Bronx Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been propped up as the icon of the latest generation of radical leftists.

But now that generation is screaming, not so fast.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s biggest constituency just spit in Democrats’ faces.

The leader of “the Squad,” Democrat New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is dumbfounded after learning her voters won’t put their money where their big mouths are to end the “climate crisis.” 

Ocasio-Cortez made a name for herself by pushing for extreme “green” measures at the expense of the economy and even Americans’ individual freedom, like her signature legislation – the so-called “Green New Deal.”

Campaign is failing

From the moment it was introduced, AOC’s signature legislation has been widely panned as an industry-killing, freedom-stealing, goodie bag of handouts to the solar and wind lobbies and other friends of the Democrat Party.

The five-page bill would kill tens of thousands of good-paying careers and balloon energy prices well beyond the increases American workers have already experienced under President Joe Biden’s watch.

Since first introducing the disastrous plan alongside Democrat Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts back in 2019, the radical duo of environmental extremists have been unable to pass their job killing legislation.

AOC and Markey – along with their colleagues and followers – have faced wide criticism for trying to use the environment as an excuse to control American families.

And they’ve been able to convince huge swaths of left-wing voters that the “climate crisis” is the most pressing issue in the world today. 

Especially young Democrats. 

A Pew Research Center poll from last August found that 78% of Democrat voters believe “climate change” is a “major threat to America’s wellbeing.” 

The survey also found nearly six in ten Democrat respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 are in favor of completely moving away from all fossil fuels as soon as possible. 

Anecdotally, climate activists are constantly protesting to let their concerns for the environment be known by the masses. 

However, while they may be willing to deface historic documents and art, close down highways, or interrupt events, a new survey shows they aren’t willing to put their money where their over-educated mouths are. 

Youth apparently put economic realities first

The Daily Mail is reporting a new poll by CRC Research which found that about half of voters between the ages of 18 and 34 are not willing to spend more than $10 per month to combat climate change. 

That’s so little it could be covered by simply canceling a single digital subscription. 

Furthermore, 45% said they’d be willing to spend less than $10 to supposedly save the planet. 

They could find that money by making one less trip to Starbucks each month. 

And another 20% said they aren’t willing to spend a dime to help the environment. 

When looking at all ages, 42% said they wouldn’t spend anything on the climate, and another 18% said they would only be willing to spend less than $10. 

That’s 60% of voters who think the “climate crisis” is worth $10 or less a month of their personal funds.

“With 60% of Americans unwilling to spend more than $0 to $10 per month to reduce the impact of climate change, these results should serve as a wake-up call,” CEO of American Energy Institute Jason Isaac said. “The American people are sending a clear message: they don’t want to foot the bill for Biden’s kooky and costly climate policies.”

One would think if climate change is the existential threat to life as we know it, as Democrats would have American voters believe, the climate alarmists who care so much about the issues would be willing to sacrifice a single trip to the Sushi bar each month to end the “crisis.”
