counties with most Covid virus voted Trump
Cool   Interesting.  The most virus infested areas favored Trump.


Counties with worst virus surges overwhelmingly voted Trump


"U.S. voters went to the polls starkly divided on how they see President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. But in places where the virus is most rampant now, Trump enjoyed enormous support.

An Associated Press analysis reveals that in 376 counties with the highest number of new cases per capita, the overwhelming majority — 93% of those counties — went for Trump, a rate above other less severely hit areas.

Most were rural counties in Montana, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin — the kinds of areas that often have lower rates of adherence to social distancing, mask-wearing and other public health measures, and have been a focal point for much of the latest surge in cases.

Taking note of the contrast, state health officials are pausing for a moment of introspection. Even as they worry about rising numbers of hospitalizations and deaths, they hope to reframe their messages and aim for a reset on public sentiment now that the election is over.

“Public health officials need to step back, listen to and understand the people who aren’t taking the same stance” on mask-wearing and other control measures, said Dr. Marcus Plescia of the Association of State and Territorial Health Official."
'cases' ?

Who cares about cases?
Not surprising at all, it is simple logic.

  1. People who catch the virus and recover, tend to be immune later.
  2. The virus was spread initially in higher-density population areas, and much later, lower-density areas.
  3. Rural areas tend to vote Republican.
These three facts, taken together, make the "surprising revelation" a certainty, given the timing of the initial wave of the virus.
