Everyone thought Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a shoo-in for re-election.
They thought wrong.
That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got hit with some bad news that left her head spinning.
Ocasio-Cortez’s polling has been underwater nationally and in the state of New York for some time.
Things are only getting worse.
Amazon had announced a new headquarters in Queens that would bring 25,000 jobs to the area.
Ocasio-Cortez led a charge on the Left to stop the deal because of tax breaks the company received from the city and state.
Amazon eventually declared enough was enough and announced they were canceling the project, costing the city 25,000 good, high paying jobs.
That did not sit well with the voters in Ocasio-Cortez’s home district.
The Stop AOC PAC commissioned a survey of voters in her district and found that 44 percent had an unfavorable view of her compared to 20 percent favorable.
The Daily Caller reports:
The data showed that over a third of the households surveyed weren’t familiar with Ocasio-Cortez, and 44% had an unfavorable view of her. Only 20% had a favorable view of the freshman lawmaker.
But the issue that truly made her vulnerable, according to Backer, was her vocal opposition to the Amazon HQ deal that was scrapped several months earlier.
“I think she’s very beatable,” Backer concluded. “Her district — they don’t know her, they don’t like her, they don’t trust her. As long as we give voters the choice, they’re choosing to turn away from her.”
The media paints a picture of Ocasio-Cortez as politically bulletproof.
But that may not be the case.
And she is in much greater danger of defeat than anyone may realize.
