My MN House rep, Rena Moran, on Twitter yesterday:
The part Rep. Moran is missing, of course, is that Florida has over four times as many people as Minnesota has.
And that when you look in terms of fatalties per million people, it boils down (as of today) to:
- Minnesota: 276 fatalities per million
- Florida: 210 fatalities per million.
Now – does Rep. Moran truly not know the different between raw numbers and per capita numbers?
Maybe. Maybe not.
But the typical DFL voter, be they in the Midway or Wayzata, certainly does not.
