Pelosi says a bottle of water with a “D” next to its name could have won AOC’s district. Do you agree with her?

There are certain districts that are solid Democrat, that the voting majority votes Democrat. There are also certain districts that vote Republican. There can be changes over time, but the social platforms of the two political parties have polarized. With rare exceptions, this applies in US States as well. The US President in 2016 and again in 2020 will be chosen by voters in US States that swing either way, called purple states.
More Democrat < New Mexico, Virginia, Colorado, Maine, Nevada, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Texas, Iowa > More Republican
The rest of the states are pretty much decided that the party nominee should win that state.
It is what makes accurate voter opinions in these states important. Of all the Democrat candidates for 2020, at this time, I very much want Joe Biden to get the nomination. He is the most favored Democrat in these states overall among the total voting population. Florida and Nevada only favor Biden among Democrat candidates, and Arizona is in dead heat for a Trump-Biden election, and Texas has Biden only 1 point behind Trump, and Iowa favors Biden by about 6% over Trump, despite favoring Trump by 10% over Clinton.
By districts, for example, Deceased (dead) brothel owner Dennis Hof won a seat in the Nevada state legislature on Tuesday, election day 2018 handily defeating his living Democratic opponent Lesia Romanov. The district in Pahrump Nevada is highly Republican, and another Republican was appointed to serve.
Not only a bottle of water, corpses can win elections!

With Republicans the way they are today, that would be true of most Democrats.

AOC's district is heavily Democratic, yes. The big upset was AOC unseating the incumbent Democrat in the primary, not winning the general election.

at least the bottle of water knows Bush is not the President.

Taken out of context. She just meant that the district was known to vote Democratic.

No. Most registered voters are democrat and republicans are not willing to represent those voters.

Well, AOC is about 70% water.

Why don't you mention that Pelosi said the same about herself?
PELOSI: "When we won in this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s — and she’s a wonderful member of Congress, I think all of our colleagues will attest — but those are districts that are solidly Democratic. This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts. Not to diminish the exuberance and the personality and the rest of Alexandria and the other members..."
