    I'll answer here*.

    I think there will be a marked difference in red state and blue state response and results

    2. Cuomo will be a hero (and Newsome and "Snake" Inslee), Whitmer and Dewine (Mich and Oh) will be worth watching, I think their poll numbers will sky rocket, and the campaigns will use Trump's quotes and insults as a badge of honor.

    3. Limited, most in state workers will move to other hospitals in the state, same for ventilators.

    * If I wait for others to post, people ask why I don't give my views. If I answer in the OP, posters avoid the OP questions and discussion preferring a string of ad homs. If I separate the OP from my views, it is called serial posting. Since this is the format which is most effective, I will use this format of providing my answers in the subsequent post.

    If it is accurate, New York will be in better position than the rest of the nation.

    One question which I did not ask in the OP was whether there will be a negative correlation between "closeness" of the governor to Trump and the states emergence from covid 19.

    This thread reminds me of the liberal pundit who ignorantly suggested that conservatives were more likely to get sick than liberals because our optimism would presumably make us less careful.

    I have been listening to Cuomo every day. Here is my impression. He talks way too much. His briefings could be cut in third. He just rambles on and on and on. He also just seems to be complaining about stuff. I haven't really heard him say what he is actually doing to make things better, or giving any hopeful news. And his monotonous tone of voice and New York accent grates on my nerves.

    EGGzackly. Initially, it was all about criticizing Trump, then he remembered he needed federal funds, so he started praising Trump.
    The rest of the nation is NOT New York, so I have no idea why the national media is spending so much time covering what Cuomo says.
    Just provide the statistics and report the news.

    I am seriously bothered by the fact that Trump has outright said that he's told Pence not to bother helping/working with governors who criticize him. Given how many lives are at stake, I don't think I'm going overboard to call that behavior sociopathic.

    It's pretty obvious they're grooming him to be the Democrat nominee.

    so it is good that so many people were getting sick so quickly in New York?
