Top 5 Most Stressed-Out U.S. Cities Are Run by Democrats, Research Shows

The country’s Top-5 most stressed out cities are run by Democrats, according to a new study this week.

The study by WalletHub released Monday puts Cleveland, Detroit, Baltimore, Birmingham, Alabama, and Philadelphia at the top of the list.

Cleveland, Ohio’s second-most populous city, has a long and serious list of stressors that includes being the most-dangerous U.S. city, according to the survey. Its crime rate is 5.5 times above the state average and 4.3 times higher than the national average.

Like many U.S. cities, Cleveland is in the situation of rising crime amid a dwindling police force.

Over the past two years, the city has lost nearly 400 officers to resignations, retirements and transfers.

Democrat Mayor Justin Morris Bibb vowed after a July 9 mass shooting to redouble efforts to beef up the city’s police force. But such promises appear too little, too late for City Council member Michael Polensek.

“As of yesterday, 101 people have lost their lives in the city due to homicides,” Polensek, who has been on the council since 1978, said Wednesday at a public meeting. “At the present path that we are on, we will hit a 30-year record for homicides in the city … . I’m not going to live like this.”

He also said the city is down 313 officers from where it was in 2020.

The city also has the country’s second-highest poverty rate.

Detroit comes in No. 2 on the WalletHub list in large part over its crime, too.

According to recent statistics, using a scale of 1-100, the violent crime rate in Detroit is 94.3, compared to the national average of 22.7.

Detroit residents, as a result, are four times more likely to be a victim of violent crime, compared to residents of other U.S. cities.

Democrat Mayor Mike Duggan this spring acknowledged that the spike in violent crime during the pandemic remains a problem and said his administration is addressing the issue by improving wages for police officers.

However, he acknowledged that’s not enough.

“Detroit Police are very good at taking the gun out of the shooters’ hands, but they don’t have the ability to take the anger out of the shooters’ hearts,” he said.

Baltimore, which has struggled in recent decades with crime, averages one murder every 15 hours.

Over the past July Fourth weekend, two people were killed and 28 were wounded in a mass shooting at a block party. One victim was just 13.

“We will not rest until the people responsible are held accountable,” Democrat Mayor Brandon Scott said after the shooting. However, more than two weeks later, police have yet to name suspects or make an arrest.

Birmingham has a crime rate that is 112% higher than the national average. Though Alabama is among the most conservative-leaning states in the U.S., Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin is a Democrat.

Philadelphia has 230 homicides so far this year. However the number represents a 21% decrease from the previous year, according to the city.

Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney is leaving office next year due to term limits.

In a Democrat primary in May to replace him, the winner was Cherelle Parker, who served for 10 years as a state representative before her election to the city council in 2015.

Her victory over a progressive candidate appears to be the latest indication of how residents of some of the country’s biggest U.S. cities feel about persistent crime and poverty after the pandemic.

In February, then-Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a progressive, lost her bid for reelection, and last year, residents ousted San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, another progressive, according to The Associated Press.

    I would like to think that people who voted for the POS biden will wake up and see what he and his party of sexual deviants is doing to America for their own gain. But I’m not holding my breath. After 2+ years of bidens nonsensical “leadership”, this country is a shithole, and there are many sheeple still defending the demented dumbfu*k!
    FJB!!

    • Somebody says:

      They will never wake up as they enjoy not having to work and living off of the taxpayers. They love to do drugs, party all night and spit out more babies for us to support. One of the laziest race to ever be let into this Country and they are coming here from around the World to get their freebies and benefits promised to them by the Democrats.

      • Louis Galmarini says:

        These ‘people’ have been given too much rope in the name of equity, diversity, inclusion, and equal rights. It’s time now to find higher trees…

  • Somebody says:

    And we all know who and what are doing the majority of killings and crimes in all Democrat run States and Cities, damn shame they were ever brought here or let into this Country.

  • Sherry says:

    Alabama is Trump State. I know Birmingham, AL. Crime is up but look who is mayor and what kind of people lives there.

  • Louis Galmarini says:

    When you have a race which doesn’t total 13% of the entire U.S. population, breeding 4-7 times the rate of any other race, and a political party which not only (literally) totally supports them (financially) to live a VERY comfortable existence, while allowing them to commit ANY crime w/ no punishment whatsoever – WELCOME TO CLEVELAND.

    I can name the root cause for ALL these cities failures in two words – FUCKING NIGGERS…

    It has been 400 years since they were brought to this country, (sold by their tribal elders through auction). It’s been 160 years since they were freed by a Republican President, (Abraham Lincoln). It’s been almost 60 years since they were granted complete equal rights. On top of that, they’ve enjoyed more “racial privileges” than any other race, including numerous “entitlements” such as FREE education, FREE housing, FREE food, FREE clothing, FREE health care, and FREE employment.

    Sidenote: Compliments of Affirmative Action, (which has been ‘law’ since 1975), if the applicant is a minority, many times they’re automatically hired to a position to fill a minority ‘quota’ mandated by the federal government, which states a company must have a minimum %age of minorities hired in contrast to the total work force. They are hired, even though (in many cases), their lack of education and/or experience, (which is many times – zero), is not even considered, and they are hired over more qualified individuals. This totally flies in the face of common sense and good, standard business practices. So, why would an employer do this? If they don’t comply by the ‘law’, they will experience a stiff fine, possible bad PR fall-out, and/or possible shut down of the company.

