Skip to comments.A California Exodus. But Where Are They Going?
Posted on 12/20/2012 5:43:13 PM PST by SeekAndFind
About 100,000 more people moved away from California in 2011 than relocated to the Golden State, according to the latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau.
In recent years, unemployment in the state has skyrocketed, while the cost of living has increased.
So, where are these Californians going? The Census Bureau calculated that the most popular destination is Texas, with 58,992 residents relocating there along with a number of California companies.
Arizona was next on the list, with 49,635 people moving, then Nevada, Washington, and Oregon.
Although in smaller numbers, others are still relocating to the Golden State. Texans make up the largest number of new California residents with 37,387 people, according to the report. That is followed by people from Washington (36,481), Nevada (36,159), Arizona (35,650), and New York (25,269).

Hopefully the ones in Texas will move on somewhere else. At least I hope they do.
They need to head west,like good little liberal lemmings.
” Unfortunately, far too many of them are coming to Texas....... “
The hot summers and the tornadoes and vicious thunderstorms help to knock some sense into them ...
MY sig. other and I look forward to becoming Arizonans. I promise you we are NOT liberals, and we look forward to being surrounded by more conservative people than here in California. Both of us are originally from other states: He from Lousiana and me from Michigan.
Neither of us is going to attempt to turn Arizona into a copy of California.
Thanks for your good wishes, and I agree with you.
Be sure to see Tombstone, Bisbee, Ramsey Canyon (the Humming Birds habitat), & Sierra Vista/Ft. Huachuca, when you get settled in.
I lived in Fort Collins, Colorado for a couple of years, ending in 1995. Everybody bragged about the Wild West legacy of self-reliance and ruggedness, but I saw very little of that along the Front Range.
Yes, a lot of Coloradans hated newcomers, Texans included. They had a joke that Oklahoma was the only trailer park to become a state.
Fort Collins is a college town. They had a LOT of problems with drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy, welfare mooching, etc. A lot of the younger crowd sat around in coffee shops and farmed attitudes.
Some of them looked down on me (friends of a younger BF) because I was in the straight world and had a regular job, but I also noticed that they were always up for bumming a meal or $$ or a place to crash off me.
They usually didn't have enough money for their own rent or food, but always had enough for anothe tattoo, piercing, or dose of recreational drugs.
In short, I was not all that impressed. Ut was an expensive place to live, too.
They’ve gone on to infect the rest of the country.
Those sound like interesting places to visit! Thank you! We're probably going to be moving to Kingman as soon as we have saved up enough $$ for car repairs and moving expenses.
Where we are now is high desert (Lancaster). Old-timers I've talked to tell me this used to be a nice place to live before they offered incentives for lowlifes and gangbangers to move up here from South Central L.A. I have had a couple of run-ins with the diversity myself. Will be very glad to get out of here!
My family of four left the Central Valley two years ago and we are loving Colorado. We bought along two red votes and hope to take CO out of the Dem column for the next election. Many of those fleeing California are, like us, conservative producers fed up with high taxes, ineffectual liberal government, and the flood of immigrants.
I went to Yavapai County.
I live in Ca. I know 4 different families leaving Ca.
Three are liberals, one is a conservative.
They are all moving to red states. (Utah and Idaho)
I asked each group if they were going to change the way they vote~~~they all said NO!
Sadly they will bring their liberal ways with them~
By all means see the Davis-Monthan Aircraft bone yard, The Pima Air Museum, and the DESERT Museum in Tucson.
If you're into birding, the area is also said to be one of the most prolific sites in the U.S.
The bad news is that many are coming to Oklahoma. The good news is that they are bringing their money and building houses.
I’ve often said and posted the left are like locusts.
I was shocked to see “Don't Californicate Colorado” bumper-stickers. At the time, California was still the "Promised Land". I had run out of money before I got to CA, so I stopped to make some money. ( I never made it to the left coast 'cause i figgered that there was something to the ads :"to get a good job, get a good education", so i went back to school.
My recollections of Denver and environs are that it was beautiful. Driving into the Rockies made me understand the meaning of the word ‘majestic’.
I'm sad that colorado got californicated.
These are the same people that voted for all that liberal $hit, now leaving because its hurting Them?
I hope that type stays out of my state, I welcome the rest.
“Classic example of crapping in your own nest to the point they can’t tolerate the stench. Move on and start the process all over again ... never ending cycle for those of a liberal persuasion. “
But wait a minute! I thought only the “good Conservative Californians” were moving to Texas! I’ve lived here in California for 72 years and have yet to “crap in my own nest” as you so crudely put it. Then I look at the stats in the article. Some 58,000 “Californians” moved to Texas, while 37,000 “Texans” moved here. So what gives? Are there really “Texans” who are willing to live “shit kicker heaven” and move to “the land of fruits and nuts!” Inquiring minds want to know !
