Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was stripped of her two committee assignments over her support of Trump and her years-old social media posts, has had a large spike in favorability among Republicans, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll this week.
The lawmaker’s approval among GOP members climbed 11 points to 30% compared with a survey done last week, which was before she was taken off her committees, while her 23% unfavorability rate stayed the same. The number of Republicans who were unaware of her decreased from 60% to 47% during that time.
Meanwhile, House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney, who survived being removed by pro-MAGA House Republicans over her joining with Democrats to impeach former President Trump, and who was also censured by Republicans in her home state of Wyoming, also strangely had her favorabililty increase among Republicans, by seven points, from 15% to 22%. While 42% of Republicans said they didn’t know her.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is now at the same level of recognition among voters (at 59%) as House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy.
