Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Unfavorable Poll Numbers, Says Fox News Has Turned Into ‘AOC TMZ’

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knocked Fox News’ coverage in responding to a poll on her favorability numbers.

A new Gallup poll puts her overall numbers at 31% favorable, 41% unfavorable, up from 24-26 this past September.

Ocasio-Cortez responded this afternoon by noting how she has net favorable ratings in the poll with women, nonwhites, and 18-34-year-olds.

She has a net -24 favorability with men, -24 with whites, and net negatives with people 35 and older, but has a net +4 with women, +20 with nonwhites, and +5 with people 18-34.

Ocasio-Cortez said a factor in her unfavorable numbers is that “Fox News has turned into ‘AOC TMZ’ (no offense to TMZ).”
