Trump More Favorable New York AOC

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lower approval rating than President Donald J. Trump in the liberal stronghold of New York after she celebrated the city losing a contract with Amazon that would have resulted in new jobs and infrastructure.

Ocasio-Cortez celebrated last month when Amazon nixed its plans to build a new headquarters in New York City, writing on Twitter that “New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed,” however, new polling suggests the majority of New Yorkers disagree with her assessment.

New poll results from the Sienna College Research Institute reveals that Ocasio-Cortez only clocks in at 31 per cent of New Yorkers viewing her favorably, while the besieged president is viewed favorably by 36 per cent of the city.

Additionally, 38 per cent of those polled said they view Ocasio-Cortez as a “villain” for her role in the Amazon debacle. More residents considered Ocasio-Cortez a “villain” than any other person or group polled, including labor unions, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Governor Andrew Cuomo, or even Amazon itself. Only 26 per cent of those polled considered Amazon a “villain.”

61 per cent of those polled also view Cuomo’s attempt to incentivize Amazon to reconsider its decision in a positive light.

Ocasio-Cortez’s stunts may have an impact on the wider New York Democrat Party as well, as a plurality of those polled said that they do not believe New York is headed in the right direction after three months under Democrat control. This belief is held by 79 per cent of Republicans, 65 per cent of Independents, 26 per cent of Democrats, and 48 per cent of all residents who were polled.

While neither President Trump or Ocasio-Cortez are seen favorably by the majority of residents, or even 40 per cent, it is notable that the Democrat darling is seen less favorably than the president, who has been demonized by the media and Democrats for nearly four years.
