Interesting Statistics: Covid 19 outbreaks v Political Divide

Saw this on the Chuck Turd Show, Meet the Press this morning.

The majority of the counties that voted for Clinton in 2016 have 77% of the outbreaks.

The counties that voted for Trump show 19% of the outbreaks.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/mee...ponse-n1171491



Quote:
About 77 percent of those confirmed cases were in the 490 counties that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And the overwhelming majority of those Clinton counties, 81 percent, had at least one case. Meanwhile, there were more than 2,600 counties that voted for President Trump in 2016, but they hold only 19 percent of the cases.
See even mother nature in her wrath, doesn't like Democrats.

Is this suprising? The base of the D vote is in densely populated, urban areas- and high density suburbia .
The base of the R vote is much more rural, semi suburban....

What is the better breeding ground for epidemic?

True. No disputing that. The article also alludes to the fact that high density population areas tend to vote Democrat.

First, a big +1911 to PolymerMan for sharing this eye-opening data.

Still, not a surprise to me, for a number of reasons.

New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, Seattle metro area, etc. I'm kinda wondering when Baltimore and Newark will appear on the list of hot spots.

Still, this virus doesn't play favorites in a medical sense, and if it were not for the Dems' efforts to blame President Trump and impose their socialist-type agendas (e.g., closing gun stores as "non-essential"), my reaction would be more like "hey, we're all in this together".

But with the Dems' hostility towards President Trump, and with overwhelming data as to the infection hot spots, their unpreparedness, their voting history, and their gutless response of blaming President Trump (as if he's responsible for their unpreparedness), I think they deserve a little pushback. (Not in the sense of failing to help hospitals, etc., but only as taking note as to who was more self-sufficient, who prepared at their own expense, and simply pointing this out.). If those folks didn't see a need for more ventilators themselves two months ago (they did not), it is ludicrous for them to now blame Present Trump.

As I've added in a subsequent post, NY knew, years ago, that they did not have enough ventilators to handle a serious epidemic. But they chose to do nothing. That is on them.

This info was not developed by Fox News was it. Looks like their brand of anti-Dem "news".

Our Democratic governor here in Illinois signed a bill stating gun shops are "essential". Cudos to him.

What should be prime time primary season has been effectively shut down for the time being.... theis is when the off party mobilizes, gets its base energies, weeds out the pool...it will be interesting to see how it impacts the election cycle.

"Saying Trump has ‘blood on his hands’ is media hype, New York is Covid-19 hell because government at EVERY level is broken"

"...the media’s criticism of Donald Trump misses the point: New York is sick not because of POTUS, but because of an endemic rot at every level of government. New York is sick...."

"New York has been short on the lifesaving devices for years. In a 2015 report, the New York State Department of Health noted that in the event of a pandemic on the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu, the city would experience a shortage of 15,000 ventilators. Though the paper did not outright recommend that Cuomo’s administration buy more, its publication did not rouse him into action."

Indeed. This has led to hashtags such as #WhereIsJoeBiden

Perhaps even more telling:

"The rejection of another debate with Sanders comes after several public appearances that drew widespread scrutiny for signs of Biden’s apparent cognitive decline and possible health concerns. In a series of interviews this week, Biden repeatedly coughed and acted confused, sometimes making statements that made little sense.

In a discussion on The View about the need for a vaccine for the coronavirus, Biden left everyone scratching their heads when he said, “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what.”

At other times his sentences have tapered off without completing a thought. In a live interview on MSNBC, he started to express pride in the frontline responders to the coronavirus but failed to finish his sentence. “I’m so darn proud,” he said, “of those poor people who have lost…. anyway.”"

These gaffes have led to interviewers looking visibly uncomfortable, with Biden’s apparent cognitive difficulties on display for all to see."


https://www.rt.com/usa/484169-joe-bi...mber-election/

Biden's campaign now seems mostly focused on sending out a daily barrage of emails asking people to "chip in $5". It is no wonder that his handlers are making every effort to avoid further exposing the aforementioned cognitive and health concerns.

Yes, this certainly sounds like someone we should give the nuclear launch codes to.....

Yes, that was acknowledged in post no. 4.

But it makes you wonder because the disparity is just staggering.

This isn't a 50-50 split, but a 20-80 disparity. That is huge.

If anything, this is Trump's opportunity to win-over those in the big cities by demonstrating tough leadership.

Urban vs. Rural. I bet that firearms ownership is inverse.

It undoubtedly is.

America needs rural America more than ever before. Whether it knows it or not. Today, year 2020, rural America is all that stands between retention of the Constitution versus socialism.

Even so, one must also always remember that averages are just that. An average. Buried within urban averages are many staunch 2A supporters. They vote in the same direction as their rural counterparts, and their support is also essential towards maintaining the Constitution.

In most urban areas, it is unfortunately true that those of the more leftists mindset too often represent a majority...a majority that has too much sway on election results. But we mustn't forget those persons who are distinctly pro-2A...we are represented virtually everywhere, whether a majority or not.

---

It is my guess that, even in those urban areas, our pro-2A friends are faring better than the leftists types...i.e., that they're more part of the 19% figure. And that the leftists -- always expecting the government to take care of them -- are more part of the 77% figure. And this just might be so...it wouldn't surprise me at all, as common sense and taking care of one's self are key factors.

This is a pretty good observation.

I think that having two Senators per state is a really wise decision. The communists from the heavily populated communist states grouse about this constantly. But it really serves well as a bailiwick towards circumventing the passage of really bad laws.

Not sure what Happened between postings, but I think that we are on the same page.
Clearly some people with vision foresaw this at the right time. When Elizabeth Warren came out speaking for the idea that the Senate had long outlived it's usefulness. Her true agenda became quite clear for all to see.

Currently we appear to be stemming the tide. But if these communists are able to get the upper hand going forward. It could get ugly.

I'm sure "flyover country" is looking more and more appealing to some of the East Coast elitists about now...

Nope we have cow farts in the air and cow patties on the ground they need to keep flying.
