According to a Gallup Poll released on Friday, 41% of American adults now have an unfavorable opinion of Ocasio-Cortez, just two months into her first term.

That’s up from 26% last September, in the wake of her primary win over longtime Representative Joe Crowley.

Support for Ocasio-Cortez largely breaks down along party lines, with 56% of Democrats backing the freshman Rep., compared to just 5% of Republicans
