Monica Showalter reports that even the illegals are fleeing California!:
California, whose new leftist governor, Gavin Newsom, has big ambitions to be the counter-president for now, and eventually replace President Trump, has this one little problem that always comes of socialist rule: the locals are fleeing.
Now it turns out half the ones who haven’t fled are thinking about it.
Just over half of California’s registered vote[rs] have considered leaving the state, with soaring housing costs cited as the most common reason for wanting to move, according to a new poll.
Young voters were especially likely to cite unaffordable housing as a reason for leaving, according to the latest latest [sic] UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll conducted for the Los Angeles Times. But a different group, conservatives, also frequently suggested they wanted to leave — and for a very different reason: They feel alienated from the state’s political culture.
That just-over-half figure cited by the Los Angeles Times is actually 54%, broken down by 40% Republican and 14% Democrat voters. They want out and are dreaming of new lives in states where jobs are forming and housing isn’t just for billionaires. Walk around any place in California and recognize that half the people you meet are people who want the hell out.
But it’s not just registered voters. Despite that vast banquet of goodies California has offered to migrants with zero regard to immigration status — sanctuary protection; driver’s licenses; automatic voter registration; ballot-harvesting privileges; free education well beyond K–12; a vast NGO/church network set up with state funds to “serve” illegals; free housing; free health care for the pregnant; no need to learn English; and, coming soon, free health care for illegals up to the age of 26 — even the migrants, both legal and illegal…are fleeing.