    Again, this has been the ‘law’ permeated ALL segments of corporate America since 1975. Result? Corporate America, from huge corporations down to small ‘mom & pop’ businesses have suffered exponentially. Minorities being placed in middle and upper-management positions w/o the education/experience has decimated many corporations…and it continues…
    In the safety sectors, (fire, police, EMS, medical), minorities are given extra points on hiring tests, and/or moved to the top of list(s) for ‘consideration’ for promotions. The result of Affirmative Action in this sector is not only poor management – it’s dangerous, and many people have died through the years accordingly.

    However, I digress…

    The institution of ‘work’ is usually never even considered, given they can exist (very comfortably) on everything which is now GIVEN to them by the wonderful bleeding hearted vote stealers of our government. Unfortunately, being given EVERYTHING needed to live isn’t enough for many blacks. Therefore, since they don’t have to work for a living, (and have all the time in the world), they commit felony crime to get whatever it is they want, (and that they don’t have). Hence: They’ll rob you in broad daylight at the subway station, commit armed robbery at the local convenience store, and break into your grandparents’ house, beating them (to death), and taking everything they worked their entire lives for – just so they can have drug money for the day. Wonderful…
    Additionally, we all now are forced to ‘celebrate’ blacks. They have all-inclusive black college’s, special holidays, and an entire month that pays special tribute to their race…and STILL, they have refused to assimilate into our culture/society each day. But instead, chose to continue playing the ‘victim’, (read: ‘Weez bein’ oppressed! Weez bein’ oppressed!”). Nothing seems to help these people. Why? Because although there are (literally) HUNDREDS of governmental agencies and charities attempting to help them – THEY REFUSE TO HELP THEMSELVES, thus are perpetual ‘victims’ forever – OF THEIR OWN CAUSING. They are the only culture on the planet that seems incapable of improving their quality of life. I feel sorry for the very small percentage that have assimilated into our culture successfully. These are the ‘black people’ who are my friends and neighbors. As for the rest of them, I’m sorry, but they’re just not like us and they NEVER will be. I refer to the rest of these ‘people’ as– NIGGERS.

    EXAMPLE:

    FACT: Although blacks don’t make up 13% of the entire U.S. population, (actual, 12.74%), they account and are responsible for, (no less than), 71% of ALL crime. (Think about that for just a second). That’s taken right from the front page of the DOJ website.

    Some snakes are deadly, others are harmless. In the wild, all snakes are avoided because it’s nearly impossible to differentiate between them. The same holds true with what I call – ‘the 13%’. I avoid them as much as possible because I don’t feel safe around them. If you don’t believe that’s a fair statement of assessment, consider this: The propensity towards violence that black people display is not cultural – it’s genetics. It’s in their genes/DNA. In other words, they’re ‘wired’ like this from birth – and there is NOTHING a civilized society can do (other than w/ proper medication), to protect themselves from such individuals. It’s an inheritance from their ancestors. African tribes eternally fighting w/ each other for HUNDREDS of years w/ no governance, no civility, and no peace. Result? You can’t go anywhere, (fast-food restaurant, carnival, or to just get a free bag of chips with my 10-year-old granddaughter), without some incident ensuing if they’re present. Why is this? Because they have no ‘skin in the game’ to speak of. No self-worth nor purpose in life. Just the propensity for violence, which is triggered w/ the least resistance to anything they feel they’re ‘entitled’ to, (which is – EVERYTHING). In addition, (and compliments of our government who coddles and strokes these animals), they’re aware they will experience (almost) no negative consequences for ANYTHING they do/say, but which results in huge negative consequences for others. All compliments of the Democrats who break EVERYTHING they touch. So much for all their awesome programs to make things “better”.

    Over one-and-a-half centuries since emancipation, trillions of dollars of free stuff, and over half-a-century of UNCONSTITUTIONAL Affirmative Action, equates that the most expensive experiment in history is a complete and utter failure. Initially, Affirmative Action was sold as a ten-year diversion from our Constitution; it’s now been SIXTY years. No matter how long or how hard we (try to) pound the square peg into the round hole, it is NOT going to fit. The experiment has failed…PERIOD. Apart from a small minority who have assimilated to a civilized culture, the majority have remained feral. It is long past time to stop fooling ourselves into thinking that all our tried and failed programs will correct this, as the evidence overwhelmingly shows – it will not.

    Reparations? How about a one-way airfare back to Africa. Throw in a Louis Vuitton purse, a carbon fiber spear, a chucking manual, a mud hut blueprint, and a heartfelt KICK IN THE ASS – DONE! There, they can continue killing each other daily, (as they do now), and we can live in relative peace.

    WE DO NOT HAVE A RACE PROBLEM. WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A RACE.

    More correctly, we also have a problem with the political party enabling and promoting this Third World chaos and anarchy. Bottom line? As my Father told me long ago: There are TRULY only two things you can do w/ animals – cage ‘em or kill ‘em. DONE!

    First off – there is NO WAY this article can be backed up w/ CREDIBLE evidence. No mention of NYC or Chicago? I have one question for the BAFOON who wrote this article. Who are your CREDIBLE sources…or did you just make this shit up as you wrote…js.
