EXODUS: Nearly HALF of Californians Are Considering Leaving the State

New analysis finds that almost half of the people in California are considering leaving the state. Half.

People are tired of high taxes, high crime, the war on energy and much more.

Many people in the political and media world expect that California Governor Gavin Newsom is standing by, waiting to jump into the 2024 race if Biden doesn’t run. Is he really the best choice? This is part of his record.

The Messenger reports:

Nearly Half of All Californians Are Thinking About Leaving

Although 70% of Californians enjoy living in the Golden State, about four in ten residents say they are now considering moving away, according to a new poll conducted by research firm Strategies 360.

The survey, published in partnership with the Los Angeles Times and a consortium of nonprofits, showed that financial concerns played a significant role in residents’ decision to potentially move elsewhere.

“Even if folks make the same income as they did even just three years ago, their sense of financial security has fallen dramatically,” Ben Winston, a political consultant for Strategies 360, told the Times.

Only 28% of households earning between $50,000 and $100,000 say they can comfortably save for the future, and 17% find it difficult to keep up with bills from month to month — double the rate from a few years ago.

Even those who make over $100,000 are starting to feel squeezed by inflation and a higher cost of living: Just 57% of people from high-earning households now say they feel financially comfortable, down from 77% in 2020.

These are just stunning numbers.

Newsom is in total denial about what’s happening to his state.

The Golden State really needs new leadership.
