New Poll Is a Disaster For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows that an overwhelming majority of voters either hold a negative view of Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or know too little about her to form an opinion.

The numbers are shocking for a woman widely considered to be the socialist leader of the resistance party.

The survey indicates that 36 percent of voters gave Ocasio-Cortez an unfavorable rating while 23 percent offered a favorable one, putting her underwater by 13 percent.

A remarkably high 38 percent said they didn’t know enough about the woman whose social media presence is so vast she offered to give her colleagues a lesson.

Only 2 percent of Republicans view her favorably, while 74 percent chose the opposite. Independents were 20 percent favorable, to 36 percent unfavorable.

Ocasio-Cortez unknown or unliked by most voters, poll shows: ‘Not A-OK for AOC’

Ocasio-Cortez has a negative favorability rating amongst women and is unknown amongst African-Americans (61 percent) and Hispanics (49 percent).

Trouble With Democrats

Democrats were 47-7 percent in the positive, but a significant 44 percent hadn’t heard enough. How is it possible that a socialist that is leading her party off a cliff by supporting anti-Semitism and proposing radical and costly platforms with no basis in reality, isn’t known by her own party?

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, issued a statement regarding Ocasio-Cortez’ poll numbers.

“All is definitely not A-OK for AOC,” Malloy said. “Most voters either don’t like the firebrand freshman Congresswoman or don’t know who she is.”

Even Vox admitted that “AOC’s poll numbers are bad,” though they suggest it’s conservative media that is the culprit behind the negativity.

Blames Bias

Ocasio-Cortez lashed out rather negatively just ten days earlier after learning that her ‘unfavorable’ ratings have been on the rise since she took office, according to a separate Gallup poll.

She blamed white men and Fox News for allegedly disproportionate poll numbers.

If you want to know what subconscious bias looks like, it’s a headline saying “AOC is underwater with every group EXCEPT women, nonwhites, and 18-34 year olds.”

So older, conservative white men are considered “everyone” and everyone else is discounted as an exception.

Cool ??

The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into “AOC TMZ” (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers.@JaneMayerNYer has reported deeply on this propaganda machine + it will be aimed at any Dem they want. Nothing changes that.

We can’t be scared by that.

Bright Side

Sure her numbers are tanking, but Ocasio-Cortez can take solace in the news that another Twitter-savvy, popular-within-their party politician is doing quite well.

The Daily Presidential Tracking Poll from Rasmussen shows that President Trump’s favorability ratings are in the positive, with 50 percent approving his job performance and 49 percent disapproving.

Surely, that news will cheer her up.
