Useless eaters

While the Trumpiest precincts have contributed Covid deaths at 5.3X the rate of the least since 6/30/21, they were largely just expendables.

They won’t matter In hardly any of the gerrymandered congressional districts or polarized states where they mostly reside.

Well, there is an economic downside for those "taker" states, the decline in Social Security payments.  And we know for a fact that in some of these "taker" states, those monthly Social Security checks make up a significant portion of their rural communities' cash flow.  A few thousand deaths of their useless eaters translate into a lot more useless eaters not eating than you might first expect.

If This turns out to be the last big wave and is now starting into slow decline, we’ll probably have 1.2-1.4M excess deaths by Spring. 

Hard to figure that’s more than 3-400k net MAGA but on balance that number probably represents those who took one for the team through ignoring public health advise or vaccines.

As I said, probably not mostly in areas where it will make a huge political difference, but when they’re probably losing 1M/yr to demographics it does add up.
