Most important number? With 4.4% of the world's population, the U.S. has over 25% of its deaths.

The stat that will sink Trump, showing clearly that his response to the pandemic has been a "chaotic disaster," as Obama termed it, is a comparison of the results of the world's response compared to ours. Basically, with 4% of the population we've had over 25% of the deaths.


Let's hammer this home!

All but the fiercely deluded will see and understand that and vote both Trump and his enabling Republicans out of office in November.



**********************************

The data:

Checking the numbers this a.m. I came up with the following, which I consider consistent with the above:

There are 7.6 billion people in the world, 330.7 million live in the United States. or 4.4%

The world's death count as of this morning was 286 thousand. In the U.S. it stands at 81.8 thousand, or 28.6%

8. The #s of C-19 cases in America is no doubt much higher then the reported #s.

But I bet that the # of cases world wide is higher too.

We are gonna pass the # of dead from WW I (116,000) with the # of dead from C-19 shortly.

4. It was a hoax said Fox and Trump for three months.

Americans are dying from Republican ignorance and stupidity.

5. I'd hammer it home too, just remember deaths per capita are greater in UK, Spain, Italy, and France.

I think they started a bit earlier than us, so maybe we'll have dubious distinction of catching up.

6. You're right, of course, but

the fact remains that we've had over 1/4th of the world's deaths.


4% population and 25% deaths is accurate and politically devastating.

Trump could respond with a per capita number, but he has to acknowledge the 4% to 25%. And that number is a killer politically.

9. And, we've passed Italy in deaths per capita.

I didn't think that would be possible.
