The analysis of the Labor Department’s November unemployment data from the Republican National Committee (RNC) research team uncovered that the Republican-led states continued to outperform Democrat-led states in job recovery for 17 of the top 20 states, and the lowest unemployment in 16 of the top 20 states.
“More jobs are being recovered and unemployment is lower in red states,” the RNC research team wrote.
Without interruption from a Democrat-led state, the top 13 states leading in job growth as states across the country continue to end the coronavirus restrictions as Americans get back in the states run by a Republican governor.
Looking further into the data, the RNC analysis confirmed that 17 of the top 20 states led by Republican governors are doing a better job versus those led by Democrats governors. Plus, 18 of the top 20 recovering states have Republican-controlled legislatures. Both of these are the ratio that the analysis of the October data revealed.

Additionally, four Republican-led states — Utah, Idaho, Texas, and Arizona — have produced more jobs than the state had before the coronavirus pandemic started and any restrictions were put in place. Since the pandemic, Utah has had 143.6 percent of its jobs recovered, Idaho has had 118.2 percent, Texas has had 101.9 percent, and Arizona has had 101.5 percent.
The RNC analysis also showed that 24 states that are Republican-led recovered at least two-thirds of the jobs lost during the pandemic. On average, Republican-led states have recovered 85 percent of their lost jobs since the beginning of the pandemic. In comparison, only 73 percent of the Democrat-led states have recovered their lost jobs since the beginning of the pandemic.
“Republican leadership delivers. While Joe Biden and Democrats continue to lie to the American people about their failed Build Back Broke agenda, Republican-led states continue to lead our economic recovery by getting Americans back to work,” said RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel on the analysis of the Labor Department’s November data
