To The Surprise Of Nobody, Dems Internal Polling Shows Swing Voters Don't Like Progressives

Yikes. Internal polling shows that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ilhan Omar, two newly elected notable ideological progressives in Congress, are driving the media cycle and image of the Democratic Party. This is bad news for Dems because, as reported by Axios, most swing voters do not approve of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez nor Rep. Omar. Likewise, these same voters also have a mostly negative view of the socialism the left wants in America. These voters do, however, favor capitalism, which has been vilified by members of Congress and Democratic 2020 candidates alike.

According to Axios, the poll was "taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi's latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as "The Squad" — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education." 

The results of the poll showed that "Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view." Likewise, "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." 

Plus, "Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%."

The bigger point of all this is if AOC continues to be the focus of the media, then Republicans mgiht have a chance to take back the House. Axios' sources lamented that "socialism was toxic to the people" and that "If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk."
