I went through the statistics for each state and found that states with Democratic governors have over three times the death rate compared to states with Republican governors. Here are the figures.
States with Democratic governors:
Death rate: 28.83 per 100,000
States with Republican governors:
Death rate: 8.49 per 100,000
Sources of death figures:
Population figures are 2019 estimates from the Wikipedia.
Friends don’t let friends vote Democrat?
Time to move to a red state?
