Then those 8 statements on page 1 of 1 represented a purposive sample; i.e., statements selected for a specific purpose and not intended to be representative of the population of AOC statements during the year time period. Caution should therefore be exercised for potential selection bias.

So having few claims on it relative to your profile is a good thing.
Unfortunately, there are persons who will cite this one page as evidence that AOC was not a credible person, as may be the case in an earlier post on this thread.

Point made several times in this thread. But this was but an early warning of what will come during the 2020 general election across the pond. Complete and total nonsense will be the new and pervasive normal.
