“An analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Johns Hopkins University found that the sixteen states with the highest COVID-19 death rates since last summer were all run by Republicans.  Leading the pack was West Virginia at about 204 deaths per 100,000 people.  The states with the lowest rates, including California at fifty-eight deaths per 100,000, all had either Democratic governors or moderate Republican governors, with heavily democratic legislatures.”
