Covid-19 cases - Per Capita - Notice anything about 12 of the worst 13 states??




That's a LOT of Republican Governors right there.

New York and New Jersey aren't even in the Top 20 anymore, in terms of Per Capita

1. Just one observation

I'd prefer it if NH weren't lumped in with the rest of the states governed by republicans.

NH is more of a purple state, and the blue parts are, as far as I can tell, being pretty responsible. All public places require masks, and most employees and customers are complying. Not all, but easily 90%+ from my observations. The harder hit areas are republican, but they are also more densely populated, and I would argue that that's as much the reason for more cases than political leadership. Don't get me wrong, there are some truly vile republicans in NH, and let's not forget that parscale called NH home, as did white supremacist christopher cantwell.

Also, while I would prefer a Democratic governor, it's probably not going to happen for a while. Chris Sununu is popular and he is standing firm on the no income or sales tax thing. And running without what they call here "taking the pledge" is tantamount to losing.

4. I hate the map used on TV news showing total cases. Makes Blue states look worst.

This map showing per cent of population confirmed infected gives a truer picture.

In addition, in some Red states we know the administrations have been suppressing the count.

A true count would look much worse.

5. Yea, they

Show NY on some maps on MSM TV as being a state with bad spiking.

Excuse me but itís only in the NYC region. The rest of the state is like under 1%
NY-21 St Lawrence County is at 0.5%

Oh well, at least New Yorkers (the state I mean) know that we are doing great overall. Our Gov is handling the spikes in NYC very nicely and as of yesterdays news conference, I THINK the numbers are already trending down again.
