Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made national headlines with her “Green New Deal.”
They were not all good.
Now one number has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wondering what just happened.
There was no doubt that Ocasio-Cortez’s call for a Soviet-style takeover of the United States economy would be popular with Democrats.
After all, they are the party of socialism.
But no one knew how popular her plan would be.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out the results of one poll that said 83 percent of Democrats would be more likely to vote for a candidate that endorsed her “Green New Deal” than one that did not.

Many Americans are wondering what happened to the Democrat Party.
In Barack Obama’s first term, he fought off accusations he was a “wooly eyed liberal.”
Now Democrats sprint to endorse the socialist label as well as the completely discredited economic theory.
But it is great news for Donald Trump.
Democrats are lurching left just as President Trump is gearing up for re-election, having presided over one of the greatest economic booms in American history.
There will be an easy contrast for the President to make.
Do Americans want four more years of peace and prosperity?
Or do they want Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders’ version of Venezuelan socialism to come to America?
Do you support the “Green New Deal”?
