Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blames FOX, GOP, Dark Money Conspiracy–and Democrats–for Her 23 Percent Approval Rating

Socialist freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sees a conspiracy between Fox News, Republicans, the Mercers, dark money–and fellow Democrats–as the driving force behind her crushing unpopularity. A new Quinnipiac poll published Thursday found her with just a 23 percent approval rating overall and underwater across all demographics except Democrats. But even then she does not have the approval of a majority of Democrats.

Ocasio-Cortez became a media darling last year when the then 28-year-old bartender defeated incumbent Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in a stunning primary victory.

Since taking office in January Ocasio-Cortez has stumbled with the roll out of her Green New Deal and made several comments that revealed a brainwashed leftist who speaks like a teenager.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet about the poll that wondered why more Republicans have an opinion about her than do Democrats.

Ocasio-Cortez saw a conspiracy behind her unpopularity.

“It’s almost as though there is a directed + concerted far-right propaganda machine with a whole cable news channel, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by the Mercers et al dedicated to maligning me & stoking nat’l division, reported on by or something”

Ocasio-Cortez followed by agreeing with a supporter who also blamed Democrats for her unpopularity.

“The issue is that while right-wing media and GOP politicians are coordinating 24/7 in their war against you, many centrist Democrats and ostensibly Democrat-leaning media outlets are also working to undercut you as much as they can.”

“Word. But someone’s got to care about growing the Dem base: the thing ppl don’t realize is that the House is where you can build turnout infrastructure to win Presidentials. When we don’t invest in blue-seat organizing in the House, we don’t get the turnout we need every 4 years.”

Ocasio-Cortez cannot blame Time Magazine, which recently put her on the cover for a fawning profile with a Maoist homage photo.
