In a hilarious turn, according to a new poll, President Trump now has a higher favorability rating among New Yorkers than socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In a poll of about 700 registered voters, the Siena College Research Institute found 36 percent said they had a favorable view of Trump, compared with 31 percent who said they had a favorable view of AOC.
In fact, AOC also ranked lower in favorability than Sen. Chuck Schumer (51 percent), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (43 percent), and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio (34 percent).
Conversely, though, the poll did find that Trump also drew a more unfavorable crowd at about 60 percent, compared to AOC’s 44 percent.
From the poll, it certainly looks like AOC’s battle against Amazon was a driving factor in her unfavorable rating. While the freshman congresswoman remained vocal in her opposition to Amazon building a new headquarters facility in Queens, the poll found that more than two-thirds of polled voters saw the deal’s failure as a bad thing for the state, while 61 percent said they’d be open to Amazon reconsidering its decision.
When asked about who they blame for the deal going sour, the majority of those polled named AOC more than any other politician.
