Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just got some bad news about what people think of her.
A poll, released on Friday, showed that while she has become more known, her unfavorable rating has skyrocketed by 15 points and most people just don’t like her.
From Daily Wire:
“Half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today,” Gallup reported. “But the increased visibility has not improved her overall standing with Americans.”
In September, Ocasio-Cortez’s “favorable” vs “unfavorable” rating was nearly deadlocked at 24% and 26% respectively, now it stands at 31% and 41% respectively.
Gallup further noted that Ocasio-Cortez’s favorable rating was “underwater” among the majority of groups and was only viewed as favorable among 56% of Democrats.
“The congresswoman is viewed negatively by most Republicans, of whom 73% have an unfavorable view of her — up from 52% in September,” Gallup added. “Ocasio-Cortez is also underwater in her net favorable ratings among men (-24), whites (-24) and adults aged 55 and older (-22).”
Ocasio-Cortez, who doesn’t react well to criticism, did not react well to the poll.
“If you want to know what subconscious bias looks like, it’s a headline saying ‘AOC is underwater with every group EXCEPT women, nonwhites, and 18-34 year olds,'” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “So older, conservative white men are considered ‘everyone’ and everyone else is discounted as an exception. Cool”
“The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into ‘AOC TMZ’ (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers. @JaneMayerNYer has reported deeply on this propaganda machine + it will be aimed at any Dem they want,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “Nothing changes that. We can’t be scared by that.”
Goes straight for the demonizing of Fox News and reducing it to “old white conservative men” don’t like her. Who has the “subconscious bias” here?
And multiple Fox shows have invited her to come on to express her opinions and she has turned them all down. Funny that, if she cares about what Fox is saying.
Maybe the response one should have to a poll like that is to say: what is it that people are being troubled by? Why is it people aren’t liking what she’s saying?
