New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is better-known than most of the highest-ranking lawmakers and most powerful cabinet secretaries in Washington, according to a new INSIDER poll.  After just over two months in office, Ocasio-Cortez is more than 15 times as well-known as the longest-serving congressional Republican, Rep. Don Young.  Among top lawmakers in Washington polled by INSIDER, just three — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — are more well-known than Ocasio-Cortez.
