Thanks to the folks over at Breitbart for giving us the real numbers. There's a few loons who are always giving us these bizarre numbers that life's great in blue cities and states. According to them if you click your heals three times and fill your house with seven cats and five dogs, that will rid blue areas of all their issues. Well here's the real story.
Blue states saw the largest population declines in 2022, while red states topped the list with the most population growth, United States Census Bureau figures reveal. This year, California saw more than 343,000 residents leave the state — more than any other in the nation — followed by nearly 300,000 residents who left New York, and almost 142,000 residents who fled Illinois.
At the same time, more Americans resettled in Florida, more than 318,000, than any other state this year. Texas saw the second-largest net domestic migration with nearly 231,000 Americans moving to the state, followed by North Carolina, where almost 100,000 Americans moved.
