"Why Trump and the GOP Didn’t Claim Vaccines," co-authored by Professor Shana Kushner Gadarian, was featured on Michael Smerconish's blog. "There is now a large partisan gap between the vaccinated and unvaccinated that is growing over time. Many eligible Americans are choosing not to get vaccinated and increasingly, those who choose to remain unvaccinated and unprotected identify as Republicans and live in Republican counties," writes Gadarian and her co-authors. "There is, in fact, a strong negative correlation across nearly every state in the union between county-level Trump vote share in 2020 and vaccination rates, measured using data maintained by the CDC."
