This is a new study confirming what has been very apparent since the beginning of the Covid pandemic. Republicans have been killing themselves with silly partisan stupidity about public health measures. The study found not much difference between Republicans and Democrats UNTIL vaccines became widely available. From that point on the registered Republican’s risk of death has climbed substantially above that of the registered Democrat. Before the vaccines the excess death rate for Republicans was 1.6% above Democrats. After the vaccines that excess climbed to 10.4% higher.
No individual Republican is doomed by these findings. All you have to do is get vaccinated.
