If Cortez, Tlaib, Omar and Pressley are the standard bearers for the Democrat party, the party is in trouble. Moderates no likey these bints.
The poll of 1,003 likely general-election voters “who are white and have two years or less of college education” are the very Americans who imploded the so-called “Blue Wall” in the Midwest that allowed Republican Donald Trump to upset Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
In the internal Democratic Party poll, Axios reports, only 22 percent of these voters have a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, widely known as AOC. Only 18 percent of them positively view socialism, however they define socialism.
President Trump is stoking this apparent swing-voter view of “The Squad” by characterizing them as un-American.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” Trump tweeted over the weekend.
Despite criticism that Trump’s comments were racist and a call out to white nationalists, Republicans in Congress have remained silent or backed the president.
“We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Monday. He added that they “hate our own country.”
He did acknowledge that all of the members of “The Squad” are American citizens and that Omar is the only one of the four born outside the United States.
