OUCH: Internal Dem Poll Reveals AOC, Omar Wildly Unpopular

A Democratic internal poll reveals that Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are wildly unpopular among swing voters.

Axios reports:

The poll — taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi’s latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as “The Squad” — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education….

    • Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
    • Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view
    • Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.
    • Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.

The Axios report claims Democrats are “sounding the alarm” that swing voters do not like socialism and are warning these sentiments could hinder their chances at a 2020 presidential win and maintaining their majority in the House of Representatives.

One “top Democrat” told Axios, “If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk. [S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.”

The Democrat also warned that socialism was “toxic to these voters.”
