The Big Sort, Continued
Axios has a fascinating survey out this week about which states Americans are considering moving to and why. Not surprisingly in our current culture, a lot of Americans are factoring some amount of partisanship into that decision. Here are some of their findings:
• Republicans were more likely to consider moving to red states (51 percent) than blue states (20%) or swing states (28%).
• Democrats were more likely to consider moving to blue states (48%) than red states (25%) or swing states (27%).
• More than half of Republicans (58%) and Democrats (55%) said they thought about moving to a state where the government better reflects their political and policy values, while 69% of Democrats and 65% of Republicans considered moving to a state that’s a closer match with their cultural and social values.
