Loyal supporters of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied to defend her after she was mocked for saying that she was ready to ditch her beloved Tesla over a spat with billionaire Elon Musk, the CEO of the electric vehicle manufacture but one blue-check blogger stepped on a rake when a poll that he posted spectacularly backfired.
David Weissman who writes opinion pieces for the far-left website Occupy Democrats as well as being a prolific tweeter sought to prove a point that conservative polls were not an accurate reflection of American opinion and decided that it would be a great idea to invite responses on who is more trustworthy, the socialist diva AOC or Musk but he soon had egg dripping from his smug face as the results came in.
Weissman, an Army veteran who identifies himself as “Former MAGA, now a Biden voter” on his Occupy Democrats bio, wrote “Let’s prove how phony the right’s ridiculous polls are by doing one of our own. Who do you trust more @elonmusk @AOC,” and it wasn’t even remotely close.
In the final verdict rendered by participants, the Tesla/SpaceX CEO absolutely destroyed the loquacious New York City narcissist by a score 81.2 to 18.8 percent, a clobbering that only further serves to illustrate that coastal cultural elite leftists exist inside of a reality-free bubble that in no way reflects the views of the nation as a whole, Weisman’s ill-fated poll drew 375,365 responses.
The poll caught the attention of Musk himself who couldn’t resist dunking on the hapless leftist screed monger.
“At first, I thought this was a parody,” tweeted Musk punctuating his dunk with a laughing emoji.
At first, I thought this was a parody 🤣

Weissman sniped back, “I thought you were one as well but well played.”

Responses from Twitter users were a mixed bag, with some loving it and others suggesting foul play.
Good job proving how stupid the left are 👍.

You have to remember that Elon has thousands of bots on his side

A poll between a guy who turned the tide in electrifying the world…versus a bartender who doesn’t know what a garbage disposal is.
Seemed like a loss before it began.

"It's all in good fun" because AOC got destroyed in your poll. Had she won, you would have said that this poll shows what America wants, and berated anyone that supports Musk. You're such an inept LOSER…Go sit down.

AOC is a parody in herself. Such a joke. She's an embarrassment to our great country.
Hey @AOC go fix me a drink! A stiff one please to deal with the 💩 show administration running this country into the ground🤦♀️ https://t.co/SfprX40wS3

Ths is exactly why they took the unlike button off of YouTube! The ratios on Brandon’s videos were getting out of hand. You can’t have people actually knowing how unpopular the left is. Kudos to you for not taking this down. (Even though I fully expect you to at some point)

It looks like Elon has released the bots to vote for him.
— Barry (@Wahootoo) May 28, 2022
Backfired on him. It's hard to imagine how anyone could possibly think people would trust a Kleptocrat like AOC. David clearly does not understand how tiny his clique of government power worshippers is. We see right through them. https://t.co/IJK4SFXJ95

Elon has 8x the followers and they’re largely insane fanboys so of course he’s gonna win this poll
Disclaimer my vote is with Elon but he’s not the fking lone savior of the planet
Pretty sure that still belongs to Bruce Willis in Armageddon https://t.co/aI0xc0KiPT

To his credit, Weissman is at least for now, leaving the poll results up.
“Not sure how this poll flipped but I won’t delete it and will take the L,” he tweeted.

AOC told Bloomberg that she is prepared to ditch her Model 3, stating that she instead wants to get an EV that is made by unionized labor, a key constituency of the Democratic Party despite the currently limited selection of such vehicles.

Ocasio-Cortez bought her Tesla for the commute between her home district which includes parts of the Bronx and Queens and Washington, D.C., during the COVID pandemic.
“At the time, it was the only EV that could get me from New York to Washington on like one, or one-and-a-half charges,” she told Bloomberg. “I would love to switch.”
