I think blue is "yes" on recall

No f'ing way SF voted to recall Newsom and Kern didn't

Just so we're all clear on what we're looking at, comrades, this is almost an inverse of a population density map.

A few of us are ruining it for everyone else in every conceivable way. By choice.

The difference is in blue States, they get an electoral beatdown and are basically stuck in low rent zones until they move to a low tax low quality of life rural red hell State. Red is becoming redder, blue becoming bluer.

Happy hump day!

Bay Area is the most population dense part of the state, I believe. Certainly much denser than Kern Co. Yet Bay Area is doing much better w/ COVID than Kern.

They don't realize that they're the problem, and we get yelled at when we try to point it out. I guess we'll be masking up and getting booster shots for years.

And the Senate and the Supreme Court will remain effectively Republican (and anti-democratic). I wonder what my grandparents would have said had they lived to see this.

Try the inverse. The Republican areas are sparsely populated so it's even more impressive that they are having the worse outbreaks there. That red area on this map is LA county and it has more people in it than all the blue areas in this map combined. Tell me again how the Senate gives fair representation?

Thanks for jumping off the high rope on this one.

Although I'm biased for Cali my beloved Homeland, I like this image too:

San Francisco county has just as many residents as Kern county. That's how dense SF is. Or how sparse Kern is.

farking Republican anti-vaxxers. One would think they'd do better with COVID because they're not on top of each other. But, nooooo...they have the worst rates of all because vaccinations (which Trump even helped push while he was in office so I really don't get it at all).

I could understand hesitation for a certain period of time...but, we're LONG past that.

Yeah, a key or legend on those maps would have been useful.  You can assume you understand the color coding, but God Forbid they should add one line to make sure people understand it!

Umm, no.  Those red areas where COVID cases are high are low density areas relative to the rest.  And if the map shows infections per capita you're doubly wrong.

I showed this to my wife, First the election results. Then, when I flipped to the COVID map she was waaaay ahead of me. No need to explain. By now, one just knows. If COVID has a wave after the Delta one, the dumbos will just fall over in a heap like Utah sheep killed by nerve gas. [1970s story alert]

The Senate was constructed specifically so that highly populated states would not be able to lord it over the lesser-populated states.

However the problem in our age is that the sparsely populated states are in thrall to a political party that has discarded all patriotism, integrity, and morality in favor of the pursuit of power and the fantasy of a "true America" that never actually existed.

The number of people refusing to get vaxxed is almost identical to the number of Trump voters.

Now we are getting map data overlays beginning to point to more than just correlation.

I wonder if we'll get an election where it's obvious that the covid fatalities tipped the results from one side to the other.

The data points to this happening eventually, it's almost a one to one correlation between vaccination rate and political alignment.

FYI:  The reason that "vote yes on recall" rectangle in the upper right doesn't have a higher covid count is because that's Modoc county...  And there's nobody farking there.


It's 78% yes, with 92% reporting (at time of this post)...  And ~3200 votes.

It probably won't break 3500 votes total.


By the time someone who is covid positive sees another person, they've already had 14 days of effective self-quarantine.

Yeah so it kind of is a density map, except it shows the complete opposite outcome than you'd normally predict: the low-density areas have the highest COVID rates.  LA and SF are the most populous, most dense areas and are doing much better on infection rates than barren-ass Kern.
