Exclusive: States With Lowest Unemployment Are Dominated By Conservatives & Republicans






” America is said to be the laboratory of democracy. If so, there may be a top secret ideological formula for lower unemployment: conservatism.

States where self-identified conservatives dominate the political landscape are more likely to have the lowest unemployment rates. People can argue about it, but they should take it up with the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the people who respond to Gallup surveys.

Comparing Bureau of Labor Statistics’ state unemployment numbers released on March 18th, 2013 with Gallup polling published in February 2013, the superior performance of conservative states is glaring. Gallup frames its scores as ‘conservative advantage,’ and these variables average out to a score of 17.7. That means the middle-of-the-road ideology score is about 17.7.”
