Poll: New Yorkers Consider Ocasio-Cortez A Villain In Amazon Pullout By Wide Margins

Nearly 40 percent of New Yorkers believe Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the villain rather than the hero in Amazon’s recent decision to pull out of the state, according to a poll published Monday.

Only 12 percent of state citizens consider the New York Democrat a savior for leading the charge against a deal that would have brought the online company to the Empire State, the Siena College poll found. Pollsters asked citizens who was the hero, villain or role player in the matter.
