How right you are!!!!!

 

Just look at my state.

 

Democratic Governor and, in our biggest county, an ALL DEMOCRATIC County Commission, first time since 1964. Three long time REPUBLICAN INCUMBENTS thrown out.

 

In NC, the lighting up will be Carolina Blue!!!!!!

 

As an aside to the political changes here in NC; those New York Democrats are also increasing the value of our homes exponentially.

New York ranks No. 1 in losing residents to other states

Anyone familiar with New York knows why they're losing about 186,000 people per year. As the baby boom generation reaches retirement age, they don't want anything to do with New York's bitter winter weather. Massive numbers of retirees are moving out of NY, going primarily to Florida.

 

That also explains why Florida is one of the top states for new residents.

New York ranks No. 1 in losing residents to other states

New York is top in the U.S. in terms of its residents leaving for other states.

 

In 2015, New York had a population of 19.5 million. By 2016 (the latest year available), it shrank to about 19.3 million, resulting in a net drop of 186,000 people.

 

This trend has been the case for awhile, as census data shows more New York citizens have been moving out of the state since around 2011. This exodus from New York is due to many factors, the top ones cited by experts being recent tax hikes, high cost of living, a poor jobs climate, and unideal weather.

 

According to recent data, New York state tops the charts in terms of outmigration from the state, and is followed by Illinois, California, New Jersey and Connecticut. All five of these states have negative net migration rates.

 

While more New Yorkers are leaving the state each year, the question must be asked of where they are going.The top five states that New York migrants head to are Florida, New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

 

In comparison, the top five largest in-migration states are, in order, Florida, Texas, Arizona, North Carolina, and Georgia.

 

Southern and Western states are faring much better in terms of population growth than their northern neighbors. Also according to the data, those leaving the top out-migration states such as New York and Illinois are heading to these five states and a few others after they leave.

 

Since the recession in the mid-2000s, migration to Sunbelt states rapidly picked up as these states in the South and West have more opportunities for employment as well as more affordable housing than counterparts in the north and east, according to experts cited in U.S. News and World Report.

States with high unemployment, higher costs of living, and colder climates cannot compete with these regions of the country — and it shows in migration rates.

 

In terms of percentages, New York ties with New Jersey at minus-0.9 percent in terms of net migration. It is closely followed by Connecticut, with minus-1 percent net migration, and Illinois and North Dakota tied for third with a minus-1.1 percent change in migration.

 

Looking at New York City specifically, the area with the largest percentage of residents lost to other states came from the zip code 10075, in the Upper East Side, which faced a 9.3 percent decrease in its population from 2015 to 2016. The area with the most population growth in the county, however, is in Far Rockaway, Queens.

 

In addition to counties that make up New York City, other counties in the state that account for much of the population decline are Erie, Rockland and Suffolk counties.

 

New York's population decline is due to many factors, differing per family. In an interview with the New York Daily News, the Empire Center's E.J. McMahon cited his reasoning for the departure from the state: "The stories continue to be a lack of economic opportunity upstate ... and downstate it's just cost."

A big thank you to the dimms leadership in NY!!  This will go a long way to help President Trump in the 2020 General election.  

 

With the dimms running on "The Green New Deal", President Trumps just needs to focus on the many accomplishments since 2016.  

 

Good Job Mr. President, run on your record because the dimms don't have a very good record to point to.
