AOC Could Be in Trouble as New Poll Shows Tiny Percentage of Constituents Would Back Her Reelection

A new door-to-door survey — undertaken by the Stop the AOC PAC — found that only a tiny percentage of voters in freshman firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) district would back her reelection to office, illustrating possible electoral trouble for the first-term congresswoman.

It was revealed in a poll published on Monday that the Democratic Party’s prominent social media star — who represents parts of Queens and the Bronx in New York — was unfamiliar to nearly half of her constituents, nearly 42%.

Additionally, over half of the voters — 51% — in her district said they had an unfavorable view of the freshman Democratic congresswoman and only 11% of the people surveyed said they think that Ocasio-Cortez has the community’s “best interest in mind.”

One of the most surprising pieces of information, however, came from the last question of the survey, which asked participants if they would “pledge to oppose” Ocasio-Cortez in the 2020 election cycle.

Only 13% of survey participants said they would vote to reelect the self-described democratic socialist back into office, while 33% said the would vote against her. Fifty-three percent were unsure if they would vote for Ocasio-Cortez.

The conclusion of the summary drove home her predicament:

“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.”

Ocasio-Cortez ran into similar polling troubles in a Gallup poll earlier this year which found that 40% of American adults had a negative view of the freshman representative, as IJR Red previously reported.

She is an indictment to the state of our education system. Don’t forget that the ignorance spewing from her mouth is backed by a college education, clearly showing that our institutes of higher indoctrination are alive and well while higher education has disappeared into our not so distant past. When leftists run our schools and colleges she is what you get.

She is ignorant when it comes to most comments she makes.She has no proof on most comments.The media can as her questions on U.S. history and even world history and you can bet that she would get 99% wrong.She most likely does not know or understand what a concentration camp is and most likely will say the Holocaust did not ever happen !!!!! This is what happens when you elect a uneducated bartender as a politician !!

That’s what you get when you elect someone because of their sex and/or ethnicity. She’s a mouth with no brain behind it. Gross ignorance who lied about not running on impeachment. Some of the other ‘elected women’ are in trouble as well. Delusional statements and campaign finance fraud are common.
