Last year, Trump won about 72% of the vote in Taylor County, beating now-President Joe Biden there by more than 46 percentage points — Trump's largest margin of victory of any county in Wisconsin. Taylor County now has the lowest vaccination rate in the state, with under 23% of people as of Friday having gotten at least one dose of the vaccine.
Taylor is far behind the statewide rate of about 42% having gotten at least one dose of vaccine, a figure that includes Wisconsinites of all ages and is a measure of how close we are to herd immunity — not just those 16 or older who are currently eligible for vaccineSynonyms for ''extreme Trumpism"
