AOC Could Soon Be Back Tending Bars After What Her Constituents Told Pollsters

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York might have to return to bartending after her first term, at least if recent polling data is any indication.
The Stop The AOC PAC recently surveyed residents in New York’s 14th Congressional District, which Ocasio-Cortez represents, about their congresswoman.
“My family came from Russia when I was a baby, and I grew up hearing what they went through. And I have a strong dislike for that ideology,” the PAC’s founder, Dan Backer, told The Daily Caller, explaining why he believes it’s so important to fight Ocasio-Cortez’s policies.
“‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,'” Backer said, quoting a line from former President Reagan, though 18th century statesman Edmund Burke was the first to use it. “Someone had to stand up and do something. If we don’t challenge socialism, we let it win,” Backer added.
It looks like Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents are already turning against her, according to data collected through Backer’s organization.
“We did robocalls and text message polling and compared the data,” Backer said.
The results were telling.
“We saw that the district is for the Green New Deal and some of her other policies,” Backer said.
“But they’re wildly opposed to her with regard to Amazon, the reality of the jobs and the opportunities that she cost them. She screwed over the local economy in a big way, and screwed over her voters.”
Earlier this year, Amazon canceled its plans to bring its headquarters to New York, which would have provided 25,000 new jobs in exchange for $3 billion in tax breaks.
Amazon canceled the deal because multiple New York elected officials, including Ocasio-Cortez, were hostile to the company and its plans.
“It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan,” Jodi Seth, Amazon’s head of policy communications, told NBC News at the time.
Ocasio-Cortez, for her part, celebrated Amazon’s decision to cancel the deal on Twitter and slammed Amazon’s “corporate greed.”

But not everybody was celebrating the loss of jobs — even liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was upset at Ocasio-Cortez for spoiling the Amazon deal.
And Stop The AOC PAC’s canvassing data suggests that only 9 percent of voters agree with Ocasio-Cortez’s position on Amazon.
Another 36 percent support Amazon, while 55 percent of respondents said they were “unsure.”
Moreover, only 20 percent of respondents said they hold a favorable opinion of their democratic socialist congresswoman, compared to 44 percent of voters who have an unfavorable opinion of her.
This poll, of course, is absolutely humiliating for Ocasio-Cortez. Many of constituents don’t support her, and a large chunk of the poll’s respondents (43 percent) said they weren’t even familiar with her.
Her constituents don’t seem to be fans of her hostile stance toward Amazon, which chased away 25,000 jobs.
But voters should expect more of the same from Ocasio-Cortez, as her democratic socialist policies will inevitably result in fewer jobs and less prosperity.
“I think she’s very beatable,” Backer told The Daily Caller. “Her district — they don’t know her, they don’t like her, they don’t trust her. As long as we give voters the choice, they’re choosing to turn away from her.”
Ocasio-Cortez touts herself as a heroine for the working class, but many of her constituents rightfully see her for what she truly is — a job-killing socialist.

  2. Here's what AOC doesn't understand about business relocation incentive; If a corporation gave me $10.00 for every $1.00 I give them, I'd be handing over singles from now till doomsday! She's upset about giving them the $1.00! Idiot! :)
