Leftist Ocasio-Cortez is heralded as a hero from her revolutionary friends, but the American public at large and her constituents do not feel the same way. The Daily Wire reports:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued to be angered over her increasingly poor ratings on Monday, suggesting on Twitter that centrists who do not agree with her are legitimizing bigotry.
A poll released by Gallup on Friday “found that the increase in Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘unfavorable’ rating in recent months has more than doubled her increase in ‘favorable ratings,'” The Daily Wire reported. “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.”
A seperate poll released this week found that only 12% of New Yorkers call Ocasio-Cortez a “hero” after she worked to sabotage the Amazon deal — which would have brought tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars worth of economic activity to New York — while “38 percent label her a villain.”
“When ‘centrists’ care more about the GOP base than the Dem base, bigotry gets legitimized,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in response to a tweet on her ratings. “This is *the* playbook. GOP does it w/ virtually every Dem figure who isn’t a white male: otherize, demonize + splinter. It’s vital that we adapt & dismantle this approach, not cow to it.”
The American center is recoiling from radical leftism, and this will only help the Republican party.
