Data from a recent Gallup poll shows that people living in Connecticut and Illinois aren't too happy with their environment: half of residents say that, if given the chance, they'd move to a different state.
The states where people want to stay? Texas and Montana come out really well.
In Illinois, 50% of respondents want to leave, while only 49% do in Connecticut. Maryland was a close third, with 47% of respondents expressing the same desire.
But in Montana, Hawaii, and Maine, 23% reported they'd move if the opportunity arose. And only 24% of respondents felt that way in Texas.

Count me in the 50% of despondents in Illinois.
Me too. 12 months and I am out of Illinois.
I can’t blame them - I was looking at real estate and the minute I looked over the river in IL I noticed the real estate taxes were almost double what they are in MO. I can imagine how bad they are for everything else there.
They will move to a new state and continue voting in the way that destroyed the state they just left.
We need border fences, around the blue states.
The 24% that said they wanted to leave Texas are not real Texans.
People in the dark green states (including California).....
If you believe in basic Conservative/ Libertarian principles which include low taxation, the right to bear arms, weak unions, freedom of religion, among other cherished rights of we Texans, you are welcome to our great state!
If you are tax and spend bed wetting Liberal or RINO who wants to transfer your dark green state values here....STFO!
Illinois is circling the drain...
I love GA. Why’s it up on this list?
I suspect if this poll was taken on August 1st, the results may be a little different.
I love Texas, but the heat is a beating.
I was surprised to see Arizona in green, meaning that there is a high desire to leave. Every year more people come to Arizona than leave. So what is going on?
One answer might be that there are a LOT of people (relative to the state’s population) coming and going. With so much movement, many would desire to come and to leave.
Another possible answer is that people reluctantly come for jobs. This would be like the northerner coming to the south for work, then “educating” his new neighbors on “how it’s done up north.” Or like the liberals I know who “would move to Europe in a heart beat,” but they “can’t get a job.”
Here are some other visually oriented sources:
I think of the last of these as the eye-ball chart. If you put your cursor on a state, only lines for that state are shown. Thicker means more people, and color indicates net direction of flow between region. A text box with numbers also pops up when you put your cursor over a state or over a line.
I don’t understand MN.
4th highest income/2nd highest estate tax.
stagnant UI rate.
state run by educrat unions.
oh well. go Wild.
