The bad news continues to pour in for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez turned herself into the biggest star in the Democrat Party with her social media use and socialist policy proposals.
But her world came crashing down when she saw this nightmare news roll in.
Last week, a national poll dropped showing just 31 percent of Americans held a favorable view of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
It is rare for a member of Congress that is not the Speaker of the House to generate that kind of reaction.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s radicalism made her a national figure and the people do not like what they see.
However, and it’s not a red state-blue state divide.
Even in heavily Democratic New York, Ocasio-Cortez’s approval is underwater.
Yikes: AOC favorability awfully weak in NEW YORK (state), per new Siena poll.
Schumer fav: 51-41 (+10)
Gillibrand fav 43-33 (+10)
Cuomo fav 46-48 (+2)
AOC fav: 31-44 (-13)
De Blasio fav: 34-50 (-16)https://t.co/mLBgJWHSZm

Democrats in her home state are not over the moon with her either.
That same poll found just 47 percent of Democrats in New York held a favorable opinion of the self-described Democrat socialist.
Democrats believe Ocasio-Cortez’s agenda represents the future of American politics.
But are they deluding themselves?
If Ocasio-Cortez and her agenda are unpopular in New York, then Democrats running for President attaching themselves to her policy proposals could be doomed to defeat in 2020.
