Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have walked back her claims that climate change would end the world in 12 years-blaming the GOP for taking her too literally-but it appears the idea has already infected the Left as gospel truth. According to a new Rasmussen poll, a whopping 67% of Democrats (48 percent of all likely voters) believe AOC’s climate change hysteria and the 12-year deadline as the hard truth. Even more telling perhaps is that back in January when AOC first made the remarks only 23 percent of voters agreed with her. Yet, according to liberals, the right is composed of religious fanatics.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Remember when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that if we don’t do something about climate change the world will end in 12 years, and then she faulted the GOP for taking her literally and not being able to take a joke? “You’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal,” she tweeted earlier this month.

Well, apparently Democrats can’t take a joke either because according to a Rasmussen poll released today, a staggering 67 percent of Democrats believe Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change warning to be completely legit.

According to the poll, 48 percent of all likely voters agree that the United States has only twelve years left to fight climate change before the effects are irreversible. The poll did not identify Ocasio-Cortez or Bernie Sanders (who still believes the doomsday prediction to be true) while conducting the survey.
