- 214.4K Views
According to a recent poll, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is very unfavorable within her own district in New York. The poll suggests that only 21% of people in her district have a favorable opinion of her and only 13% would vote for her in the next election.
Check out the results below:
They don’t like her. She has a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (50.88%) to favorable (21.37%) in public opinion.
They don’t trust her. Only 10.75% thought she had their best interests in mind in quashing the Amazon deal – 32.60% said she didn’t.
They don’t want her. 33.44% are ready to vote against her, and only 13.30% would vote for her.
Many of the people that were polled were also very upset with her action to destroy the Amazon deal which would have brought thousands and thousands of jobs to New York City.
Check out the full analysis of the poll below:
Facing an electorate more concerned with results than retweets, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has problems in her backyard. 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.
After surveying voters in 2,261 homes in the district, 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.
This isn't the only proof that shows Ocasio-Cortez is going downhill in support. Check out what Vox reported back in March:
A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday morning found that 23 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the member of Congress, while 36 percent had an unfavorable view — a -13 overall approval rating ...
This new poll isn’t a one-off finding. Three prior surveys — one in January from Morning Consult, one in February from Fox, and a third in mid-March from Gallup — all found that more Americans had negative views of AOC than had positive ones.
Ocasio-Cortez is also disliked for her "Green New Deal" plan that would ban all gas cars, planes and even cow farts. Earlier in June, the far-left socialist told reporters that the plan must be at least $10 trillion if it is going to have a "shot."
“I know it’s a ton,” she said while referring to how expensive the plan is. “I don’t think anyone wants to spend that amount of money, it’s not a fun number to say, I’m not excited to say we need to spend $10 trillion on climate, but … it’s just the fact of the scenario.”
“It’s not popular, it’s not politically popular. People are going to call it unrealistic, and I just don’t think people understand how bad the problem is,” she also said.
$10 trillion would just be the beginning. Breitbart reported: "According to an analysis conducted by the conservative nonprofit American Action Forum (AAF), the ambitious plan could cost the U.S. up to $93 trillion in the next ten years alone. The bulk of that cost would come from implementing the plan’s big government economic agenda."
