Approval Ratings Ominous Sign for AOC
The congresswoman's surprisingly low approval rating – confirming recent polls – comes after a door-to-door survey in her deep blue New York City congressional district.
The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard reports:
It found that she has a low 21% favorability rating, that just 11% believe she has their best interests in mind, and that only 13% would vote to reelect her.
The survey of registered voters was conducted by the political action committee targeting her with a Federal Election Commission complaint, Stop The AOC PAC.
A previous survey by the group found that residents were upset with the lawmaker's opposition to bringing an Amazon headquarters to the district. In part due to Ocasio-Cortez's complaints, Amazon backed out of moving to her district.
The congresswoman and the Stop the AOC PAC have tussled for weeks, especially after the group's founder, Washington attorney Dan Backer, filed an FEC complaint against her campaign.
