Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tossed herself to the ground and banged on the floor with her hands and feet in a terrible teenage tantrum because people just don’t like her all that much.
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.”— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 16, 2019
So older, conservative white men are considered “everyone” and everyone else is discounted as an exception.
Cool 👍🏽 https://t.co/qkwTknMYhC
NumbersMuncher, who is a pretty good twitter follow for conservatives, was merely pointing out that AOC was doing terribly among most demographics. AOC is flipping out and screaming every “ism” she can find.
And she’s blaming Fox News:
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.

BUT, as NumbersMuncher points out, the poll is way worse than what she describes:
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).— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) March 16, 2019

And he specifically addresses AOC’s objection:
I did delete the other tweet because everyone said it was unfair to the data which made me a misogynist, so here it is again... the numbers are the same, the message is the same, and AOC still dropped almost everywhere as you can see in the images below. https://t.co/9IGdJvGaIG— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) March 16, 2019
Gallup does take this into account.— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) March 16, 2019
The problem is that AOC is +4 among women while -24 among men.
AOC is +20 among 'nonwhites' but -24 among whites.
AOC is +5 among 18-34, but -9 among 35-54 and -22 among 55+
That's why, as a whole, she is still -10 in favorability. https://t.co/vg0TAhsG7Q
Oops!! Unfortunately socialism is pretty popular among the American yutes. But even Ocasio-Cortez is too stupid for their liking. And I don’t think you can blame all of that on Fox News…
