Poll Reveals Just How AOC's Constituents Feel About Her...And It's Enlightening

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may be the progressive left's favorite new Congresswoman, but according to a new poll released by Stop The AOC PAC, her constituents aren't fond of her.

The group walked throughout New York's 14th Congressional District, which covers Queens and the Bronx. They knocked on 10,556 doors and spoke to 22,546 voters. They discovered that:

• 58.2 percent of those surveyed were unfamiliar with Ocasio-Cortez.
• 50.8 percent of those surveyed had an unfavorable opinion of AOC.
• 56. 6 percent of those surveyed said they were unsure if Ocasio-Cortez had their district's best interest at heart.
• 33.4 percent of those surveyed said they would oppose AOC running for reelection next year.

"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," the group concluded. "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."

The political action campaign was started by Washington, D.C.-based attorney Dan Backer, who has “a particularly strong dislike” for Ocasio-Cortez's leftist policies. He decided to survey AOC's constituents to see whether or not she was vulnerable to a primary or general election challenge, the Washington Examiner reported. 

Maybe AOC needs to take a step back from social media and focus on what her constituents actually want. She champions ridiculous ideas, and the reality is, only a small fraction of Americans – and apparently her constituents – agree with what she pushes. This poll is just more proof that Ocasio-Cortez is more focused on being a rising star in the progressive movement and championing progressive ideas than she is about actually representing her constituents.
