Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a problem, and it’s causing a panic among top Democrats.
The leaders of the Democratic Party are apparently in a panic over a poll that shows that voters in swing states view socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [D-NY] as “the face” of the party—and those voters don’t like her…or socialism too much.
“Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House’s most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters,” according to an Axios exclusive.
The poll, notes Axios, was taken before last week’s fight between AOC and Nancy Pelosi errupted as AOC accused Pelosi of racism.
While the poll is fairly focused on AOC, it does mention another one of AOC’s “squad” members: Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota
- Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.
Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.
- Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
- “Socialism is toxic to these voters,” said the top Democrat.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi used to be the poster child for all that’s wrong with American liberals?
Well, it appears that AOC and her “squad” have done the impossible: They’ve made Nancy Pelosi look like a moderate.
