Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appears to be a legitimate national star and a future presidential contender among a vast majority of Democrats and Democratic-leaning adults.
The 29-year-old New York Democratic is not yet allowed to spearhead a 2020 White House run, but a new Axios-SurveyMonkey poll suggests she should at age 35.
Survey results from 2,277 U.S. adults interviewed Jan. 16-18 show 74 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning adults willing to pull the lever for the self-described democratic socialist on a future Election Day, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
A deeper dive into the numbers include 17 percent who say they would “definitely” vote for Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.
Axios-SurveyMonkey’s poll was conducted Jan. 16-18 has a 3.5 percentage point margin for error.
The numbers come less than 24 hours after her appearance on CBS’ “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert, which included a question about intraparty criticism of her rhetoric.
“On a scale of zero to some, how many f—s do you give?” the host asked.
“I think it’s zero,” she replied.
