Democrats pushing for AOC to run against Trump in 2024

Some Democrats are now pushing for a more extreme option to represent the party in 2024, calling New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the “best shot” against former President Donald Trump.

The new view was presented in an article by Michael Starr Hopkins, who served on the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The case

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is less of a personality and more of a movement. Yes, the smart, photogenic congresswoman is the face of the rising progressive movement, but she is also the future of the Democratic Party. AOC has cultivated a following beyond politics. She’s an influencer in its purest form,” Starr wrote.

“Her ability to relate to her supporters and allow them a glimpse into her private life is a blueprint for Democrats trying to act less like mannequins and more like humans,” Starr added.

The concern

AOC is a squad member who has advocated for defunding the police, open borders and Medicare for all. That may not really be the best hope for Democrats in the days ahead.

Biden presented himself as a moderate Democrat, though he has pushed a more radical agenda than originally expected by many. The results have been dismal, both for his approval ratings and for the nation’s economy.

The op-ed was so far-fetched that many readers wondered if it was intended as satire.

Ocasio-Cortez as a presidential candidate is a bad idea and seems to be more of a smoke screen for those covering up concerns of the Biden administration.
