  1. It's a really nice visualization.

    Also, while California looks like a blue state outlier, I bet if you split it by north & south it would go like the rest.

    I just checked twitter and I was saying as far back as March that this would happen. The crossover point where most new cases were in red states was in late July. Since then it has just gotten worse. Trump stealing PPE from blue states and redirecting it to red states was an attempt to rebalance the death rates, but like everything he does it was lame and failed.

    I'm still wondering if the 215089 deaths (as of the time of posting) may have some impact on the 2020 elections.

    As in if they were going to vote for someone who actually was responsible for their deaths.
