I'll guarantee the dims won't make that mistake the next go round. Nancy and Chuck want mind-numbed robots that vote the way they tell them, not some batshit crazy lunatic that goes out and exposes their agenda to the masses.


And as if that's not bad enough, the "batshit cray lunatic" chased off a HUGE Amazon center, that would have brought BILLIONS of dollars of financial support to the area. If for no other reason than THAT, she should be taken on a "fishing trip" in the Long Island Sound, and thrown overboard, with a 500 pound rock, tied to her ankles.....

You missed the point entirely. SHE HAS NO VOTER BASE. As just said in a previous post, with the last name of Cortez, she won a 50% Hispanic district that had almost zero turnout. Even at that, she received 25% less votes than the D candidate did in 2016.

You didn't answer my question. Do you personally know a single individual who would vote for her?

Losing an election brings about party soul-searching and a rise from the fringe aspects. The people behind AOC are the Justice Democrats (see JusticeDemocrats.com). They are an offshoot of Bernie's losing campaign - and represent the far left of the Democratic party. THEY ARE NOT GOING AWAY. With AOC as their front 'man', Justice Democrat's agenda is being pushed hard as a 'litmus test' for progressives.

There is a striking resemblance to events that occurred shortly after the Republicans lost to Obama. Far right elements of the party were incensed and believed the pubs lost because of a failure to embrace a more conservative stance. The Tea Party was born and their ultra-conservative ideals quickly were viewed as a litmus test for 'true conservatism.' While the strength of the movement diminished, it's impact was strong for several years.

Do some reading on the Justice Democrats. AOC didn't start the movement, she was recruited to be one of the first public faces. Her lack of experience has ZERO to do with anything. Her chief of staff is Saikat Chakrabarti, former Executive Director of Justice Democrats. He is the real power behind the movement.

I'd love to see her debate period. She ran her mouth saying Ben Shapiro was scared of her, then when he offered to debate her she claimed he was somehow sexist and refused to debate. So he offered to donate $10,000 to the charity of her choice if she would agree to debate. She chickened out.

Today? Yes.

California had more Bernie votes than what were counted, because the Dem Party fixed the Primary to drop likely Bernie voters out of party registration and into provisional ballots (that went uncounted). These disgruntled Bernie voters are already praising AOC as a POTUS Candidate on social media. Yes, I know some of these potential AOC voters because they are teachers at my kid's School (it comes with the territory). These people may be misguided, but they voted Obama and Bernie (and Hillary under protest) and would vote for AOC if she was eligible.

Who do you think will motivate more voters to "dump Trump", Elizabeth Warren or AOC? You don't need to be worried about what she knows, doesn't know, her inexperience, her lack of anything resembling a qualification... you should probably be worried about her ability to motivate.
Anyone with at least one brain cell would choose anyone over that clueless egotistic woman.
The only people she appeals to are the entitled group and the brain washed young adults people such as you have turned out.
