The five states Americans can’t wait to leave

The five states Americans can’t wait to leave

statesAmericans are voting with their feet, leaving overcrowded, over regulated and overtaxed states – particularly in the Northeast, home to liberalism – for more affordable states.

Zero Hedge reports,

The Northeast continues to experience a moving deficit with New Jersey (67 percent outbound) and New York (65 percent) making the list of top outbound states for the fourth consecutive year. Two other states in the region — Connecticut (63 percent) and Massachusetts (57 percent) — also joined the top outbound list this year. The exception to this trend is Vermont (62 percent inbound), which moved up two spots on the list of top inbound states to No. 3.

Moving Out – The top outbound states for 2015 were:

New Jersey
New York
Illinois
Connecticut
Ohio
Kansas
Massachusetts
West Virginia
Mississippi
Maryland

So if all those liberals are leaving blue states, where are they going? Hopefully not to red states to ruin them too. Fortunately, many of them are moving to states like Oregon. It has only recently become extremely liberal, so it hasn’t had the decades of entrenched, failed policies of Northeastern states yet.

Oregon
South Carolina
Vermont
Idaho
North Carolina
Florida
Nevada
District of Columbia
Texas
Washington
