Republicans not so conservative with Corona

Dan Goodspeed has made one of those racing-bar-charts, this time showing Coronavirus infections per 100,000 by US state, and coloured by their voting partisanship. You can tell where this is going, but seeing the swathe of red still comes as a bit of a shock – of the 25 worst-affected states currently, only three are Democrat-leaning (and two of those are at the bottom), and one is neutral. Perhaps owing allegiance to a science-denier who won’t wear a mask has something to do with it… “The results suggest a strong correlation between a state’s political leanings and its ability to employ proven science to slow the spread of COVID,” reckons Godspeed.
