Republicans kill their voters with COVID
It takes no mathematician to understand that in provinces where Trump won 7 out of every ten votes, nearly five times more people die from COVID. If these facts are combined with the reality that the vast majority of unvaccinated Americans are Republicans, the conclusion is that the Republican politicization of the pandemic has led to the GOP killing many of their own voters.
The same dynamic plays out with the Republican voter oppression bill. The race for extreme right-wing positions in the Republican Party has led the GOP to adopt policies that harm or even kill their own voters.
If the Republican position on the pandemic is referred to as a death cult, the numbers discussed above.
Republicans like Trump and his red state governors would rather kill their voters than give the Democrats a victory.
Killing your own voters is a lost strategy, but that’s exactly what Republicans are doing in some of the most costly parts of the country.
