Leftists bash President Donald Trump for having an approval rating less than 50 percent.
When the president posted a 41 percent showing, a Bloomberg headline read, “Trump Should Worry About His Approval Rating.”
When Trump was briefly at 39 percent, Gallup said Trump was faltering.
And, of course, whenever a poll shows something liberals don’t like, they either ignore it or call it biased.
Maybe that’s why the left doesn’t seem to want to talk about a recent survey showing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s favorability rating at 21 percent.
That is a lower number than any favorability poll result in Donald Trump’s presidency.
According to the Washington Examiner, the survey found AOC was “disliked, distrusted,” and “unwanted” — in her own congressional district.
The survey was conducted among registered voters by a political action committee investigating alleged Federal Election Commission violations by AOC.
The committee, Stop The AOC PAC, found that just 11 percent of Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents thought she had their best interests in mind. The survey results showed the cause was likely AOC’s opposition to Amazon placing a major operations hub near her New York district.
Per the Washington Examiner, the survey found the following:
- 42 percent are unfamiliar with AOC.
- 51 percent have an unfavorable view of AOC.
- 33 percent are ready to vote against AOC, and only 13 percent would vote for her.
Although Ocasio-Cortez clearly has a large following on Instagram and Twitter, she doesn’t appear to be very popular with average constituents in New York’s 14th Congressional District.
Her problem could be her vocal support of socialism and buddy-buddy appearances with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Or it could be her whining like a goat over the $4,500 raise she didn’t get. (But profits and capitalism are bad, y’all!)
Or it could be that she wants to outlaw cow farts, hamburgers and airplanes.
Or it could be that when one of the largest employers in the world suggested it might come to her state bringing jobs and huge amounts of tax revenue, Ocasio-Cortez and other liberals protested and ran the company off.
People who needed jobs don’t have them because of AOC’s foolish, soapbox chest-beating.
And it’s those people that will go to the voting booths next election.
It’s not all the Twitter followers, it’s not all the social media “friends,” it’s not all the mainstream media hosts who aren’t even covering her 21 percent favorability rating that actually matter.
No, it’s the people in the voting booth, the average Americans who care more about feeding their kids than the gaseous emissions from a bovine.
They will be the ones making decisions in 2020. So, wish AOC good luck.
She’s going to need it, y’all.
