Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was speechless when she saw the results of this poll
There is one big lie about the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s career.
The truth would destroy her.
And she was left speechless by what this poll said about her future.
The Fake News Media portray Ocasio-Cortez as a political force of nature.
They claim her support for socialist programs like the “Green New Deal” are wildly popular and represent the future.
But none of that is true.
In fact, a recent Gallup poll shows Ocasio-Cortez is as unpopular as Ted Cruz – the Republican Senator the media regularly lampoons as unlikeable.
Gallup reports “half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September” after her upset primary win against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. Now two months into office, only 29 percent of people say they do not know who she is.
31 percent of those polled said they had a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, while 41 percent said they had an unfavorable view of her.
Her polling was abysmal among men, white people, and people aged 55 and older. Her best polling was, unsurprisingly, among Democrats and minorities.
It is astonishing that a first-year House member has turned herself into a national figure.
But that comes with risks.
Ocasio-Cortez is the most high profile Democrat in America.
Until the party picks a presidential candidate, that will continue to be the case.
The bad news for Democrats is that because of her visibility and popularity with the base, Ocasio-Cortez will drive the conservatives in the presidential primary.
And the candidates will be forced to react to the whims of a terribly unpopular politician.
