A new study has graded states by how well they handled the coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent restrictions and lockdowns, showing a stark contrast between liberal and conservative states.

The Committee To Unleash Prosperity study compared state performance on metrics including the economy, education, and mortality from the virus, and examined how states and their respective governments handled the pandemic response.

"Shutting down their economies and schools was by far the biggest mistake governors and state officials made during COVID, particularly in blue states," Steve Moore, co-founder of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, told Fox News Digital. "We hope the results of this study will persuade governors not to close schools and businesses the next time we have a new virus variant."

The 2020 election was all about Covid response and the blame game against Trump. Now with the reports out and Biden in the WH, the 2020 response is totally ignored as are the results. As always civics challenged individuals seek to blame the President for Covid response when the reality is that isn't the role of the President. The President did his job, getting a vaccine approved in record time but the left will continue to promote that blame game. this OP again is about the failures of liberal leadership all over the country micromanaging personal responsibility issues and failing.

Does this study take into account how NYC is run? I ask because NYC is run mostly on public transportation, which packs people into small spaces.

But the lockdowns prevented people from taking public transportation. That is the entire point, the lockdowns which are Governor and mayor responsibilities actually hurt more than helped.

There is also a weirdness in comparing the states that got hit hard at the beginning of the pandemic, like New York and those that got hit hard with Delta like Florida.

Florida’s big wave had advantages that New York did not and those advantages were completely ignored.

So another loyal liberal defending the indefensible. The results stand alone or do you even care?
I don’t know, Conservative. Do the results stand alone or not? After seeing the relationship between vaccinations and deaths, do you still think the results stand on their own?

You miss the point and the reaction to Covid along with the blame against the President at the time leading to his defeat in November 2020. The left does what it always does, create an issue and the headlines but when the results come out they are on to some other topic and blame

I think that the Committee to Unleash Prosperity starts with the result and shapes the metrics to fit that result.
Wow, sounds a lot like liberalism doesn't it? Trump was blamed for his reaction to the pandemic when no President has that authority.

Remember when we heard the phone recordings of Trump saying that he knew COVID was going to be very bad but in public he was saying it was no big deal and was a political weapon being used against him and did nothing to prepare for the pandemic that he knew was coming?

Yeah… me too.

They measured it based on economic metrics.

FFS, the Right is just leaning to their image of “we don’t care how many of you die so long as the rich get richer”.
So rich Californian liberals in Silicon Valley don't count? the stereotype of the right is staggering as the rich liberal elites and rich career public servants apparently don't exist in that stereotype

There is a cult in America that worships a line that is generated from a building in Lower Manhattan and if that line goes down it means that it is mad and people have to be sacrificed for it to go up again and be happy.

Right and when did those phone calls happen? When was the pandemic declared and who supported the first March 2020 stimulus? Who created Project Warp Speed? Who sent a hospital ship to NYC to help with the crisis? Who supported the states getting them reimbursed for pandemic expenses. Can you tell me why you didn't vote for Trump?

Looks like a lot of class envy, jealousy and ignorance on display. Doesn't seem to be much focus on the multi millionaire career public servants making policies and creating dependence.

In February.

A full month before the pandemic hit.

He knew it was coming and did nothing. He did worse than nothing, he lied about it.
yes and what was CDC and WHO saying in February? when was the travel ban implemented? The left promoted this claim for most of 2020 ignoring the actions taken. The pandemic was declared in Mid March 2020. He did nothing? no travel ban in January??

The right would rather those people who depend on the government to survive in a pandemic to just die instead.

Aw, yes, I forgot the right promoting personal responsibility remains the problem with you. We cannot allow people to keep more of what they earn and take power away from the bureaucrats so we promote BS like you just posted
