The biggest winners of the 2020 election have turned out to be state and local governments, especially those run by Democrats. Democrats in Congress have showered them with federal largesse, and President Biden is now reducing their borrowing costs by driving a stampede of investors into tax-exempt municipal bonds.

Demand for muni debt has surged this year even from last year’s high levels as well-to-do Americans seek protection from the expected income and capital gains tax increases. Investors have plowed a record $69 billion into muni-bond mutual and exchange traded funds during the first seven months of this year, driving yields to historic lows.
