Ironic isn’t it?
After AOC mocked Middle America and our over representation, due to lack of population, it is HER district that may be over represented.
- AOC calls the Electoral College a ‘scam’ and says the system is ‘racist’
- RBG Crushes AOC’s Dreams of Abolishing Electoral College: “More Theoretical Than Real”
- AOC shrieks at Fox News in ignorant rant on Electoral College
Now, whether she wins reelection, or not, it might actually be AOC’s district that is over represented in congress and maybe one other in New York.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could soon be out of her government job. Due to the high number of non-citizens in her district, it might be eliminated after the census.
Wouldn’t that be ironic?

From the report at The City:
AOC MAKES A BRONX CENSUS PUSH AMID FEARS OF LOST HOUSE SEATS
For Ocasio-Cortez, a full Census count is more than a matter of making sure her district gets all the funds and services it’s due. In a sense, her own political fortunes could hang in the balance.
A review by THE CITY, building on data and analysis by The Texas Tribune, suggests Ocasio-Cortez’ district could be particularly vulnerable to undercount because a little over a quarter of those living there are non-citizens.
That’s a higher percentage than any other congressional district in the state.
A Census undercount in Ocasio-Cortez’ district and elsewhere in the state could lead to the elimination of congressional districts — potentially setting off politically charged redistricting battles.
New York already is on track to lose up to two congressional seats during reapportionment due to population decline and slower rate of growth, according to a December report by Election Data Services.
There has been some question with AOC’s challengers and whether or not they can or even should defeat her.
- WARNING: Republican Scherie Murray, One of AOC’s Challengers, Voted for OBAMA TWICE and Congratulated AOC Last Year
Scherie Murray, for instance, seems like she could be a liberal in conservative garb.
Even if she wins, does America win?
Anyone who voted for Obama twice and calls themselves a Republican has to raise some concern.
People do change, in Murray’s defense, but a redistricting mandate would certainly solve the problem without us ever having to find out.
At the very least we would have -1-2 less New York liberals in congress, whether AOC was eliminated or some other lib(s).
