SHOCK POLL: New Yorkers View Ocasio-Cortez as City’s ‘Biggest Villain’ After Amazon Disaster

A recent poll published by Siena College spelled bad news for Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week; showing most New Yorkers view the liberal politician as the city’s “biggest villain” following the recent Amazon headquarters disaster.

“According to a newly published poll from Siena College, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is seen as New York’s ‘biggest villain’ when it comes to Amazon’s decision to spurn New York and pull part of its second headquarters out of Long Island City,” reports Fox News.

“Who do New Yorkers blame? Well, there’s certainly blame enough to go around. More people think that Amazon, Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, the State Senate, and local Queens activists were villains in this saga than they were heroes,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said. “However, voters say the biggest villain was Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Only 12 percent call her hero, while 38 percent label her a villain.”

“Amazon itself was seen as the biggest villain among Democrats, but Republicans and independents had Ocasio-Cortez as far and away the largest villain, followed by the local Queens activists,” added the statement.
