Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Thom Hartmann looks at several studies that found the trend of increased violent deaths when Republicans are in power. One researcher he interviewed told him this: "My colleagues and I did a study about 10 years ago looking at the two different parties in the United States -- not in terms of ideology or policies but purely in terms of violent death rates -- and, astonishingly, we found that over a 110-year period, almost without exception, whenever there was a Republican president who was elected, the murder and suicide rates would double, and whenever there was a Democratic president elected the murder and suicide rates would halve."

In 2020, President Trump's last year in office, murder rates climbed by nearly 30 percent and assault rates by more than 10 percent. ...

"But since 2021, violent crime has started to fall. According to the FBI, as of 2022 violent crime rates had fallen by 4 percent and murder rates by roughly 7 percent since 2020. Preliminary data suggests those declines accelerated in 2023."

Another stunning failure for the smelly-------------.
