Republicans Believing Trump Are Fueling COVID-19 Outbreak
The Coronavirus epidemic in this country has moved into a lot of red (GOP-controlled) states -- states that reopened before getting real control over the virus. Why is it raging through red states? It looks like it's because Republicans just don't take the epidemic seriously.
Only 38% say they are very concerned about the virus (compared to 83% of Democrats). And only 41% say they weal a face mask when outside their home (compared to 83% of Democrats). Why the difference? It's because the Republicans are listening to Donald Trump's lies, and believing them. Others know that Trump is lying.
