Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., received poor results in a recent poll from Quinnipiac University, with less than a quarter giving her a favorable rating.
- 23 percent gave AOC a favorable rating
- 36 percent gave AOC an unfavorable rating
- 38 percent said they didn’t know enough about her to decide
- 36 percent said AOC is a bad influence on the Democratic Party
- 33 pecent said AOC is a good influence on the party
Quinnipiac notes that the only age group that gave AOC positive favorability numbers was voters age 18-34.
“All is definitely not A-OK for AOC. Most voters either don’t like the firebrand freshman congresswoman or don’t know who she is,” Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director, said in a statement.
Ocasio-Cortez has responded to her results in recent polls on Twitter, after one user noted that less than a quarter of Republicans in the poll haven’t heard enough of the congresswoman to make an opinion, compared to almost half of Democrats who haven’t.
“It’s almost as though there is a directed, concerted far-right propaganda machine with a whole cable news channel, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by the Mercers et al dedicated to maligning me & stoking nat’l division, reported on by [the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer] or something,” she wrote on Thursday.
Quinnipiac polled 1,358 likely voters across the country from March 21-25, and has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
