"We need the GOP to flatten the curve," co-authored by Shana Gadarian, was published in The Hill. Research by Gadarian and co-authors Sara Wallace Goodman and Thomas B. Pepinsky has uncovered a stunning partisan divide in public responses to COVID-19. "Partisanship is determining how citizens respond to COVID-19, and this divided response puts every American at risk," the authors write. "If America’s political elite cannot come together, the costs of COVID-19 will be disproportionately felt in those places where Republicans did not act." 

Gadarian was also quoted in the Vox article "Partisanship is the strongest predictor of coronavirus response."
