Taco bar revolutionary Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not happy that a recent poll shows that Americans are becoming increasingly turned off by her diva act and that her approval ratings are rapidly plunging.
The narcissistic 29-year-old has become the most well-known member of Congress despite her only being a member since January and she has leveraged her social media presence as a way to force her whacko ideas on the Democratic party which she effectively has become the leader of.
However, AOC’s celebrity status is a double-edged sword that could be her Achilles heel and lead to her shining star abruptly flaming out.
According to the results of a recent Gallup poll, only 31 percent now view the former bartender positively, not a good omen for Democrats including the presidential candidates who rushed to embrace AOC’s socialist Green New Deal..
According to Gallup:
Two months into her new job on Capitol Hill, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a much more recognizable figure to Americans. Half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today. But the increased visibility has not improved her overall standing with Americans. Whereas the public had mixed views of Ocasio-Cortez in September, her image now tilts slightly negative, with 31% viewing her favorably and 41% unfavorably.
Since September, the congresswoman’s unfavorable rating has climbed 15 percentage points while her favorable rating is up by seven points. The latest data are from a Gallup poll conducted Feb. 12-28.
The thin-skinned congresswoman is not happy at all that there is a growing perception that the empress has no clothes and as is typical, she took her spin directly to Twitter to once again play the victim, engage in the obligatory race-baiting and to blame her unpopularity on Fox News.
And like the Green New Deal, she resorted to more junk science by invoking “subconscious bias” which means that white folks are racist but don’t even know it.
The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into “AOC TMZ” (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers.@JaneMayerNYer has reported deeply on this propaganda machine + it will be aimed at any Dem they want. Nothing changes that.
We can’t be scared by that.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized media coverage of her latest polling results on Saturday, noting her net favorability among all women and all non-white Americans, even as some commenters suggested that “Americans” now viewed her negatively.
“So older, conservative white men are considered ‘everyone’ and everyone else is discounted as an exception,” the progressive New York congresswoman tweeted. “Cool.”
The freshman Democrat blamed Fox News’ round-the-clock negative coverage for increasing the number of Republicans and white Americans who know who she is –and who view her unfavorably.
“The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into ‘AOC TMZ’ (no offense to TMZ),” she wrote, referencing the celebrity tabloid site. She also called Fox News a “propaganda machine” that “will be aimed at any Dem[ocrat] they want”.
In addition to name dropping Jane Mayer who writes for the New Yorker and whose recent piece on Fox News has been criticized for inaccuracies, AOC also touted her popularity with the younger voters who are suckers for socialism and largely lack any working knowledge of history or civics.
She’s the queen of Generation Tide Pod, hence the Democrat efforts to lower the voting age to 16 years old in order to take advantage of their gullibility.
Ocasio-Cortez’s reaction isn’t likely to earn her any approval points in future polls because the more that people see of the upstart congresswoman, the more that she grates on their nerves with her arrogant sense of entitlement.
