AOC will lose reelection. She’s a social liberal media superstar — but a survey of Democrats in her Bronx-Queens 14th District has found that Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is vulnerable to a re-election challenge.
Anger directed at Ocasio-Cortez over Amazon’s decision to back out of a deal for a headquarters and campus in Long Island City has created an opening for a challenger to pound her as anti-jobs and anti-business, said Dan Backer, founder of Stop The AOC.
The Post previously reported that the anti-AOC group was spending money to gauge opposition to her in the district. Voters were also asked if they believe AOC spends more time focusing on social media than helping New Yorkers in her district. The results found that 40% said AOC is helping her district more, 22% said she’s focusing on social media more, and the remaining 38% were unsure.
