has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
