An annual survey of where Americans have moved finds that the Democrat-run blue states lost more citizens than ever before.
With draconian COVID crackdowns, skyrocketing crime rates, failing schools, and surging taxes, citizens have fled blue states by the millions.
According to the New York Post:
New Jersey led the nation with 70 percent of the people involved in moves fleeing the Garden State, compared to just 30 percent who migrated in, according to United Van Lines’ 45th Annual National Movers Study.
Illinois — home to crime- and shooting-ridden Chicago — came in second with 67 percent of the moves recorded were of residents leaving the state, while just 27 percent were in-bound.
New York ranked third, with 63 percent of movers headed for the exits and 37 percent settling in.
Nearly 30 percent those who fled the Empire State said “family” was a primary factor in their decisions, with about 12 percent citing “cost.”
California — long a driver of population growth — was fifth-worst for movers heading for the exits, with 59 percent fleeing the state while only 41 percent of newcomers moved in.
If you live in a blue state, get out while you can.
