Ares of the United States that had a higher number of votes for President Donald Trump over Joe Biden in the 2020 election have recouped more jobs lost during the pandemic that Biden-voting parts of the country, a new study has found.
Trump voting counties across the U.S. quickly recouped all of their job losses, according to an analysis by the Economic Innovation Group.
The analysis is based on local employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics through the first quarter of 2022.
It found that through the first quarter of this year, counties that supported Trump had almost fully regained all the jobs they lost when the COVID-19 pandemic led to a downturn at the start of 2020.
Specifically, it found that by the end of Q1 2022, Trump-supporting counties were just 124,000 jobs short of where they stood prior to the pandemic in Q1 2020.
The recovery marks an employment shortfall of about 0.3 percent.
In contrast, counties in which a majority of the residents voted for Biden began the year with an employment shortfall of 1.7 million jobs.
The figure equates to a 1.8 percent shortfall of total pre-pandemic employment, according to the analysis.
Analysts noted that Biden counties lost nearly four times as many jobs in the first year of the pandemic than cities in Trump counties.
