Ocasio-Cortez Furious As New York Poll Declares Trump More Favorable Than She Is!
A new poll from New York was just released and it is not good for Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
It shows in the midst of liberal New York, the President has higher favorable ratings than she has!
More registered voters in the state of New York view President Trump favorably than Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., according to the latest poll numbers from the Siena College Research Institute.
While neither the president or congresswoman crossed the 40 favorability percent threshold in the blue state, Ocasio-Cortez only had a 31 percent favorable rating and Trump had the backing of 36 percent of people surveyed.
The Washington Examiner explains:
Ocasio-Cortez receives the majority of her support from New York City, while upstate voters and voters from the downstate suburbs view her unfavorably at nearly 50 percent each. The majority of voters in all three regions view Trump unfavorably.
One of the major topics of the poll was Amazon’s recently scrapped plans to construct a new headquarters in Queens after facing opposition by local activists, and Ocasio-Cortez, for what they viewed was an unfair deal that served Amazon more than helping neighboring New Yorkers. Amazon pulled out of the deal shortly thereafter, leading some New York leaders to decry the opposition’s efforts.
More than two-thirds of polled voters viewed the failure of the Amazon deal as bad for New York and a large majority of voters, 61 percent, would be open to Amazon reconsidering its decision and returning to the area. When asked the roles many local politicians had in the failure of the Amazon deal, Ocasio-Cortez, more than any other person associated with the deal’s collapse, was viewed as a villain. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who sought to persuade Amazon to reverse its decision, was viewed as more of a hero.
The poll measured responses from 700 registered voters in New York, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
Ocasio-Cortez has caused quite a stir in her rise to the most popular congresswoman in the party. As we discovered, she was chosen to specifically drive the party to the far left, and she is doing a pretty good job.
She, in doing so, has also brought the party to the brink of an all out Civil War, pitting the moderate wing against the socialist wing of the party.
Along the way, she has also severely embarrassed the party, with some really wild zingers. Of course, as mentioned, the biggie being to run a huge job and revenue opportunity, the Amazon headquarters, right out of the state.
Then there was her crazy questions she posed to the CEO of Wells Fargo last week.

“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.
“I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t,” Sloan responded.
Then of course, her Green New Deal, where she declared we would get rid of cows and airplanes!
These along with a number of really ridiculous statements about the economy and how government works, have pretty well made her very popular with her base. In the meantime, the rest in America are left to say, even in New York, WTH?
