Fleeing Blue America

Elections have consequences. It’s a shame that this exodus was not fully captured in the census. Once again, red state representation will be understated until the next census.

The company say Phoenix, Houston and Dallas were the top three cities welcoming new residents while New York City, Anaheim and San Diego in California saw the highest numbers of people leave.


The move away from the likes of New York was driven, in part, by an increased fear of living in densely populated cities amid the pandemic.


In addition to grappling COVID-19, New York City in particular has also struggled with escalating crime and homelessness in recent months.


Police say crime has spiked in Manhattan after hundreds of homeless were rehoused there because of the COVID-19 pandemic.




‘Northeastern states make up four out of the seven states with the most outbound moves, and none of them make the top eight for inbound moves. New York led the way, followed by New Jersey and Maryland. But California edged out Maryland for fourth place on the outbound list,’ the NAMS report concluded.


‘Pennsylvania and Michigan also made the list, and both states have made the top 10 fairly consistently for the past few years. Maryland has made the list for outbound moves since 2015, and it has ranked between second and fifth places. In 2020, it took fifth place.’


The moving company data showed that states that have much less densely populated areas were a big draw card for people looking to relocate amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Let’s hope a significantly high percentage of those fleeing Blue America don’t bring their blue voting records with them.

    We’re feeling it in Arizona big time and many are bringing their liberal politics with them.
    In our county, we used welcome those from California but now, not so much. Besides their political views, many are also culturally different and they expect us to do things the California way, which most of the time people say no.
    And those Californians don’t know how to flush the damn toilet.

    Californians expect their toilets to double as bubblers.

    “Let’s hope a significantly high percentage of those fleeing Blue America don’t bring their blue voting records with them.”

    P-shaw! Of course they will. They don’t realize that the Dem Party is what makes the big city living unbearable, they believe whatever the Party line is. And that is COVID is causing the exodus. Think the Dem Party doesn’t KNOW that the results of their actions will spread liberalism by means of fleeing liberal? It works exactly like COVID except conservatism dies instead of people. I wouldn’t be surprised if one was modeled after the other.
