Guardian News:

Republican governor says ‘time to start blaming unvaccinated’ for rise in cases

The Republican governor of Alabama has said it is “time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks” for rising cases of Covid-19, amid concern that months of misinformation over the need and efficacy of vaccines is fueling a resurgence of coronavirus infections in several states.

More than 600,000 people in the US have died so far due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the worst death toll in the world, and Republican strategists have warned that the party may be blamed by its voters if this total keeps climbing with further Covid outbreaks.

“I think they’ve finally realized that if their people aren’t vaccinated, they’re going to get sick, and if their people aren’t vaccinated, they’re going to get blamed for Covid outbreaks in the future,” said the GOP pollster Frank Luntz.

Never what you really expect...is it?...Squirrel!!...and I doubt there are many republicans in those groups.

Are vaccine-hesitant conservatives REALLY behind the Delta surge? Analysis reveals it isn't just Republicans and red state residents responsible for the summer increase in cases - as the mainstream media would have you believe
Several mainstream media outlets have recently said unvaccinated conservatives were responsible for the Delta Covid surge over the summer
Republicans have been less likely to get vaccinated at 56% compared 92% of Democrats, and are more likely to say they never plan to get shots
But lagging African American vaccination rates have also been to blame for the fourth wave of the pandemic
CDC data show 33% of black Americans are fully vaccinated compared to 40.4% of whites
As of last week, 57% of those who initiated vaccination in the last 14 days were white and just 15% were African American

I did not see the numbers broken out by political party but there is a chart showing demographics by race (attached).

This has nothing to do with covid. But if you want to know the mindset of OC voters. If you want to see actual voter results by political party. You can look at the California governor recall. Last time I checked 52% in OC voted no on the recent California governor recall in a way has to do the handling of covid versus other states.

Um........... you know that a lot of republicans have left the state right? Democrats too of course but a lot of conservatives have gotten fed up with the political climate here. To make up for those people you get takers..... give me freebies. They vote dem.

The majority of OC is republicans, but they still voted no.

It is showing which demographics are vaccine hesitant in Orange County. We need to educate and enable those who are hesitant.

I take it back it has to do with covid. If I remember correctly, the top thing that was on people’s mind when they voted was the handling of covid.
The grace period is over. The term is more like resistant. They can do that and they should pay more for health insurance and life insurance.

There are more registered dems in OC than republicans now. So how is it the majority is republican if there are more democrats registered to vote?

https://www.ocvote.com/datacentral/

10% more dems than republicans. That is pretty significant.

Based on that chart - hang out with Asians as they are most likely to be vaxxed.   ;D

I admit, that does influence which grocery stores I frequent.

Looking at the case chart for the last year and half, the parallel between those two summer curves seems plenty foreboding. 

Hopefully Christmas isn’t no gifts or hospital beds available for you.

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. At this point I don’t think more education is  going to make much difference. Most people who are receptive to being educated have had ample opportunity to get the shot. Oh well, Darwinism in action…

At this point, it's just political. An ex-coworker of mine quit his job due to vaccine mandate at our company. And this is a guy with a PhD in EE. His reason? He hates Biden.
