This Map Showing The Percentage of People Who Want To Move Out Of Their State Is Ass Backwards

Gallup — Every state has at least some residents who are looking for greener pastures, but nowhere is the desire to move more prevalent than in Illinois and Connecticut. In both of these states, about half of residents say that if given the chance to move to a different state, they would like to do so. Maryland is a close third, at 47%. By contrast, in Montana, Hawaii, and Maine, just 23% say they would like to relocate. Nearly as few — 24% — feel this way in Oregon, New Hampshire, and Texas.

 

I’m not buying this for a second. Maine? Oregon? MONTANA??? There’s zippy chance Maryland should fall behind any of those places in this poll. We have practically everything you could ever want. If you want to hit the beach in the summer, you can do that. If you want to hit the slopes in the winter, by god we’ve got those too. Plus two major cities, numerous casinos, and wide open country down on the eastern shore if that’s your scene. Why would anyone ever want to leave?

On the other hand, it’s as if the folks in those bumblefuck states live in an orb of blissful ignorance. I imagine they’re like Charlie Kelly and have never been outside the limits of their hometowns. Not a clue in the world what else might be out there, and no desire to find out either. Good! Good, more for me and you. The less Montana and I know about each other, the better. Just keep doing whatever it is that you do, and us East Coasters will keep dominating life. If you want to sit on your front porch and stare out into nothing for the rest of your life, that’s no skin off our backs.
