Default Poll: AOC disliked, distrusted, unwanted in her own NY district

Poll: AOC disliked, distrusted, unwanted in her own NY district

She’s a star on the national political stage, but Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is viewed skeptically back in her Queens and Bronx 14th Congressional District, according to a new door-to-door survey.

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.

Backer said that he has “a particularly strong dislike” for Ocasio-Cortez’s leftist politics and wanted to test the district to see if she is vulnerable to a primary or general election challenge. In 2018, she upset the Democratic establishment by defeating House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley in the primary.

She has since become a media star and leader of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

But in her district the survey conducted by Mobilize the Message for the opposition group found weak support for the congresswoman.

The key findings:
  • 42% are unfamiliar with AOC.
  • 51% have an unfavorable view of her.
  • 33% are ready to vote against her, and only 13% would vote for her.

Facing an electorate more concerned with results than retweets, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has problems in her backyard. Despite her online notoriety and fandom in the national new progressive movement, the citizens of New York District 14 want a representative aligned with their values,” said the survey analysis.

Backer said that he hopes potential opponents act on his survey results and take on Ocasio-Cortez.

“She does not have a strong constituency outside her core support group,” he said.

Voters in the 14th district got what they paid for. She beat Crowley in the primary and the Republcan by 70 points.

The good news is the turnout was so low it will take only a few votes to vote her out.
