Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got more bad news as her rating approval is plummeting each day.
Apparently New Yorkers are livid about losing the Amazon deal and all the jobs and revenue that would have resulted and they blame the young socialist, according to a poll published Monday
Thirty-eight percent identified the freshman congresswoman as the biggest villain while only 12 percent called her a hero.
By comparison, 34 percent called local activists the chief villain; 29 percent Mayor Bill de Blasio; 28 percent Gov. Andrew Cuomo; 26 percent Amazon itself; 21 percent the state Senate, and 17 percent labor unions.
“Who do New Yorkers blame? Well, there’s certainly blame enough to go around … However, voters say the biggest villain was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said pollster Steven Greenberg.
“Amazon itself was seen as the biggest villain among Democrats, but Republicans and independents had Ocasio-Cortez as far and away the largest villain, followed by the local Queens activists.”
Voters overwhelmingly viewed Amazon’s decision to back out of its deal as a blow to the state.
Sixty-seven percent said the withdrawal was “bad” for New York, while only 21 percent said it was “good,” the Siena College Poll found, according to The Post.
The poll surveyed 700 registered voters and has a margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
Meanwhile, AOC has other major problems including possible campaign violations which the FEC is investigating.
Former FEC Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky said in a Fox News op-ed Sunday that he believes there’s sufficient evidence to “justify opening a criminal investigation” into Ocasio-Cortez’s alleged campaign finance violations.
So, things aren’t looking so good for the former barteneder.
More to come-stay tuned!
