It is a fact that you are more likely to see a Republican ignore the mask requirements than an independent or a Democrat based on the behavior of the President. They are following his lead. Add in the demographics that would tend to go up there and my theory is sound.
Well that's some bullshit, but I'll play.
First off neither me or anyone I know gives a rat's ass what the president does or doesn't do as far as the mask. It's my choice whether to wear one or not. I don't belittle anyone for wearing or not wearing one.
And if I use your logic then the vast majority of dems wear a mask because Trump doesn't. Not because it may help slow the spread. Nope, it because "orange man bad".
And anything he's for they're against and anything he's against they're for.
It’s because they tend to listen to the experts. Trump and co. Specifically ran against experts.

I just want to take a moment to remind everyone that Trump, months ago, said that the virus was a hoax.

Stopped into a northern Michigan Walmart over the weekend. A good 80% of the shoppers were going mask free. Except in the check-out lines, few were practicing social distancing.
Where at? On my last trip to Meijer in Manistee (on July 3rd), I would guess 75-80% of shoppers were wearing masks.

I did see a couple of weeks ago that if Whitmer were to increase restrictions, she would consider going county by county and not screw over rural areas due to a spike in a region's major city. IMHO, some northern counties in Regions 2 and 4 should be in Region 6.

So they listen to the "experts" that told us not to wear masks, then they said to wear a mask, but not the "good" ones because we would run hospitals out, now wear one again, and it wasn't airborne, then it was, then "we're not sure", and it can't be transmitted by the asymptomatic, then it could, then it couldn't, now "we're not sure" again.

Those experts?

Learning as they go... something you don’t do. You already know it all obviously.

You got me, I'm all knowing and all seeing. LOL

But what myself and others like me do is to use common sense. Look at the facts and make decisions for ourselves.
What we won't do is allow ourselves to be led around by the nose by a bunch of talking heads from either sides.

Nobody should exercise power and control over anyone else.

It's really that simple.

It prevents slavery, murder, abuse, cops, and a host of other problems.

But you think people still need to test this theory since they're still "learning as they go."

Wrong. It's wrong. Always has been. Always will be.

No no no, it's ok as long as it's for "your own good". You have to take what your "bettors" are telling you to do like it's gospel.

We really need a sarcasm emoji here.

I don't know how you do it, but you are arguing with people who simply want to complain about things are common sense for anyone living within an educated society. I doubt they believe most of what they type. It's almost like guys like BMW are recruiting their malcontent friends just to parrot the stuff he finds on the Crazyweb.

Whitmer says wearing a mask reduces your chance of spreading the virus by 70%

https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/loc ... o-mask-up/

Can somebody tell me where she gets that number? The peer-reviewed study I posted here last week as published in mid-June says that after 3 weeks, mandatory mask laws reduce the daily uptick in cases by TWO percent.
