Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been in office for a few months but even voters in New York are already getting tired of her. In fact, according to new polling, Trump is viewed more favorably in the blue state than she is.
The Washington Examiner reports:
More NY voters view Trump favorably than Ocasio-Cortez: Poll
More registered voters in the state of New York view President Trump favorably than outspoken left-wing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., according to the latest poll numbers from the Siena College Research Institute.
While neither politician crossed the 40 favorability percent threshold, Trump had the backing of 36 percent of people surveyed, compared to Ocasio-Cortez’s 31 percent. Trump, though, triggered a larger group of people who viewed him unfavorably, 60 percent, compared to Ocasio-Cortez’s 44 percent. Large portions of those surveyed said they were unfamiliar with the first-term lawmaker representing Queens and the Bronx.
Ocasio-Cortez receives the majority of her support from New York City, while upstate voters and voters from the downstate suburbs view her unfavorably at nearly 50 percent each. The majority of voters in all three regions view Trump unfavorably.
In another related piece of news, a majority of New Yorkers blame Ocasio-Cortez for the failure of the Amazon deal and they’re not happy about it.

2/3 of Voters Say Amazon Cancelling Queens HQ Bad for NY
Loudonville, NY. By a 67-21 percent margin, New Yorkers say that Amazon cancelling its planned second headquarters in Queens was bad for New York. By as nearly as large a margin, 61-30 percent, they support the deal in which Amazon would receive up to $3 billion in state and city incentives and create up to 25,000 jobs if Amazon reconsiders, according to a new Siena College poll of New York State registered voters released today.
An overwhelming 79 percent of voters say parents should be required to have their children vaccinated before attending school, regardless of the parents’ religious beliefs. Voters continue to support making the two-percent property tax cap permanent, legalizing recreational use of marijuana, and eliminating monetary bail for misdemeanors and non-violent felonies. They are split on congestion pricing, and by a nearly two-to-one margin, they oppose allowing undocumented immigrants to get a New York driver’s license…
“Who do New Yorkers blame? Well, there’s certainly blame enough to go around. More people think that Amazon, Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, the State Senate, and local Queens activists were villains in this saga than they were heroes. However, voters say the biggest villain was Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Someone needs to run against her next year and give New Yorkers a choice to vote her out of office.
