Even AOC thinks Democrats are in trouble in 2022

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks Democrats will face tough times in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections

In an interesting interview, the far-left AOC thinks the way to avoid a coming red wave is to spend a lot more and control the government on a range of issues.

Ocasio-Cortez made his remarks according to a New York Magazine article published Tuesday.

AOC: ‘It’s really about the collapse of support among young people, within the Democratic base’

AOC thinks Biden’s low approval rating means his party will do poorly, including Democrats losing the House.

His answer ? Go ever further to the left to excite the progressives.

“We have to recognize that this isn’t just a middle road, a narrowing band of independent voters,” Ocasio-Cortez told New York Magazine. “It’s really about the collapse of support among young people, among the Democratic base, who feel like they’ve worked overtime to get this president elected and aren’t necessarily being seen.”

The AOC and other members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus have encouraged Biden to address all sorts of leftist agenda items, from issuing executive orders to environmental regulations and easing immigration policies. cancellation of student loan debt.

The new class of far-left democrats are much more outspoken about their goals and strategies. The AOC openly expresses the belief that more government donations will turn into votes for Democrats:

“If the president goes ahead and starts governing decisively using executive action and other tools at his disposal, I think we’re in the game. But if we decide to sit down for the rest of the year and not change people’s lives, yes, I think we will have problems.

Ocasio-Cortez also lamented the “lack of Latino representation” at the national and local levels, calling it “shameful.”

“I think it’s really shameful, frankly, the lack of Latino representation,” she complained. “And the thing is, it’s not just about representing identity, it’s also about representing issues.”

AOC thinks even New York City Mayor Eric Adams has been disappointing — despite his Latin American hires.

“Frankly, even with the mayor, some of his Latino appointments have been homophobic and not representative of the interests of our broader community,” she said. “Even at the state level, there’s a huge lack of real representation of people fighting for Latinos.”

Biden’s approval remains low

An Axios-Ipsos survey conducted earlier in March found that Latino support for the Democratic Party had fallen due to inflation. Among Latino voters, Biden’s favor has fallen from 53% to 49% since December 2021.

A Grinnell College National Poll released on March 23 showed Biden’s approval, with the overall voters falling to 34%, mostly on jobs and the economy.
