10. Scott has done a very good job even as he was slow to mandate masks state wide

It is essentially unfair to compare Cuomo and Scott. The job was not the same. The virus struck later in Vermont, so Vermont locked down earlier in its outbreak than NYC. It was not just that time scale, NYC is very densely populated and there were many tough issues. Ie if you stop the subways, essential workers including those in hospitals can not get to work easily.

Vermont has advantages of having a lot of green space making it far easier to social distance without being confined to their homes. Even the largest city, Burlington, has plenty of low density places where people can hike or just enjoy the outdoors.

Where Vermont, the governor, the mayors, the legislature etc should get credit is they worked together. Burlington bought white denim fabric and enlisted many volunteers to make 21,000 masks that were given to front line workers such as bus drivers, clerks and others, then they were given to older people, then to anyone who asked for one.

The most impressive thing to me, is once the numbers were down and a very slow reopening process began, they genuinely had a working process that expanded testing and a strong contact tracing program. There was a spike, largely in Winooski. The spike was largely higher because once a few positives came to light nearly everyone in the affected community was tested as well as everyone consider to have contact with those positives. The outbreak was quickly ramped down.

Another positive story was recently someone at a nursing home was found to be positive. However, the facility quickly explained that this was a new person, who was still in a 14 day quarantine with regular tests before being admitted to the community. This demonstrated that the state guidelines on this worked protecting the vulnerable residents.

At this point, Vermont has not had anyone die for more than a month, has had very few people hospitalized in the last couple of months and has one of the lowest RATES of positive covid cases in the nation. Note I looked at comparisons of the rate per 100000 people. Vermont being low in absolute numbers means nothing.

2. 40% approval for DeSantis?

Let's see how his numbers hold up when school children start getting sick in a few weeks.

14. Yep, his killing BS all must open full time is going to absolutely explode in his face.

Unfortunately, it won't be his family suffering, but ours. He's not helping schools protect teachers & doing little/nothing for the students. There are zero plans for safely busing the kids, it can't be done safely if almost everyone is going to class away from home. Districts all over the state have submitted plans for partial inshool weeks with no decisions from the Education Commissioner, aka drumpf/PUtin/DeathSentence! When the schools are closed by the beginning of Oct. because there aren't sufficient teachers that aren't quarantining or sick with the virus and we are in major trouble, DeathSentence will also be what he's done to his political fortunes.

4. Shows you the country isn't so crazy

Sure, there are partisans, but these numbers show that there are many Republicans who love their Democratic governor's response and many Republicans that don't like their Republican governor's response. Now let's see if they hold that party responsible for this mess in November.

12. Four of the top ranked are Republican

Scott of VT, Sununu NH, Baker MA, and Hogan MD. However, all the worst are Republican.

5. Where is Lee (TN)? This state had 4300+ new cases yesterday. Over

100,000 confirmed cases total. And he refuses to issue a mask mandate state wide. Scumbag.

6. BTW - Reid Wilson gives the source for the numbers

in his prior tweet.

One DUer calls Iowa governor Kim Reynolds “covidKim”. How appropriate.

7. Pritzker

My Governor has done an admirable job, but we do have upticks in certain regions and he will place another stay-at-home order if the percentages do not go down. Cook county (Chicago) and the metro east (over the river from St. Louis Mo.) being the two of 4 hot spots right now.

15. I'm surprised he wasn't on the list of the best.

I followed him quite a bit (I'm in MA) and I was quite impressed with him. What is your opinion of him as governor?

16. I have nothing but

admiration for him and his family. He had a hiccup when he was running against Rauner, but all in all, just dandy.
