AOC may be a national star but she is looking more and more like a flash in the pan at home in her New York City district.
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should not be happy with a new poll showing her with high unfavorable in her Queens and Bronx 14th Congressional District.
How low? The poll found that she has just a 21% favorability rating. Wow, that is hard to do.
It also shows that only 11% of her constituents think she has their best interests in mind. Worse, only 13% would vote to reelect her.
From The Daily Wire:
The door-to-door poll from Stop The AOC PAC yielded the following key results:
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.
The poll also found that a plurality of Ocasio-Cortez’s district did not agree with her decision to sabotage the Amazon deal, which would have brought tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity to her district.
The final analysis from the poll stated:
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.
The results from the Stop The AOC PAC poll are just the latest devastating numbers Ocasio-Cortez has had to face over her job performance. In March, Vox reported:
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.
