AOC Looks at Possible Senate Run ... Against Top Dems
Stop the Notorious AOC
AOC's possible next step: primarying Schumer in 2022 or Gillibrand in 2024 for a Senate seat from New York, sources tell Axios on HBO. https://t.co/Q2UyrtYyMY— Axios (@axios) June 10, 2019
Per Red State:
Axios provides links to two polls, one that suggests socialism — the preferred ideology of AOC — has soared among women and young voters; the second showing that AOC, while enjoying popularity in her district and among Democrats nationwide, may not have the support of the rest of New York.
AOC’s time as a Representative — a race she barely won and, many believe, only because her contender’s supporters thought he had it in the bag so they failed to show up and vote — has been gaffe-heavy and embarrassing at times. But the Democrats are surely interested in keeping her around. She’s attractive, young, and apparently is unafraid to be the face of their most radical ideas.
It’s bad strategy to let someone like that go.
And, if Axios has good information, they don’t intend to.
Other recent polling from the Empire State suggests AOC may have gotten too big for her designer britches.
According to a survey from Siena, Sens. Schumer and Gillibrand statewide net approval ratings are +10. Ocasio-Cortez's is -13.
