The Blue state exodus

Over the past ten years, millions of Americans have fled Democratic-leaning Blue states for Republican-leaning Red states, according to a new report from the Manhattan Institute.

The Great California Exodus: A Closer Look, focuses mainly on where and why California residents are fleeing the state, but using data from Census and the Internal Revenue Service, the study clearly documents that Americans are fleeing Democratic governance everywhere.

According to the data, California (+11 Democrat) lost 1.9 million citizens over the past ten years, while New York (+19 Democrat) lost 1.6 million, Illinois (+13 Democrat) 880,000, Michigan (+11 Democrat) lost 708,000, and New Jersey (+16 Democrat) 492,000. Meanwhile, Florida (+20 conservative) gained 1.3 million, Texas (+37 conservative) gained 781,000, North Carolina (+21 conservative) gained 714,ooo, Arizona (+29 conservative) gained 423,000, and Georgia (+25 conservative) gained 393,074.

These numbers do not include foreign immigration or population growth from natural births. So even though California lost 1.9 million Americans over the past ten years, it’s population still grew by more than 3 million.

Why are Americans fleeing Blue states for Red states? The report concludes:

The data also reveal the motives that drive individuals and businesses to leave California. One of these, of course, is work. States with low unemployment rates, such as Texas, are drawing people from California, whose rate is above the national average. Taxation also appears to be a factor, especially as it contributes to the business climate and, in turn, jobs. Most of the destination states favored by Californians have lower taxes. States that have gained the most at California’s expense are rated as having better business climates. The data suggest that many cost drivers—taxes, regulations, the high price of housing and commercial real estate, costly electricity, union power, and high labor costs—are prompting businesses to locate outside California, thus helping to drive the exodus.

Population change, along with the migration patterns that shape it, are important indicators of fiscal and political health. Migration choices reveal an important truth: some states understand how to get richer, while others seem to have lost the touch. California is a state in the latter group, but it can be put back on track. All it takes is the political will.

Illinois in poorest fiscal condition of all states

Illinois' financial condition continued to deteriorate in fiscal 2011, leaving it the state with the lowest level of net assets in the country, as its liabilities, including money owed for public pensions, grew, according to a report released on Thursday by the state's auditor general.

Illinois' $43.8 billion deficit in terms of net assets at the end of June 2011 rose from $37.5 billion in fiscal 2010, when it also ranked the lowest among states

In fiscal 2011, New Jersey's equivalent deficit in terms of net assets was $33.4 billion, while Massachusetts' was $22.8 billion and Connecticut's $14 billion, according to the report.

California, which shares low credit ratings with Illinois, had a $10.5 billion deficit at the end of fiscal 2011. All of the other states included in the report had positive net assets, with Texas at the top with $97.3 billion.

Who would want to live there in a few years.

California is in the midst of replacing all it's outward migrating legal citizens with illegals.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

Believe me, I see the pains of the California exodus every single day.... The population growth from transplants here is something astonishing really.

The fvcked up part about all of it, is they bring their policy ideas with them that caused them to flee their original state in the first place... They're like a virus.

People in Montana have said the same thing for years. They get elected to town boards and demand the same ####### that bankrupted the towns and state they left.The locals hate it.

We have a lot of Californians here and they have been moving here in droves for 15 years. The main reason being property values - real estate agents here send flyers to California residents with the homes they can get.. "Trade your crappy one bedroom house on it's half million dollar plot and come live here on an acre and 3500 square feet!". For someone who has lost a job sitting on a few hundred thousand in equity I can understand the enticement... This has slowed since 2008 as it is more difficult to get the equity out of their homes in CA.

We do get some trying to push the political agendas they remember at home but for the most part we do not get the radicals (they have better choices like Oregon)

Isn't Florida a Blue State now? It is full of them New Yorkers.

It's purple. The state government is all Republican, one statewide federal office is held by a Democrat and the state went for the Democratic ticket in 2008 after going for the Republican ticket the previous two elections. It's a mixed bag, really. You've got blue South Florida and the mostly blue I-4 corridor but the rest of the state is pretty red.
