In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and the Republican establishment to win a historic election. The Democrat Party, on the other hand, has not made the same changes away from the establishment as the Republican Party has. Hillary Clinton and President Joe Biden are both establishment leaders who won their respective elections in 2016 and 2020 by defeating socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), so preventing the left-wing populist movement from taking the White House.
According to Democratic Consultant Michael Hopkins, Ocasio-Cortez, also known as "the future of the Democratic Party," has policies that are rooted in populism. As a result, she is "less of a personality and more of a movement" and will be "a force to be reckoned with" in 2024 in order to compete with Donald Trump.
“In the age of social media and quick sound bites, no Democrat is more prepared to embarrass a bully like Donald Trump,” Hopkins asserted. “She’s the voice of a movement that began after the banks were bailed out by the government, while homeowners were left to default.”
The candor with which she discusses the challenges of daily life provides a strong indication that she is not only a persona created for public consumption. She is not tied to corporations; she is a prodigious small-dollar fundraiser; and she has the potential to out-Trump Trump in a way that no other politician has been able to do so to this point.
It is possible that Ocasio-Cortez will run for office in 2024; however, Joe Biden has allegedly declared that he will seek reelection in 2020 since he believes that he is the only Democrat who has a chance of beating Donald Trump. According to a CNN survey, however, 75 percent of Democratic voters want Joe Biden to be replaced at the top of the presidential ticket in 2024. This number is up from 51 percent in February. According to a poll conducted by Harvard CAPS-Harris on Monday, it was found that Trump has a lead over Biden in the hypothetical race for the presidency in 2024 by a margin of four percentage points (45-41 percent).
It is not apparent whether Ocasio-Cortez intends to wage a significant campaign against the Democratic establishment in a primary contest against Joe Biden or against any of the other prospective candidates in 2024. Ocasio-Cortez came to the conclusion that she would be better off remaining in her far-left House district, where she faces no competition and can maintain her national relevance, rather from running against the establishment candidate Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in 2022.dr
