57 Percent of Republicans Think Number of U.S. Deaths From Coronavirus Has Been ‘Acceptable’

From a CBS News survey of over 2,000 registered voters:

Number of U.S. deaths from coronavirus has been been acceptable / unacceptable:

Republicans: 57% / 43%
Democrats: 10% / 90%
Independents: 33% / 67%

The U.S. has over 176,000 deaths, and that number is growing by around 1,000 per day. According to the same poll, 73 percent of Republicans think the U.S. response to coronavirus is “going well”. This isn’t cultish — it’s a cult. Either a majority of Republicans are sociopaths or they’re so ignorant they have no idea how much worse the U.S. has handled COVID-19 than other industrialized nations. Washington Post columnist Brian Klaas, on COVID-19 deaths reported yesterday:

Italy: 3
France: 9
Japan: 14
Canada: 7
UK: 18
Germany: 3

United States: 974

Population of countries above: 439 million
Population of United States: 328 million

It’s almost over for other nations. Here in the U.S. COVID-19 is rampaging.
