Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) isn’t hugely popular in her own party and even in her own state, according to a recent poll.
Only 31% of respondents view Ocasio-Cortez favorably, with 41% holding a unfavorable opinion of her according to a March 15 Gallup poll, and her numbers especially dropped off among New York Democrats who blamed her for Amazon ditching its plans to open a headquarters in Queens.
Her popularity is lower than Hillary Clinton’s record low of 36% from a Sept. 2018 Gallup poll, and President Trump fared better at 43% in a recent Fox poll which is in line with Gallup’s findings.
Ocasio-Cortez has been on a consistent downward spiral since her election, according to Gallup, which found that she’s not very well-respected in her home state when compared to her peers.
Additionally, 38% of respondents said she was a “villain” in how she handled the Amazon deal, with only 12% claiming that she was a hero.
A large majority of New York residents supported Amazon’s plans, the poll stated.
