Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is vulnerable to a re-election challenge, a survey conducted by an anti-AOC political action committee claims.
The survey, conducted by the "Stop the AOC" PAC, showed 47% of the Democrats have a positive view about the polarizing young Democrat, with 29% unfavorably and 24% unsure, reports the N.Y. Post.
But voters still seem angry about Ocasio-Cortez's actions leading to Amazon's decision to back out of a deal for a large headquarters and campus in Long Island City. When asked if they supported her efforts to "ruin the Amazon deal that would have created 25,000 jobs in the neighborhood," 37% said yes, 35% said no, and 28% were unsure.
"The argument against AOC is Amazon, Amazon, and also Amazon," Dan Backer, the founder of Stop The AOC, said.
In other questions, respondents were asked if Ocasio-Cortez spends too much time online:
- 40% said AOC helps her district more than she spends time focusing on social media.
- 22% said she focuses on social media more.
- 38% were unsure.
The respondents were also mixed about supporting a primary challenger:
- 26% said likely or somewhat likely.
- 43% said unlikely.
- Nearly one-third were undecided.
Canvassers knocked on doors of 5,400 Democratic households, interviewing 817 registered Democrats.
The survey also claimed one-third of the Democrats are open to supporting a Republican rather than Ocasio-Cortez.
"After surveying voters in 817 Democratic homes in the district, it's clear Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is not sitting well with the voters she was elected to serve. The opportunity for a new voice is prevalent in the Democratic primary, and the electorate is ready to take action in 2020," said Justin Greiss, of Mobilize the Message, whose group conducted the survey for the STOP the AOC group.
