Why The Coronavirus Pandemic Hits Harder In Democratic Areas

The United States overall is experiencing one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the world.

In April, polling showed that both parties largely supported extensive lockdown measures.

Anti-lockdown protests have occurred primarily in states that Trump won.

The partisan impact of the coronavirus, and the response toward it, is due to population density.

A third of Americans live in the 100 most densely populated counties and tend to lean left.

In New Jersey, where there are over 1,200 people per square mile, the death rate is 122 per 100,000.

In Alabama, whose population density is 94 people per square mile, the rate is 11 per 100,000.
