Four controversial, ultra-left members of Congress who call themselves “The Squad” have gotten significant news coverage in recent weeks, but are relatively unknown outside of political circles.
That’s according to a recent poll by ScottRasmussen.com.
The members of Congress who call themselves “The Squad” are: Democrats Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
Critics of “The Squad” accuse them of taking positions and making statements that are anti-American, anti-Semitic and racist. However, “The Squad” accuses President Trump and others of being racist, homophobic and more.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of those polled either aren’t sure what the political leanings of “The Squad” are. Fewer than half knew that the members are “extremely progressive.”
- 44% unsure what “The Squad” represents
- 42% say they are “extremely progressive”
- 8% say they are “bi-partisan moderates”
- 6% say they are “extremely conservative”
In other poll results, 42% said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, better represents the party than does Ocasio-Cortez. Twenty percent (20%) say Ocasio-Cortez is a better representative.
