As Twitchy reported Wednesday, Raw Story reprinted a damning study showing that states led by GOP governors (and hence had more lax rules about COVID) had higher COVID death rates than states run by Democratic governors. However, plenty of people noted that the study only looked at a three-month period in 2020 — and conveniently missed the huge spike in deaths in states like New York and New Jersey earlier in the year.

Now ABC News is weighing in with its study, which shows that those COVID hotspots health experts warned about weren’t so hot after all.


Remember the crackdowns on gyms and hair salons last spring? Small business owners actually went to jail.
