New COVID-19 Cases in the Month leading up to Elections 2020

FRIDAY, NOV 06, 2020

How big of a factor was the spread of the coronavirus in the 2020 presidential election? Not much, if you look at how people voted in the nation’s 500 counties that were hit hard in the month leading up to the contest. President Donald Trump won 93 percent of the counties with the highest rates of new infection between early October and the Nov. 3 election, according to a Social Explorer analysis. In Bon Homme County, S.D., where 1 in 7 people were infected over the preceding month, Trump took 74 percent of the vote. In Norton, Kan., where almost as many new infections were reported, he took 83 percent of the vote.
