Unemployment Higher In States Controlled By Democrats

By: Brianna Lyman, Daily Caller, August 24, 2020:

The United States’ unemployment rate for July was 10.2%, according to the BLS. However, five states with the highest levels of unemployment are well above the national average, per the BLS:

  • Massachusetts (16.1%)
  • New York (15.9%)
  • Nevada (14.0%)
  • New Jersey (13.8%)
  • Pennsylvania (13.7%)

The top five states are also majority Democrat-run:

  • Massachusetts has a majority Democrat state legislature, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, and Democratic U.S Sen. Ed Markey and Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • New York has a majority Democrat state legislature, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Democratic U.S Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
  • Nevada has a majority Democrat state legislature, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, and Democratic U.S Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto and Sen. Jacky Rosen
  • New Jersey has a majority Democrat state legislature, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, and Democratic U.S Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Bob Menendez
  • Pennsylvania has a majority Republican state legislature, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, and Democratic U.S Sen. Bob Casey Jr. and Republican Sen. Pat Toomey

Meanwhile, Republican controlled states like Georgia had a July unemployment rate of 7.6%, while Republican controlled Florida saw an 11.3% unemployment rate in July.

Aside from the five states with high levels of unemployment, data shows that Democratic trifecta states, where Democrats control both state legislatures and the governorship, have a higher level of unemployment than their Republican counterparts. There are currently fifteen Democratic trifectas and 21 Republican trifectas.

Democratic trifecta states are:

  • California (13.3)
  • Colorado (7.4)
  • Connecticut (10.2)
  • Delaware (10.4)
  • Hawaii (13.1)
  • Illinois (11.3)
  • Maine (9.9)
  • Nevada (14)
  • New Jersey (13.8)
  • New Mexico (12.7)
  • New York (15.9)
  • Oregon (10.4)
  • Rhode Island (11.2)
  • Virginia (8)
  • Washington (10.3)
  • Washington, D.C (8.4)

According to the data, Democrat Trifectas have an average unemployment rate of 11.3% compared to Republican trifectas which have an average unemployment rate of 7.7%. In states that lean Democrat, where Democrats control 2 out of 3 of either the state senate, state house or governorship, the average unemployment rate is 9.6%, compared to states that lean Republican which shows an average unemployment rate of 8.9%.
