Culture Shift: Red States are Growing While Blue States Continue to Shrink


Something big is happening in the United States.

Conservative states are gaining population while liberals states are shrinking in population.

Texas, Florida, and Arizona are all seeing a surge in population over the last year.

Meanwhile states like New York, California, and Illinois are dropping.

This has painted a very clear picture:

Liberal leadership in blue states is driving citizens away.

Americans are sick of crime, draconian COVID-19 mandates, and a failing economy.

Rex CEO Peter Rex spoke to Fox News about his decision to move his own business to Texas from California.

According to Rex, we should expect more businesses and citizens to do the same in the coming months.

The stats back up what Rex is saying here.

California, New York, and Illinois have seen a huge drop off in their populations.

California has lost 1% of its entire population in the last year as reported by Breitbart:

California lost one percent of its population over the last year as residents fled for other states, the United States Census Bureau revealed this week.

While California’s population stands at more than 39.5 million, a record high, the state lost more than 367,000 residents over the last year. The state’s population decline is among the largest in the nation.

“In 2021, 20 states and the District of Columbia lost residents via net domestic migration. Largest domestic migration losses were in California (-367,299), New York (-352,185), and Illinois (-122,460),” Census Bureau experts wrote.

Contrast that to the huge migrations to Florida and Texas!

Fox News has more on the culture shift:

The Republican-led states that caught the most heat politically for their COVID-19 policies, Florida and Texas, each saw a population growth of 1%.

In terms of numbers alone, the largest gains in domestic migration (the movement of people from one area of the U.S. to another) were in Florida with 220,890, followed by Texas and Arizona. The largest domestic migration losses were in California, which lost 367,299 residents, followed by New York and Illinois.

The South was the only region that had a positive net domestic migration of 657,682 between 2020 and 2021. The Northeast region lost the most people due to domestic migration at -389,638.

Again, a very clear picture has been painted here.

The places where freedom still rings are where people want to be.
