Polls this far out are mostly meaningless.
There are campgrounds in and around Yellowstone during the summer which have more people than some county seats.
Cheney should run in the state she was born in and against a Democrat. We don’t need a bye, we need a win.
In Wyoming, we’re not that far out. The winner of the GOP primary in August, 2014, has a very strong chance of winning the November election.
Furthermore, if Dave Freudenthal (former Democratic governor of Wyoming) runs in the 2014 senate election, there’s a real contest. Meaning that the winner of the GOP primary has to have enough money and support left to beat Dave in the general election.
Unlike most other Democrats in Wyoming, Dave is a) very popular, b) knows the issues very well, c) has a sound head on his shoulders. He’s shown more balls in taking on the federal government on land, water and wildlife issues than most of the GOP field.
If Dave wins the DNC primary and is running for Enzi’s seat next fall, I’d predict that if Cheney somehow won the primary, she’d cost the GOP the seat because she’s utterly ignorant of the local issues in Wyoming. And living in Jackson will cement the stereotype she’s creating as a rich carpet bagger parachuting in from DC.
No real difference between the two. I suspect Cheney may be more liberal than Enzi. Don’t need socially liberal pro amnesty neocons. If Cheney campaigned against amnesty, I’d be interested.
