Voting with their feet

So, where is it better to live, Red States or Blue States?
The fastest-growing states continue to be in the Rocky Mountain region and the Southeast. Texas also is still attracting new residents at a rapid rate.

Nevada returned to the top spot, having increased in population by 2.9 percent to 2.6 million. Nevada held that title for 19 years in a row before being bumped off by Arizona last year. Arizona is the second-fastest-growing state, according to the current estimate, with a population increase of 2.8 percent to 6.3 million.

Only two states lost population. Michigan's population dipped by three-tenths of a percent, and Rhode Island saw a decrease of four-tenths of a percent.
The Census data in and to itself is fun. Now, for the map.

Then again, it could be a chicken vs. egg. Being that we know Conservative voters have better mental health, perhaps all the open minded, forward looking, positive types are coming together and leaving the bed-wetting nattering nabobs of negativism behind. Snicker.
