And it will continue to fall. As long as California’s standard of living and high rising real estate prices and draconian laws and heavy progressive policies smother the average resident, expect these numbers to continue to rise. If you’re a small business owner California is not the State you want to be in. Sad, used to be a great State long ago and the liberal policies have completely crushed it for the average middle class resident.

The population of the US grew 0.1% in 2021 and is expected to decline for the first time in US history in 2022.

“More than 653,000 Californians moved to another state in 2019, while about 480,000 people moved here from elsewhere in the country, according to data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. (The 2020 numbers aren’t available, but analyses of other 2020 data sets have yielded similar results.),” The New York Times reported over the weekend.

Where are they moving to? In Texas, 82,235 people moved from California in the last year. In Arizona, 59,713. Nevada is now home to 47,322 former California residents; Washington 46,791; and Oregon 37,927, the Times wrote.

“For many Californians, the high cost of living makes staying here nearly impossible, experts say. In Texas, the median home price is $329,000, less than half of what it is in the Golden State, according to Redfin, a real estate brokerage,” said the Times.

by declining birth rates, higher deaths from the pandemic and fewer people moving into the state from elsewhere in the U.S

its actually none of these, its people just simply leaving California. for obvious crime and financial reasons related to liberal politics agendas.

Not just common folk, but also corporations.

But the real and legitimate concern us that these people drag with them the failed policies of the left to their new-found homes thus turning red states into blue state dump heaps.

The population of the US grew 0.1% in 2021 and is expected to decline for the first time in US history in 2022. The primary reasons are a record reduction in total fertility rate, Covid-19 deaths and low immigration numbers.

But the real and legitimate concern us that these people drag with them the failed policies of the left to their new-found homes thus turning red states into blue state dump heaps.

Ah yes, the "failed policies" that produced the fifth largest economy in the world, the second longest life expectancy of the 50 US states at 81.7 years (Hawaii has the longest at 82.3 years, globally California would be no 20 right behind Canada where the US is number 54 at 77.28 yrs), budget surpluses every year since 2008 and about $75 billion stashed away in a rainy day fund. Yep, failure all around. Please go away then. The grass always looks greener somewhere else, until you find out what it's fertilized with. I laugh because a friend moved to Texas and was bragging about not having to pay income tax. His new home cost the same as mine. When I asked him what his property taxes were (at 2.5% of market value) it was more than my property and state income taxes in California. Yeah, some deal.
