Recently from anonymous sources from within the Democratic party website Axios received information about the outcome of the may poll, which showed that among whites without a College education is extremely low is a rating of the representatives of the liberal wing members of Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
The first of them has the support of only 22% of voters, the second only 9%, and this despite the fact that have heard of them, respectively, 74% and 53% of the respondents. The study also shows that only 18% are supporters of socialism (and Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America), while 56% are in favor of the capitalist model.
“If about Alexandria knew all this would put at risk the preservation of the majority in the House of representatives, — admitted one of the Democrats. — Because it is often said in the press, and the attitude towards it depends on the outcome of elections in many districts.”
However, some sociologists have noted that the opinion of one group of voters still plays a decisive role, especially in this category, less popular and more moderate members of the party, including Joseph Biden, the leader among all presidential candidates. Besides, it is not known what methodology was a survey, since many respondents are not only supporters of Donald trump, but live in districts where the very strong positions of the Republicans.
It is not excluded that the leak was the result of the conflict between liberals and party leaders, including speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi, the variance in views on a range of issues — including the fight against climate change and reforming the immigration system. Such an assumption is made Waleed Shahid, Director of the relations Department of the organization of the Justice Democrats who last year supported Ocasio-Cortez. Anyway, the results of the survey drew the attention of President Donald trump, noting how unpopular the liberals are.
Earlier, Pelosi said Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Ayanna pressly and Rashida Talib “live in a world of Twitter and do not enjoy real support”. In response, Ocasio-Cortez accused her of undue attention to Congresswoman, are ethnic minority women, although later stated that he does not consider the speaker a racist.
Criticism Ocasio-Cortez and Justice Democrats also voiced by members of the Congressional Black Caucus who are unhappy with the support given to the candidates who contested in the primaries with legislators African American. Omar expressed his disagreement with the party establishment as such.
“We don’t need to be invited to become leaders, she said. — Those who are in power, we are engaged in a constant struggle for the separation of powers and does not intend to ask that we be given the opportunity to direct. We take power into their own hands and return it to the people.”
