    LOL. You can’t trust Florida’s official stats at all. We know DeSantis under tested and under reported the totals.

    • Hey, why don’t you just compare excess death year over year(all deaths, including covid)? Florida is +19% California +28%. Then compare Unemployment rate CA: 9.3(and rising)% Fl: 6.1%(dropping vastly). Florida has the oldest population(Maine doesn’t count) whereas CA is the 5th youngest. (42 years old vs 35 years old) Lockdown and mask mandates is the worst public policy in modern history, only exceeded by slavery and reconciliation. Look at the harm we have done to our kids and how much we have torn our societal fabric with all the business closures. America is build on small businesses which provides employment to 49.2% of the private sector. NOT everything is about covid. Move on.

    • @ReddishCarp 123 No evidence /facts ??? Excuse me but .There are multiple reports from credible news outlets of COVID-19 deaths in the State of Florida being UNDER REPORTED from as early as APRIL 2020, and of Governor DeSantis offices DIRECTLY being involved in preventing releasing relevant data from HOSPITALS and NURSING HOMES in regards to TESTING and DEATHS from these facilities.

      @muadhnate it sounds like you’re denying the numbers, just like trump supporters tbh 💀

    • Millions have died in Florida!! They’re hiding bodies. Rebekah Jones is super honest and totally not a grifter with a bad past.

    • @U N Trumptifa troll

  2. Given their population, Florida should be significantly lower. Hopefully those lives were worth it.

  3. A comparison makes no sense because it assumes everyone in California followed the States orders. Some didn’t and that was more than enough for the pandemic to spread.

    • Yep. Sad, but true. There are a lot more anti-science Trumpists in CA, than people realize. Of CA voters registered by party, only 60% are Democrats. There are also many rural & wealthy areas that are traditionally Republican.

    isn’t desantis moving vacines from poor areas to rich ones? wheres that story?

    • Michael Hazell | March 11, 2021 at 5:00 PM | Reply

      He has most of the vaccines in red parts of florida. Mostly ne fl. I think availability should be in more hot zones like miami and orlando

    • Boni_ Traxton | March 12, 2021 at 10:53 AM | Reply

      Most Walgreens an Winn Dixie are offering a shot what are you talking about……an can you include the majority of minorities that don’t even WANT this vaccine

    • Andrew Evans | March 15, 2021 at 6:14 PM | Reply

      No hes not. The “comtroversy” is vaccines were given to rich white old people, instead of prioritizing poor brown people.


    • Michael Hazell | March 15, 2021 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      @Andrew Evans it’s still a pain for most of the urban areas to get the vaccine. It’s very limited, and won’t be a plentiful supply till may which sucks

  5. Florida didn’t tackle virus at all they just suppressed data

    • @Dave Waldon Wow, you don’t hear from the Log cabin Republicans to much anymore. Great to see you guys are still around.

      Take care buddy. Hope you and your husband have an awesome time at Disney land.

    • @dayone thousands of illegal immigrants with covid coming through our borders but we have to stay locked down 🤦🐑💯

    • Thongs > virus 😂

    • Omar Abuaita | March 14, 2021 at 7:08 AM | Reply

      There is no evidence of that though. Usually when you make such a stupid and ridiculous claim you have to back it up with EVIDENCE and SOURCES. The burden of proof is on you.

    • @Omar Abuaita must be some evidence of it since you’re upset

  6. Marek Kolenda | March 11, 2021 at 3:55 PM | Reply

    Covid staying when 80% population get vaccination its takes one or two years.

  7. Marek Kolenda | March 11, 2021 at 3:58 PM | Reply

    Sputnik V and Sinovac vaccine 70% positive effective rating

    You forgot to mention, if california had the underreporting shenanigans of florida……
    Who was it that said to do less testing…..

  9. Sophia Wilson | March 11, 2021 at 4:50 PM | Reply

    So why did Desantis an arrested have the ex data researcher and had her arrested?.

  10. FROM a CALIFORNIAN! In California, we had a lockdown but not everybody was following the rules so what lockdown

  11. Bethany Escobar | March 11, 2021 at 5:13 PM | Reply

    Florida and New York has more in common than we think! They both like hiding COVID numbers 😉

  12. The death rate per population was about the same, but the death rate per number of cases was higher in Florida: 1.7% in Florida and 1.5% in California. One would also have to look at the variants affecting both states.

  13. Denise Crawford | March 11, 2021 at 6:48 PM | Reply

    Interesting!!! DeSantis is a dreamer. See 2024 can’t wait to see the run.

  14. Brian Pulliam | March 11, 2021 at 6:54 PM | Reply

    Yea Florida Gov. sucks and he caught it and hid it for 3 weeks

    • Andrew Evans | March 15, 2021 at 6:18 PM | Reply

      4.8% unemployment. Kids in school, businesses open. 2nd oldest population 27th in deaths per million and falling

      Compare to 9% unemployment. Kids not in schools. Businesses closed. 5th youngest population. 29th in deaths per million and climbing

  15. Sam Samantha | March 11, 2021 at 8:00 PM | Reply

    Did they forget the adjusted number of deaths by DeSantis?

  16. Explain this. Florida residents love their Governor and he’s being talked about as a presidential candidate. California residents loathe their Governor and he’s about to be recalled. No talk of a continued political career for him.

    • Larry's Mock | March 13, 2021 at 4:39 AM | Reply

      @Serah Fabregas Yes I can believe that, I got victory with him, I was so sad after receiving the first payment knowing I invested so low with fear😓😫

    • Jackson Raymond | March 13, 2021 at 4:41 AM | Reply

      I am happy for taking the bold step in working and investing $2000 with Mr Michael for people to talk this good about him

    Lol comparing Florida and California to each other, is like trying to decide which flaming turd smells better…

  19. 9 out of 10 when adjusted for capita in both states. It’s in the video at the three min mark. What more to ask ?

  20. MSNBC viewers: I’m curious if the numbers are ABOUT the same how is Florida a failure?? Am I missing something?
