It seems that the politically left do not like to do their own research and make up their own minds...the right is way more likely to do this....WHY?

If you thought you were going to get 50% of something, but in reality you only got 1%...most rational human beings would be curious as to why the number is 1% and not 50%.

NOT LEFT WINGERS....1% is the same as 50% to THEM.

Unless of course, someone tweets the word COVFEFE....then the left loses their minds.

How about DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Lazy ass, you wouldn't believe it if he gave it to you anyway.

Here ya go. Easy peasy. Turns out it's not partisan at all. "Using monthly data from 35,000 U.S. adults who responded to the Franklin Templeton-Gallup Economics of Recovery Study, we document significant variation in the understanding of COVID-related facts and concomitant behaviors."


The Economics of Recovery Study contributes to this research by showing that the polarization of the pandemic goes beyond behavior and policy preferences. It is happening at the most basic level: the interpretation of facts. Republicans consistently underestimate risks, while Democrats consistently overestimate them.

Here's your study.


"Using monthly data from 35,000 U.S. adults who responded to the Franklin Templeton-Gallup Economics of Recovery Study, we document significant variation in the understanding of COVID-related facts and concomitant behaviors."

"The Economics of Recovery Study contributes to this research by showing that the polarization of the pandemic goes beyond behavior and policy preferences.

And which is worse?

Overestimating a risk....which has killed oer 650,000 Americans?

Or underestimating it...

Underestimating leads to not getting vaxxed and not wanting kids masked in schools...and extending this disasters longer.

there's no link. Dumbass. You're asking a person to prove something is false without proving it exists first.

The link is in post 23 dumbass.

no, u moron. The OP asserted the left more so than the science deniers misstated the virus and severity. The actual link Boo put up showed the OP LIED about the actual link.

Cons like you think D voters are commies. Isn’t that terribly uninformed?
I guess you could call them quasi-commies in that they vote for policies that will ultimately lead to Socialism and Communism but are too ignorant and naive to realize it.

Dude you're so fucking stupid its ON THE FUCKING PAGE HE LINKED TO. It shows BY FUCKING PARTY WHO THINKS THIS FUCKING VIRUS IS MOST DANGEROUS.

Damn you are one stupid mother fucker. Fuck off dumbass.

A QUOTE FROM THE LINK:

Democrats are much more likely than Republicans to overestimate this harm. Forty-one percent of Democrats and 28% of Republicans answered that half or more of those infected by COVID-19 need to be hospitalized. Republicans were also far more likely to get the correct answer, with 26% correctly identifying the risk compared to just 10% of Democrats.

Of course you're more likely to be wrong, look at your fucking sources. You fucking morons watch PMSDNC and CNN. They dumb you down just like they want you. And then you embarrass yourself in places like this.

So yea, the title is EXACTLY RIGHT. As per the quote from the link.

Thanks for playing.

Why do you need to Lie? The op was "the left overestimates." When the link the OP lied about actually shows both left and science deniers overestimate.
Meanwhile, Democrats are more likely to correctly understand that COVID can be spread by people without symptoms and more accurately assess the overall mortality risk of COVID-19 as more severe compared to other common causes of death, such as influenza and automobile accidents. In early September, a large portion of Republicans (41%) said that flu had caused more deaths than COVID-19 during 2020, compared to just 13% of Democrats. The President of the United States suggested as much in a tweet in October.[1] Even automobile accidents were said to cause more deaths, which is also untrue according to CDC data. Likewise, just over one in three Republicans (37%) deny that it is definitely true that COVID can be spread by people without symptoms compared to only about one in four (23%) Democrats.

It's all in the study Zippy tried to use to denigrate the opposition. It highlights a lot of interesting aspects of our society at this point in time.

It was first posted in #19. I did that once I read the study and realized how it was taken out of context, as per usual.......

Research shows 41 percent of Democrats believe that 50 percent or more of COVID-19 cases end in hospitalization. In reality, about 1 percent of cases do.

This means DEMOCRATS are wrong by 50 TIMES or 5000%

These people only need spend 5 minutes doing the LITTLEST bit of research to correct their MISINFORMATION.


NOW ASK YOURSELVES....WHY DO LEFT WING COMMUNISTS WANT TO BE MISINFORMED?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
No matter your argument which is undoubtedly crap,
The OP title is a laugh riot.

Come on, you RUBES...this is ONE example. This is not an EXHAUSTIVE analysis of every single issue.

Admit it, left wingers....you SWORE that Trump stole the 2016 election, however a 3 year investigation and $40 million came up with JACK SHIT.

Once again.....why so misinformed?
That you think that the investigations were over Trump stealing the election shows that you and yours are the propaganda victims.
