“Young bartender” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a joke during her time in Congress.
From ousting Amazon from her region to her ambitious but naively ignorant plans for a Green New Deal, the fact of the matter is that people just don’t like her.
The left may prop her up big online and in mainstream media, but regardless, the facts stand: despite her big talk of change, AOC doesn’t represent the majority of people’s real values.
To prove it, a new poll just released shows that support from her own constituents has fallen, indicating that she may lose the re-election.
Check it out:
The poll was conducted by an organization that calls themselves Stop the AOC.
Let that sink in.
AOC has a whole group of people dedicated to getting her out of office, and she's only held the seat for less than a year...
Here's what Stop the AOC had to say about their poll on Twitter:
Here's more from The Washington Examiner:
She’s a star on the national political stage, but Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is viewed skeptically back in her Queens and Bronx 14th Congressional District, according to a new door-to-door survey.
It found that she has a low 21% favorability rating, that just 11% believe she has their best interests in mind, and that only 13% would vote to reelect her.
The survey of registered voters was conducted by the political action committee targeting her with a Federal Election Commission complaint, Stop The AOC PAC.
A previous survey by the group found that residents were upset with the lawmaker’s opposition to bringing an Amazon headquarters to the district. In part due to Ocasio-Cortez’s complaints, Amazon backed out of moving to her district.
Backer said that he has “a particularly strong dislike” for Ocasio-Cortez’s leftist politics and wanted to test the district to see if she is vulnerable to a primary or general election challenge. In 2018, she upset the Democratic establishment by defeating House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley in the primary.
She has since become a media star and leader of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.
But in her district the survey conducted by Mobilize the Message for the opposition group found weak support for the congresswoman.
The Epoch Times has more details on the poll's findings:
A third of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) own constituents in New York’s 14th Congressional District say they would not vote to reelect her, according to a new door-to-door survey of 2,261 homes.
The survey, conducted from April 29 to June 7 by Stop the AOC PAC, found that only 13 percent of voters in Ocasio-Cortez’s district would vote for her reelection. At the same time, 33 percent of constituents said they were “ready to vote against her.”
The freshman congresswoman had a favorability rating of 21 percent, with less than 11 percent believing she had their best interests in mind when she quashed the Amazon deal.
Another key finding was that 42 percent of her constituents were unfamiliar with her name, “despite her enormous media coverage and Twitter presence,” the pollsters said.
A major point of disagreement constituents had with the congresswoman was the scrapping of the Amazon HQ deal. The survey found that only 9 percent were opposed to the deal, which would have brought in thousands of new jobs to the New York area. Thirty-three percent believed Ocasio-Cortez did not have their best interests in mind in regard to the Amazon deal.
“Facing an electorate more concerned with results than retweets, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has problems in her backyard,” the pollsters said.
“Despite her online notoriety and fandom in the national new progressive movement, the citizens of New York District 14 want a representative aligned with their values.
“It’s clear Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is not the model for hope and change she sold herself to be.
“The opportunity for a new voice is prevalent, and the electorate is ready to take action in 2020.”
So, chances are, AOC may be gone with the wind as quickly as she blew into political fame.
What do you think?
Will AOC be re-elected or quickly forgotten and buried in history?
