Study: Americans Are Fleeing Blue States

As Democratic governors continue to raise taxes and implement more COVID policies, the latest data shows that Americans are fleeing for red states.

United Van Lines released a new study, which showed that the top five states that experienced an exodus are all led by Democrats.

From the report:

South Dakota (69%), South Carolina (63%), West Virginia (63%) and Florida (62%) were also revealed as the top inbound states for 2021. Meanwhile, states like Illinois (67%), New York (63%), Connecticut (60%) and California (59%), which have regularly appeared on the top outbound list in recent years, again ranked among states with the largest exoduses.

As for why people are leaving blue states and migrating to red ones?

According to United Van Lines, “31.8% of Americans who moved did so in order to be closer to family – a new trend coming out of the pandemic as priorities and lifestyle choices shift.” The company writes that 32.5% of Americans moved for a new job or job transfer, a significant decrease from 2015, when more than 60% of Americans cited a job or transfer.”

The report credited much of this migration to COVID-related issues. On top of that, many Americans are able to work remotely so they do not need to live in more expensive blue states.

“This new data from United Van Lines is indicative of COVID-19’s impact on domestic migration patterns, with 2021 bringing an acceleration of moves to smaller, midsized towns and cities,” said Michael A. Stoll, economist and professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’re seeing this not only occur because of Americans’ desire to leave high density areas due to risk of infection, but also due to the transformation of how we’re able to work, with more flexibility to work remote.”
