Nancy Pelosi Losing Grip: One Fourth Of Democrats Vote With AOC
Voting records using ProPublica data tools show that 68 democratic lawmakers voted with Ocasio-Cortez at least 95 percent of the times since January. That number represent over a fourth of all seats held by Democrats.
This comes one week, after Nancy Pelosi spoke to Lesley Stahl on ’60 Minutes’, where she pushed back to the idea that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and few others would be able to push the party to the left towards socialism. “That’s like five people,” Pelosi said.
Fox News which reviewed the data, found out that the lawmakers voting in tandem with the New York Democrat aren’t just freshman lawmakers, but include a number of other high-profile Democrats.
