AOC may be the most popular member of Congress, but that doesn’t mean that people like her.
According to a new Gallup poll, a majority of people have heard the name Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but have an “unfavorable” view of her.
Freshman lefty firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is more famous than many veteran members of Congress — but more Americans who know her don’t like her, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.
About seven in 10 people surveyed said they’ve heard of the first-term Queens-Bronx congresswoman — remarkable name recognition for a newcomer.
“It’s rare to have a new member of Congress who is so widely recognizable by the public so soon in her career on the Hill,” said Gallup’s Justin McCarthy, attributing her high name recognition to her out-sized presence on social media and intense media coverage.
But in its latest poll, conducted in February, Gallup found 41 percent viewed her unfavorably and just 31 percent had a positive view.
