AOC may find herself kicked to the curb

With the significant demographic shift happening in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might soon find herself out of a job. Here's an excerpt from the linked article:

Socialist blue New York is seeing its locals fleeing to other states, and with those kind of losses, someone's congressional seat has got to go.

Whose seat is on the block? The Daily Wire has a report:
According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state's Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez's Bronx district for elimination because she's been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control the process.

"New York is expected to lose a House seat after the 2020 Census, and state Democrats are looking to draw out @AOC's district," Luntz wrote on Twitter. He included a link to an article from a local New York City magazine, The City, that suggested the Ocasio-Cortez is doubling down on her efforts to encourage her constituents to fill out the 2020 census so that she can stay in office.

But the real message is in the hard fact that New York is losing people, and that loss is firmly rooted in Ocasio-Cortez's animating philosophy: socialism. Socialism the world over drives people to flight. This is as true in New York as it is in Venezuela, China, Russia, North Korea, and Cuba.

And Ocasio-Cortez herself was directly responsible for some of the drive-out, based on her halting of a highly sought Amazon operation in her district. Amazon explicitly stated that Ocasio-Cortez's statements are what made the company change its mind and go someplace less hostile to business. She also drove out other investors, ridiculously claiming that their jobs weren't good enough, not "dignified jobs," as if to say that no jobs is better than jobs she claims to be underpaid or unimportant. Residents in her district have commented on that drive-out, and they weren't happy. And Amazon was just one of them. There were many others.
It may be too much to hope that a nasty barnacle like AOC might be out on her ass, but a man can dream. I, for one, am hoping for a huge reckoning against House Democrats—especially AOC and her contemptible Squad—this coming election.

While we're on the subject of disappearing politicians... bye, Julian. Good riddance.

UPDATE: coincidentally (or not), Tim Pool just talked about major demographic shifts and their political implications, which don't bode well for the Democrats:

The shift doesn't bode well for Republicans, either, because the clueless idiots fleeing socialist-accented states will be bringing their leftist voting habits with them, thereby polluting whatever right-leaning, pro-free-market area they end up in.

Well, nothing would preclude AOC from challenging an incumbent in whatever remaining district in which she resides. While she is a hero for the crazy socialists, I too wonder how the home voters really feel about her.

I'm hearing that her home district doesn't like her. But that only makes me wonder how she got elected to begin with. Don't people realize that electing an avowed socialist will always lead to buyer's remorse?
