New Study Debunks Clinton Conspiracy
(WatchDogReport.org) – Survey after survey has shown the economy and rising crime rates are issues of great importance to voters across America. It appears the Left finally understands that and has tried to pin the increase in violence on Republicans. Unfortunately for them, the Heritage Foundation did a deep dive into the facts and figures and debunked the theory pushed by Hillary Clinton and other desperate Democrats.
🚨🚨: NEW @Heritage report exposes Democrats' lies about murder rates in red states.
Spoiler: Democrat-led cities in red states are the driving force behind crime rates in those states. Dems own this crime crisis. https://t.co/s3eCS25DeU

Clinton and other Liberals like California’s Governor Gavin Newsom (D), tried to show the sharp rise in crime in Red states but dutifully ignored certain facts. Throughout most of the country, crimes are prosecuted at either the city or county level, which means those places have the greatest impact, and they are all almost uniformly a very deep blue.
The report, titled The Blue City Murder Problem, examines the 30 cities with the highest homicide rate per 100,000. It shows New Orleans, Louisiana (36.8), Baltimore, Maryland (29.1), and Birmingham, Alabama (28.0), were the top three. Not surprisingly, the prosecutors for the top two in that list, along with another 12/30, had the backing of ultra-progressive billionaire George Soros.
The authors of the study used some real-world examples to explain the damage done by mayors, city councils, and prosecutors from the Democratic Party. When removing blue urban areas from the calculations of red state homicides/100,000 population, these are some examples of what they found.
- Illinois dropped 55.12%
- Tennessee dropped 43.05%
- Missouri dropped 35.17%
Are Democrats right in saying the murder rates in red states are high? On the surface, yes. Does it hold true when the blue stains on the map are cleansed away? According to the Heritage study, that would be a resounding no.
