Red States DESTROY Blue States Based on These Post-Pandemic Metrics

A new study by WalletHub ranked the top 180 U.S. cities to determine where economies are recovering the strongest.

Turns out, cities in Red States are doing much better than cities in Blue States when it comes to the unemployment rate. In fact, 100 percent of the top 10 cities are located in states with Republican Governors.

And 9 out of 10 of the worst cities are located in states with Democratic Governors.

The financial analytics firm used four key metrics to find out where workers have been the least and most impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. They looked at the change in each city’s unemployment rate for May, which is the last month available, then compared that to May 2019, January 2020 and May 2020.

The differences between the top and bottom 10 primarily come down to policy decisions.

The top 10 cities are all in states led by Republican governors, where lockdown restrictions during the pandemic were less extreme and not as lengthy. The bottom 10 cities are in states led by Democratic governors where lockdowns tended to be severe and lengthy, with the exception of one.

This will be important to keep in mind as Democrats — and the Democrat-controlled media — beat the drums for more lockdowns and restrictions starting this fall.

Unfortunately, evidence means nothing to pro-lockdown Democrats. And they won’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed their own states.

For the record, the top 10 cities with the best post-pandemic unemployment rates are:

Manchester, New Hampshire — 1.6%

Nashua, New Hampshire — 1.7%

Burlington, Vermont — 1.3%

South Burlington, Vermont — 1.2%

Lincoln, Nebraska — 2.2%

Huntsville, Alabama — 2.4%

Omaha, Nebraska — 2.8%

Salt Lake City, Utah — 2.7%

Sioux Falls, South Dakota — 2.7%

Billings, Montana — 3%
