When you’re Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, familiarity breeds contempt. The newbie Congresswoman’s unfavorable ratings rocketed a stunning 15 points since September 2018.
The More You Know AOC, The Less You Like Her
According to a new Gallup poll, Ocasio-Cortez is now more known among Americans, but less liked. Gallup pointed out that AOC is a polarizing figure:
“Americans have taken note of the meteoric rise of Ocasio-Cortez, who went from a Manhattan bartender to a committee member on the powerful House Financial Services Committee in less than a year.
But their view of her has become slightly more negative than positive in the process.
Ocasio-Cortez’s image is now much like most of her congressional peers — whose negative ratings generally outweigh their positive ones.”
AOC’s Cluelessness Annoys People
Ocasio Cortez’s unfavorable ratings soared from 26% to 41% during the past six months, which were punctuated a series of epic blunders where the former bartender spotlighted her ignorance of economics, environmental issues, and politics.

Ocasio-Cortez shot to fame to emerge as the de factor leader of the Democrat Party, thanks to her embrace of radical leftist ideas such as socialism, open-borders, and her unwillingness to pay taxes even as she urges Americans to pay their fair share.
Deadbeat Democrat Ocasio-Cortez wants Americans to pay more taxes, but never paid her taxes from 2012. (socialism for thee, but not for me.)

Democrats Starting to Resent Ocasio-Cortez
Meanwhile, anxiety and resentment of AOC is mounting within the Democrat Party due to the wall-to-wall media coverage she gets for her daily gaffes.
ABC News reporter Tom Llamas says Ocasio-Cortez is stealing attention away from the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential candidates — and that’s a serious problem when you’re trying to unseat President Trump, whose base remains solidly behind him.
“It reminds me of 2016. You have all these candidates. The question is, who has that baked-in 20% [base]? Is that Biden? Is it Bernie Sanders, like President Trump did when he ran?
The other big problem Democrats have right now is that the most talked-about Democrat in this country is not running: AOC. What does that say about the party? Is that where the party’s at right now?”
