Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks the U.S. has 500 million people

As of July 1, 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates the U.S. population to be 325,719,178.

However, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks the U.S. has 500 million people.

She recently stated:

“200 million Americans make less than $20,000 a year. That’s 40% of this country.”

Skip to 4:45 in this video to hear her say those words:

I certainly would not expect her or anyone else to know the exact number. If she or anyone else had said that the U.S. population was 325 million or 330 million, that would be perfectly reasonable.

But 500 million?
