Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could be planning to make her run for the White House, according to veteran political strategist Dick Morris.
According to The Washington Examiner:
Morris, who just published a book declaring that Trump will run in 2024, said the Bronx congresswoman could easily win a string of Democratic primaries and position herself at the top of the ticket. And while young, she would be the constitutionally required 35 on Inauguration Day.
“AOC might win primary after primary, inflaming the leftist grass roots with her charisma and radical agenda,” Morris wrote in The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback.
But could she win nationally? Not a chance, Morris said. “She’d likely lose more than 40 states, and maybe all 50. It would be George McGovern, Walter Mondale, or Mike Dukakis all over again,” he said of Democratic presidential candidates who were crushed at the polls.
“But AOC’s goal is not necessarily the presidency. The doctrine of the communists and radical left is, oddly, to destroy the moderate liberal party so there are no alternatives for centrists to embrace other than their radical faction. Just like it was in pre-Nazi Germany, where the center-left Catholic Party was discredited, leaving voters to face a choice between Nazism and Communism. It may not happen. But it could.”
