Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez might be a hit among the fringe left, but polling indicates she’s alienating voters and Democrats.

A new poll released by the Siena College Research Institute shows AOC’s favorability has tanked.

Favorability by the numbers:

From the SCRI:

“Ocasio-Cortez, with a negative 31-44 percent favorability rating, is as well known to statewide voters after three months in office as Gillibrand is after ten years as senator. While Democrats view Ocasio-Cortez favorably, independents view her unfavorably more than two-to-one and Republicans view her unfavorably, 68-6 percent. She is viewed slightly favorably in New York City but strongly unfavorably upstate and in the downstate suburbs.”

Worse still (for AOC), 2/3 of respondents strongly support the Amazon HQ deal that Ocasio-Cortez actively fought against, and say Amazon’s decision not to build a large facility in Queens is bad for New York:

Loudonville, NY. By a 67-21 percent margin, New Yorkers say that Amazon cancelling its planned second headquarters in Queens was bad for New York. By as nearly as large a margin, 61-30 percent, they support the deal in which Amazon would receive up to $3 billion in state and city incentives and create up to 25,000 jobs if Amazon reconsiders, according to a new Siena College poll of New York State registered voters released today.

AOC’s petulance has made her a thorn in the side of Speaker Pelosi, who has lost control over the younger, extremist wing of the party. But this is the generation progressives designed and fostered, an issue that’s looking seriously problematic heading into election season:
