For a long time now, we’ve heard about an exodus that is taking place in blue states. Numerous American citizens are fleeing Democrat-dominated cities and states, for much greener pastures. This phenomenon only increased during COVID. But if you thought it would slow, once blue states reopened, you were dreaming.
In the years following COVID, Democrats have defunded police, jacked up taxes, opened the border, and ignored rising homelessness. Some blue areas are almost entirely unlivable, as shanty towns crowd the streets and drug addicts stumble from Starbucks bathrooms. And now, we are seeing just how many sane Americans fled for their lives.
From Just the News:
Los Angeles County posted the largest population decline of all counties in the United States in 2022, falling by 90,704 and continuing a downward trend…
Cook County, home to Chicago, lost 68,314 people from July 2021 to July of last year… The 10 counties in the U.S. that gained the most people were located in three states: Texas, Arizona and Florida…
The biggest losers were Los Angeles County, California (-90,704); Cook County, Illinois (-68,314); Queens County, New York (-50,112); Kings County, New York (-46,970); and Bronx County, New York (-41,143).
Well, what do ya know? The two largest blue counties saw their populations plummet last year. I guess they won’t be the largest for long, as they keep losing residents! Los Angeles County, which includes the City of Los Angeles and surrounding towns, lost a whopping 90,704 residents.
Chicago was the second worst. Cook Country, which includes Chicago and the surrounding region, lost 68,314. This is just a drop in the bucket, when you add the rest of California and Illinois, which seem to be leaking people faster than the Titanic.
Big surprise, the states that saw the biggest surge in growth were Southern red states. Texas, Arizona, and Florida saw a massive influx of newcomers. Sadly, many fear that liberals are infiltrating these traditionally red states and could possibly flip them. Arizona has gone from being a solid, conservative state to a dangerously liberal one.
They just elected a left-wing governor, who is opening the floodgates to illegal aliens. Could Texas and Florida be far behind? It’s idiotic for people to leave liberal states and then vote for liberals in their new homes. Why import the very same toxic politics that ruined CA?
But Democrats are the last people to see how their socialist policies are destroying America. They ruin a state and then flee to the next one to ruin. This only means that conservative Americans must fight harder to preserve their homes and way of life.
- Los Angeles and Cook Counties lost the most people in 2022.
- Tens of thousands of residents fled these blue states for Southern states.
- Texas, Arizona, and Florida saw the biggest increases in population.
