The “squad” represents less than 1% of the House of Representatives.

They seem to have torn a page out of Trump’s playbook to obtain more than their fair share of attention.

It takes too much efforts to define "moderate" on a forum like this. I simply don't want to hijack the thread , nor am I interested to open another can of worms. Start a new thread and I will participate.

So I will pass.

For those who voted "Don't Know" --

No, the great majority of Independents do NOT like AOC and Omar. Post after post after post by moderates state this. (As a moderate, I know who many of my fellow moderates are, and unless I missed some posts favorable to AOC/Omar, they are unanimous in their dislike.)

Conservative media has given them more than their fair share of attention no diff than Liberal media gave Trump more than his fair share of attention.

So what makes you a moderate?

Do you support the current system of the worst labor rights in the industrialized world and being the only country without a national health care system? If so, how is that moderate? Who do you usually vote for? And who are their major big money donors who they serve?

Now they are sympathetic persons to most Americans.
Most folk are not glued to cable news entertainment or political media.

That's only because money rules in politics, and she is nowhere near as steeped in big money corruption as the Wall Street and California big shots who rule Congress.

Every party has "undesirables", but AOC and Omar are setting a new standard for scary, crazy politicians that strike fear into normal people. Open borders, communism and Muslim terrorists- that will play well!
I was not aware that either advocated for government take over of all business and housing. Did I miss something?

Libs: Do you think most Americans like AOC and Omar?
Can't speak for 'libs', and neither rep is in my district (so I don't care), but it is fun to see how some junior reps keep the entire GOP fully occupied talking nothing else but them.

You should have included option "Irrelevant" to your poll, because that is how vast majority of people see them.

IMO, the GOP is overplaying their hand trying to get everyone believe they are the "face of the Dems". I know you believe it, but Americans in general are not so easily played. As a matter of fact it is somewhat insulting they assume people are that stupid.
