1. Don't know about the accuracy of this, but that would really be a kick if the republicans lost the

midterms by significant numbers because of this

19. And COVID effects can be an accelerating mental/cognitive decline, like Alzheimer's

He may himself be suffering from this, along with his supporters.

Recent article analyzes brain shrinkage after COVID, even in people who aren't aware of any after-effects.

20. There are more than a couple of republican congress critters, such as ron johnson, gosar, paul, etc.

who refused the vaccine, and one has to wonder if their deviant behavior isn't a result of their covid infection

2. Trump's sudden enlightenment

concerning vaccinations might be related to these GOP deaths?

9. Maybe, but I think it's more likely because he got booed when he admitted getting the booster.

Now he has to convince all those people that he lied to about Covid being a Democratic hoax that he got vaxxed for good reason. He can't allow them to think that he was wrong about something.

3. As a bonafide Politic Science Major- I speak with authority (hahahah)

Elections are all about the count and the numbers. Repukes are focusing on getting the first count. A fair count is what they want to take away.

Oh and the numbers is part of super stable genius's master plan. He did not factor in what a virus does not care about your political tribe. That train has left the station and his goal of creating chaos is all they ever wanted in order to chip away at us.

4. My amateur analysis

here in Wisconsin, which is about 50/50 as you can get.

Wis has 18 Biden counties and 54 Trump counties.
From 1 July 2021 to 31 December 2021, roughly 700 deaths in Biden counties and 2100 in Trump counties.
So prorated over twelve months it would be 1400 to 4200, a gap of 2800. Keep in mind only ~70% vote and not everyone in a blue county voted Biden and not everyone in a red county voted for Trump.

Conclusion? Hard to pinpoint specifics because maybe 90% of the deaths are Trump supporters. However, are enough dying to make an electoral impact? Is it different in TX or FL?

5. I've seen articles that correlate trump counties with high unvaxxed rates, hospitalization and death

That with the thousands of ppl that have removed themselves from the republican party...may make a difference

11. Yes, a gap but not that big here

I checked last week, IIRC 66% fully vaxxed in Biden counties and 58% in Trump counties.

Educated conservatives in the suburbs are vaxxed much more so than P.O.C. in the City of Milwaukee.

6. If we are lucky

even with voter suppression laws and redistricting, we might end up with more of us than there are of them. Which will be a Good Thing. I do not like to rejoice in anyone's death, but they're bringing it on themselves.

8. I agree w/ the perception that a political affiliation does exist w/ these stats, but we're not the

ones that created these gruesome stats, they (trump's voters) and trump are only to blame, no one else.

If anything, the sick and dying among died hard trump fans should start to see the light and see how trump used their tragedies to further his own agenda, hide the gruesome disease and its impacts from all.

Mocking and claiming that the disease is no worse than the flu, and the sheer numbers of those dying put the lie to trump's claim that the disease is no worse than the flu. Maybe these people will see the truth finally, and finally start to turn away from trump, but in the meantime, it's a horrible way to see the truth in its ugliness, isn't it (the ignored deaths and sickness by rump)?

10. I'm done pretending. Every day I wake up and see more COVIDiots in hell is a good day.

Most of them if they vote are former guy followers. I just hope it's enough.

12. Only actual votes matter

All speculation. We should stay quiet as "If your opponent is making an unforced error, do not correct them". Remember that some of these weren't likely to vote for us, but not necessarily reliable R votes either.

The fix is in.

14. But they hurt everyone else along the way

They take up beds, medications, and other resources, while also causing critical staffing shortages so “elective” surgeries have to be cancelled and the medically vulnerable can’t be treated.

It is so hard to accept how very selfish these people are. I will never recover from the disappointment and raw cynicism I now feel about my neighbors.

but if more of them are dying, so be it.

17. Not So Smart Faux

they're killing their own demographic; old white people.

Funny how young anti-vaxxers downplay COVID as an "old person's" disease. Do you think they'll change their tune in 30 years? If they make it that far...

18. Our side promotes vaccination, their side promotes complete falsehoods

Whether it's elected officials or voters, one party has consistently encouraged people to follow public health guidelines while the other side resisted it.

And I've seen a few too many DUers fall into the GOP trap of conflating race with party. Most minority Democrats are vaccinated. The unvaccinated are often not even political or are the conservative Candice Owens types.
