A new poll of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ district shows that her voters are not at all happy with her and have already had just about enough of their newly minted “representative.”
It looks like New Yorkers are not quite as crazy to the left as advertised?
According to Daily Wire, the new in-person poll from Stop The AOC PAC found the following:
- 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.
And a good number of those polled are upset that she ruined the Amazon deal that would have brought hundreds of jobs to the area.
The poll concluded:
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 is not the first poll that finds AOC in trouble back home.
In March, The Daily Wire also reported: “The findings of the Siena College poll of New Yorkers taken between March 10-14 prompted Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg to say, ‘Only 12 percent call her hero, while 38 percent label her a villain.'”
A Quinnipiac poll recently released also found that most of Congress is not in much better shape. Only a scant 23 percent said that they had a favorable view of Congress and 36 percent had an unfavorable view.
That result is called being “underwater.”
