POLL: In New York, Trump’s Approval Ratings are Higher than Ocasio-Cortez’s

POLL: In New York, Trump’s Approval Ratings are Higher than Ocasio-Cortez’s

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

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:

ow! That has got to hurt!

No matter how low her poll ratings go AOC is still fave-rave in Hollywood, the media, and college campuses. So while the old fogey Soviet Central Committee (Pelosi & Co) detests her she still enjoys the unqualified support of the New Khmer Rouge.

For that reason there is almost no chance she will be replaced. Democrat leaders will back down.

you never go full bsc

Politicians no longer represent their district or state. They represent their party. If you are a republican in AOC’s district you have absolutely no representation. I lived in WA state for many years and with Murray and Cantwell, there was never a time that I had any representation in the Senate.

In reference to Ben Adler’s “defense”: Here you have a journalist looking for the thinnest of defenses against an undeniably bad poll result in the politician’s home state. I wonder how often that happens on the other side of the political aisle.

She’s JUST like Clinton (and Michelle).

As long as the shill media can talk ABOUT her, people view her favorably.

The more people are exposed to the ACTUAL PERSON, the lower their favorability goes.

Clearly White State-ists. That is a political reenactment of diversity.

AOC was recruited by radicals in the Justice Democrats. You can see how popular their agenda is and really to get this unpopular this fast means their whole movement is doomed or the Democrat party is and I bet someone in the Establishment Democrat party decides they are done.

Ah these lyrics come to mind: “Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You…” They are finally figuring out who she is.

Can we saw NYC off from the rest of the state and push it out to the Atlantic?
Look at the upchuck and kristen numbers. I see no hope for that state. And de blah blah is over 30%, NYC voters are making aoc look intelligent if they’re that happy with de blah blah.

It’s all the Orange Man’s fault (assisted by Fox News)!
