Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is popular among non-whites, women, and Americans between the ages of 18-35.
Why? Who knows?
Ignorance is bliss, perhaps? How else can be it be explained why any person in America would support a Democrat Socialist?
A newly revealed poll is very bad news for AOC.
From Daily Mail:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s public approval rating nosedived between September and February, polling data from Gallup show.
Significantly more Americans recognize the Democratic congresswoman’s name since a combination of socialism and shoe leather catapulted her to stardom with a Democratic primary win over a 10-term incumbent.
Just 21 per cent of American adults told Gallup’s pollsters last month that they didn’t know who Ocasio-Cortez was. That number was 50 per cent in September, before she coasted to victory in the general election.
But the more people recognize her, the less they like what they hear: The number of people who have unfavorable views of the 29-year-old lawmaker from New York has grown far faster than her fan base.
Ocasio-Cortez is also underwater in her net favorable ratings among men (-24), whites (-24) and adults aged 55 and older (-22).
On a net basis, Ocasio-Cortez performs best among Democrats (+41), of whom a majority (56%) now view her positively, and nonwhites (+20). Meanwhile, her net ratings are slightly negative among independents (-5) but slightly positive among women (+4) and Ocasio-Cortez’s own age cohort of adults aged 18 to 34 (+5).
Ocasio-Cortez thinks people are mad at her for the all wrong reason.
She doesn’t get that her policies would devastate the pocketbooks of workaday Americans, and what’s worse is she seems to be willfully ignorant.
Check out AOC going after her critics…
From Daily Wire:
According to freshman congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), her critics simply dislike her because of her power as a woman — not because she endorses radical ideas that could spread widespread misery.
“The idea that a woman can be as powerful as a man is something that our society can’t deal with,” she told The New Yorker, echoing the intersectional feminists’ mantra that men cannot tolerate powerful women. “But I am as powerful as a man and it drives them crazy.”
As noted by HuffPost, the New York congresswoman’s statements were in response to a quote from Jezebel’s Ashley Reese: “Women are often either characterized as hideous harpies like Hillary Clinton or pretty idiots whose ‘craziness’ is bound up with their sex appeal. … To her critics, Ocasio-Cortez is firmly in the pretty idiot category.”
AOC probably assumed she was extremely popular. If so, she was wildly inaccurate.
What AOC needs to focus on is helping Americans, which means no more socialism.
What are the odds that happens?
