Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made nonstop headlines for her steady stream of epic gaffes. And those blunders have taken a serious toll on her popularity, based on her sinking poll numbers.
According to a March 28 Quinnipiac poll, 36 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, while just 23 percent hold a favorable view.
The remaining 44 percent say they haven’t heard enough about AOC to form an opinion.
Only 23% of Americans Have Favorable View of AOC
Not surprisingly, the opinions were deeply divided along party lines. While 74 percent of Republicans hold a negative view of AOC, just 2 percent have a favorable opinion of her.
As expected, Ocasio Cortez fared better among Democrats: 47 percent have a favorable opinion of her, while 7 percent hold an unfavorable view.
A meager 33 percent of Americans believe Ocasio Cortez has been good for the Democrat Party, while 36 percent say she has been bad for the party.
‘All Is Definitely Not A-OK for AOC’
Tim Malloy, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, says AOC’s plunging poll numbers suggest that Americans are getting fed-up with her nonsensical chatter and her laughable war on farting cows.
“All is definitely not A-OK for AOC,” Malloy said in a statement. “Most voters either don’t like the firebrand freshman Congresswoman or don’t know who she is.”
Ocasio Cortez has repeatedly slammed conservatives for calling her out whenever she gets caught being hypocritical or betraying her udder ignorance of economics and politics.

Republicans: AOC Is the Gift That Keeps On Giving
Since AOC insists on blaming conservative media for her tanking popularity, they were delighted to take credit.

‘Like, You Know, Whatever!’
If you ask conservative journalists and commentators, many will admit that they spotlight AOC as much as possible.
The reasons are two-fold: The first is to alert the public of her dangerous, ridiculous policy ideas.
The second reason is to foment resentment and jealousy among her fellow Democrats — all of whom are competing with AOC for media attention and want to raise their profiles both nationally and within the Democrat Party.
AOC Makes April Fool’s Cover of Time Magazine
The left-wing media are playing along, too. As HVY reported, Time magazine put AOC on the cover of its April Fool’s issue.
Was this a coincidence or a conspiracy? Only time will tell. So stay tuned.
