In the left's attacks on Sen. Joe Manchin for refusing to support the Biden “Bring Back Bankruptcy” bill that 74% of his constituents oppose, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that he was blocking progress that most Americans want, even though she represents as many people as he does, or maybe more.
For the record: A recent NPR/Marist poll found that only 41% of voters support that bill. Memo to AOC: 41% is less than "most."
Also, Manchin represents the entire state of West Virginia, population nearly 1.8 million. In his last election, he received over 290,500 votes. AOC’s district has a population of just under 700,000, and in 2020, she got about 153,000 votes.
Ironically, she might have a better argument against Bernie Sanders. He seems to think that Manchin is betraying democracy by not voting the way Bernie wants him to. Bernie represents Vermont, population 643,503. So if we really did apportion Senate power among the states by population, the way socialists like Bernie want us to, he’d be sitting at the kids’ table.
