Crime Statistics Show Democrat Voters Much More Criminal Than Republicans, But What About Democrat Politicians?

It has been know for a longtime that heavily Democrat voting areas have much higher violent crime than heavily Republican voting areas. The chart at the left takes one swing state, Ohio, then compares the Violent Crime Rate of the biggest city, Celina, in the most Republican voting county at 77%, Mercer County|34   to the state as a whole and then to the most Democrat voting city, Cleveland, and then to an extremely Democrat voting neighborhood in Cleveland the 96%+ Democrat Cedar Ave Area.

The Violent Crime Rate geometrically skyrockets as the percent of Democrat voters goes up.  From 1 in the least Democrat area to 114 in the most Democratic area.  This is all documented in the movie “Who Wins When America Loses.”

On to the title of this article, What About Democrat Politicians?

We decided to look into that and it was not hard. Wikipedia has listed all criminal convictions of politicians for state and local government. It is here:

If you look at California this decade you will see almost every convicted politician is a Democrat, but being that California votes heavily Democrat that is not a fair comparison. We checked Utah to confirm that as it votes heavily Republican, but no politician was convicted of a crime in Utah (a positive thing), so then looked at South Carolina and it votes heavily Republican and most politicians there convicted of crime were Republicans which mirrors the case in California.  So what is a good way to compare the two parties in regard to criminality of their politicians?  It would be to take the swing states.  The three chief high population swing states are Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

That adds up to 9 Republicans and 30 Democrats, or a 233% higher crime rate for Democrat politicians that for Republican politicians.  This is a shocking number except to those that have studied the history of Democrats and their politicians. To those knowledgeable about Democrats this is not surprising at all.
