Here we are again folks, talking about the one and only lady of drama, and first lady of ridiculous comments and ideas. Yet she’s wondering now why people aren’t liking her. Can anyone guess who we are talking about? I’ll give you a moment, but cow farts might ring a bell.
That’s right, we are talking once again about your lovely Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s been the constant face on most mainstream news outlets since she first came onto the scene. From ranting attacks, to trying to ban farting cows, she’s no stranger to the limelight of drama central.
Now that Ocasio-Cortez has become more well-known all over the country, it seems her approval rating has take an “unfavorable” turn for the worse. You would think something ballooning would be a good thing, it means it’s getting bigger, like having a ballooning bank account.
However, for Ocasio-Cortez, it’s her unfavorable rating that is ballooning instead. Whoops.

The poll was released on Friday, and it found that the increase in Ocasio-Cortez’s “unfavorable” rating in recent months has more than doubled her increase in “favorable ratings.” For some this isn’t such a shock, but for Ocasio-Cortez herself, well, she was shocked indeed, and wasn’t happy about it.
New source from Gallup reported that: “Half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today. But the increased visibility has not improved her overall standing with Americans.”
Here’s a closer look at just how big of a swing it really is. In September, Ocasio-Cortez’s favorable vs unfavorable rating was so close at 24% and 26% respectively, yet now it stands at 31% and 41% respectively. That’s a big shift, and one that will likely keep trending if she carries on the way she has been.
Gallup also reported that: “The congresswoman is viewed negatively by most Republicans, of whom 73% have an unfavorable view of her up from 52% in September. Ocasio-Cortez is also underwater in her net favorable ratings among men (-24), whites (-24) and adults aged 55 and older (-22).”
Gallup: As Americans become more familiar with AOC, the more unfavorably they view her. Her net favorable rating has dropped from -2 to -10, now at to 31-41 (was 24-26). AOC's net favorable rating dropped among men, women, independents, Republicans, and every age group. pic.twitter.com/5vG8XEo337 — Happy St. Ratio'd Day (@NumbersMuncher) March 16, 2019
As you can imagine, from her past responses to people not liking her, or disagreeing with her ideas or statements, Ocasio-Cortez was furious and blamed it on a conspiracy, or foolish nonsense. She plays the victim and tries to deflect from the actual issue at hand, herself.
Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter as she always does and tries to defame the source of the news. She went on to say:
“If you want to know what subconscious bias looks like, it’s a headline saying ‘AOC is underwater with every group EXCEPT women, nonwhites, and 18-34 year olds. So older, conservative white men are considered ‘everyone’ and everyone else is discounted as an exception. Cool The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into ‘AOC TMZ’ (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers. @JaneMayerNYer has reported deeply on this propaganda machine + it will be aimed at any Dem they want. Nothing changes that. We can’t be scared by that.”
Is she delusional, or just plain lacking some brain cells up there.

Ocasio-Cortex has had her share of embarrassment along the way, she blames others for it, but essentially it’s her own fault. She has had multiple complaints filed against her or people on her staff alleging potential campaign finance violations. Even just this week Ocasio-Cortez made a fool of herself while questioned Wells Fargo’s CEO.
Just last week she stated that the state of America was garbage, all while suggesting that corporations should be taxed at 90% and said that Americans should be “excited” about losing their jobs to robots. I mean seriously, she can’t be serious.
If you have been following her, there’s really no wonder why her approval rating has dropped so much. Maybe she’ll see the issue, and work to fix it, but we doubt it.
