While newly-elected freshmen Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have quickly become the face of a new, far-left sect of the Democratic Party, the results of a new internal poll indicates that their popularity may be short lived.
The poll, which was conducted among swing-state Democrats in May, indicated that while 53% recognized Ilhan Omar, only 9% had a favorable view of her performance in Congress.
74% of Democrats polled recognized Ocasio-Cortez, with only 22% of them holding positive opinions.
New internal Democrat poll reported on by Axios:

Conservatives on social media were not surprised by the results, and urged the mainstream media to give more airtime to both Ocasio-Cortez and Omar.
On point. The more visibility AOC has, the more democrats are defined as the party of socialism. Fortunately, most folks still remember parts of Soviet and East Block history.

If the legacy media suddenly starts losing interest in AOC’s latest plea for attention, we’ll know why.https://t.co/S0ZW5okcMA

I’m sure it’s because of racism, sexism or some other -ism. Definitely not for the idiotic things they say

This is why Republicans, @TuckerCarlson, Trump and Conservatives should continue to obsess over them. Bait them. They love the attention.
It will only result in pain for Democratic Party.

Oh, don’t worry about ‘the Squad’…the Dem Party has ‘wheels in motion’ to ‘primary’ them. Their 15 minutes will be over soon. All are too dim-witted to realize they are in over their heads. Keep talking girls…
