Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez often boasts about her “power” and how she’s the future of the Democratic Party.
It’s no secret that Democratic lawmakers have grown tired of Ocasio-Cortez and her never-ending stunts.
And a rare opportunity could give Democrats the chance to remove her from office without a single vote being cast.
Pollster Frank Luntz took to Twitter to share a rather harrowing reality for Ocasio-Cortez, saying, “New York is expected to lose a House seat after the 2020 Census, and state Democrats are looking to draw out @AOC’s district.”

The 2020 Census is coming, which means that over a quarter of those living in Ocasio-Cortez’s district are illegal immigrants with no legal right to live in America.
As such, Ocasio-Cortez’s district may ultimately be redrawn and she may be pushed out of her congressional seat.
Here’s the details from The City:
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 under count in Ocasio-Cortez’ district and elsewhere in the state could lead to the elimination of congressional districts — potentially setting off politically charged redistricting battles.
Assuming her district remains and isn’t drawn out, Ocasio-Cortez is already in big trouble with her own constituents.
A recent survey polled Democrats in her Bronx-Queens 14th District, and Ocasio-Cortez is very vulnerable to a re-election challenge.
The survey found that 47 percent of Democrats in the 14th Congressional District view AOC favorably — but 29 percent view her unfavorably and 25 percent are unsure.
In other words, a whopping 54 percent of voters in her district either dislike her or haven’t been able to come around to liking her.
When voters were asked if they supported Ocasio-Cortez’s efforts to “ruin the Amazon deal that would have created 25,000 jobs in the neighborhood,” 37 percent said “yes,” 35 percent said “no,” and 28 percent were “unsure.”
Voters are also angry over Ocasio-Cortez pushing Amazon to back out of a deal for a headquarters and campus in Long Island City, making it clear she is anti-jobs and anti-business.
The survey also found that a third of Democrats were open to supporting a Republican challenger in the 2020 general election.
This is the second time it has become clear Ocasio-Cortez could seriously lose re-election.
According to Federal Election Commission data, almost no one from Ocasio-Cortez’s district is donating to her re-election campaign.
Over 99 percent of AOC’s reported contributors to her reelection campaign in the first half of 2019 came from people who do not live in her congressional district.
Just 10 individuals living in her district in the first half of 2019.
If her own constituents aren’t donating to AOC, that’s a big problem because it may result in many not voting for her reelection.
In recent months, AOC has also found herself in legal trouble for violating ethics rules.
The allegations against Ocasio-Cortez are so serious that Brad Smith, a former FEC commissioner, said the New York socialist lawmaker “could be facing jail time.”
With all of this considered, it’s more than clear that AOC’s political future is in serious jeopardy.
