"The COVID-19 pandemic created difficult choices for state leadership to make to manage the spread of the virus. Daily COVID-19 data were analyzed to assess the impact of political party on the spread. Two-sample t- tests were used to determine if there is a difference in the mean of a maximum 7-day period of positive cases based on party affiliation as well as gender. Evidence suggests that states with Democrat leadership of the House of Representatives and Senate had lower COVID-19 case rates as compared to states with Republican leadership. Some other differences were also observed."
