It seems like only yesterday that AOC dominated the news. But now she is old news. As Trump puts it, she is no longer the face of the Democrat Party. Aside from Tlaib and Omar stealing the spotlight, there could be more to her drop in popularity, as it seems she hasn’t been doing her job. The New York Post tried calling all of the New York Reps and AOC’s phone is the only one where you get redirected to her website as opposed to a live person. And in a completely unrelated matter…there is also a poll that shows she may have trouble winning again in her district.
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the only member of the New York City delegation who doesn’t have a staff member picking up the phone regularly.
The Post called the offices of all 13 lawmakers representing New York City – even those in high-profile positions like Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler – and a real person answered the call on every occasion, in every office location, except for calls dialed to AOC’s two offices.
Critics of Ocasio-Cortez suggest making constituents play phone tag is proof that she’s more show pony than workhorse.
“She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” one Congressional Democratic aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead.”
“What kind of elitist nonsense is that?” the aide said. “Shameful, it’s all shameful.”
“Poll numbers from within Ocasio-Cortez’s district have yielded similar negative results about how people there view her.
A door-to-door poll from Stop The AOC PAC yielded the following key results:
They don’t like her. She has a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (50.88%) to favorable (21.37%) in public opinion.
They don’t trust her. Only 10.75% thought she had their best interests in mind in quashing the Amazon deal – 32.60% said she didn’t.
They don’t want her. 33.44% are ready to vote against her, and only 13.30% would vote for her.”
Could it be… Could this be a sign that we will soon be through with obnoxious AOC? We can only hope that she is on her way out. If we are really lucky maybe she can take her squad with her.
