Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is running the Democrat Party.
The freshmen Democrat and social media star is shoving the party to the left with her radical socialist agenda.
But she made this big mistake that is bad news for the Democrats in 2020.
Much has been made of Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.”
The communist proposal would eliminate cars, airplanes, and cows under the guise of fighting “global warming.”
Of course, the idea that human beings are “warming” the planet is a fake news hoax.
Ocasio-Cortez and her rogue gallery of big government thugs just want to ruin every aspect of Americans’ lives.
Their dream is a Venezuelan-style socialist state with a command-and-control economy run by central planners.
But Ocasio-Cortez and other socialists just got some very bad news.
A new Remington Research poll found Donald Trump’s “build the wall” agenda is more popular than the “Green New Deal.”
This poll found 51 percent of Americans believe Congress should put building a border wall as their top priority, compared to 31 percent who chose the “Green New Deal.”
Titus Bond – President of Remington Research Group – summarized the poll’s findings as well as the political dangers it poses for Democrats.
Respondents were also asked if they had to choose, whether they would prefer federal funding of a border wall or The Green New Deal. Over half (51%) of Americans say they would prefer the U.S. government fund a border wall, rather than The Green New Deal (31%). Independents would prefer a border wall to The Green New Deal by a 2-1 margin, while Republicans would prefer a border wall by a 68-point margin.
“The Green New Deal has presented an interesting situation for Democrats. Democratic voters support this legislation, while the rest of the country overwhelmingly opposes it. It will be intriguing to watch Democratic leaders and presidential hopefuls navigate this issue with their base while still appealing to mainstream voters,” said Titus Bond, President of Remington Research Group.
President Trump hammered this point home during an epic two-hour speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
He framed the upcoming 2020 election as a choice between his “Make America Great Again” agenda and a Democrat nominee adopting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radial socialist agenda.
“The Green New Deal, or whatever the hell they call it, I encourage it,” Trump declared. “No planes, no energy… When the wind stops blowing, that’s the end of your electric[ity].”
“This is the new Democratic platform… I don’t want to talk them out of it,” Trump continued. “I just want to be the Republican who runs against them.”
The polling data shows Trump is playing a winning hand.
But Democrats are trapped.
Major Presidential contenders like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders rushed to proclaim their support for the “Green New Deal.”
That’s because they hoped to win Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement for President.
In doing so, they could very well be sealing their own doom in the Presidential election.
