According to the report, states that voted for Biden on average lost 6.2 percent of jobs versus states that voted for Trump, which only lost 2.5 percent of jobs.
The Daily Mail analysis shows one of the main reasons job loss rates differed could be the varying severity of state lockdown restrictions. “Between February and December of last year, states that went for Biden saw the total number of people working drop an average of 6.2 percent, versus a 2.5 percent decline in those voting for the Republican,” the report claimed, referencing federal jobs data.
The 13 states that saw the least amount of decline in employment are all strongly Republican-leaning. The chart is led by Alaska and Utah, which according to the report, saw an increase in the jobs by 0.7 and 0.3 percent, respectively.
