Liz Cheney wins ALG straw poll


By Rick Manning

Americans for Limited Government conducted an internal poll of supporters and subscribers on August 16 and 17 testing which candidates were most likely to garner support and which were rejected by respondents. 

Liz Cheney won the question, “In 2024, who do you refuse to vote for?” with 93 percent declaring their electoral enmity toward the anointed GOP leader of the NeverTrump cult. 

Cheney was closely followed by Senator Mitt Romney who polled at 88.9 percent with former Vice President Mike Pence garnering more than two-thirds of those who would refuse to vote for him. 

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a relative unknown, received an impressive amount of rejection at 36.7 percent.  It can be assumed that the more people know Larry, the higher he will rise on the ALG Reject List.

Interestingly, while 15.3 percent of the respondents definitely would vote for former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, 31.5 percent rejected her completely.  A meager 5.6 percent indicated that they would definitely vote for former Vice President Pence.

This unscientific poll was provided to both email and Facebook followers of Americans for Limited Government, but at least Liz Cheney can say that she won one poll on August 16, and we don’t even have to wait for the mail-in ballots to be counted.  Congratulations Liz.

Rick Manning is the President of Americans for Limited Government.
