Despite the perceived rising stock of freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., a new poll found that the majority of likely voters in her district do not hold a favorable view of her.

The results of the poll conducted for the Stop the AOC PAC:

  • 43.4 percent have a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez.
  • 28.9 percent have an unfavorable view of her, with 20.5 percent saying they don't know enough about the 29-year-old to have an opinion either way.
  • A total of 92.8 percent of those polled said they recognized Ocasio-Cortez's name.
  • 61.7 percent, including 50.1 percent of Ocasio-Cortez supporters, said New York City would have been better off with Amazon's planned office complex in Queens. Ocasio-Cortez led a charge that ultimately led to Amazon pulling out of the deal.

"While AOC is busy preaching her loopy brand of green-socialism, the people in her district have deep-seated concerns about her," AOC PAC general counsel Dan Backer said. "Her 'success' in quashing the Amazon deal cost tens of thousands of jobs — many her own constituents could have used — and scuttled a major economic shot in the arm to her district.

"AOC put her self-serving radical, socialist agenda ahead of the people who voted for her. The data is clear: AOC can be beat, and our sustained efforts are going to do just that."

A recent Gallup poll, meanwhile, found that the public's view of Ocasio-Cortez continues to grow more negative.
