It turns out, Democrats don’t just run good cities or bad cities, they happen to run almost ALL of our cities, good AND bad. Matter of fact, Democrats “currently control city hall in 90 percent of the nation’s largest cities.” [g] That’s why they can turn up anywhere in the statistics, whether they be good statistics or bad ones. And that’s why it’s technically true for them to claim that they run the most successful regions. But let’s examine how this circumstance came to be.
