Poll Has Very Bad News for AOC

A new Gallup poll found that freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has unprecedented name recognition; however, her approval rating "skews negative." (Mediaite)

Gallup reports “half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September” after her upset primary win against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. Now two months into office, only 29 percent of people say they do not know who she is.

31 percent of those polled said they had a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, while 41 percent said they had an unfavorable view of her.

Her polling was abysmal among men, white people, and people aged 55 and older. Her best polling was unsurprisingly among Democrats and minorities.

The Washington Examiner noted she is now as unpopular as when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was leading the effort to defund Obamacare, which resulted in a government shutdown in 2013.

Ocasio-Cortez's name recognition is currently higher than Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and prominent Senators like Cory Booker.
