That would probably be the result any time you did that survey anywhere. People are always thinking of change weather they ever actually do it or not. Meaningless.

Well I don't know about anyone else in Florida, don't you think things might actually get better here if some of these people would actually leave.

That means 4 out of 5 like it! Some folks see a glass that's half full while others see it as half empty. In reality, it's alway full of something. If it's got half water, the other half is probably air. It's all on how you want to look at it. You have to take the good with the bad and some folks just don't seem to get that.

I would say that probably less the 50% like it. It may be more like 20 to 25% might actually like it here. That does not mean they hate it or are leaving anytime soon, they just can think of other places they may like better. Polls don't mean anything it depends on how the questions are asked and they can ask them to get a pre determined outcome.

I answered a poll once by the BCA, Billiard congress of America. When I saw the published results it was ridiculous. They claimed pool to be the number three played sport in America. You know how they got that? They asked if you have played a game of pool in the last 12 months. That made you a player and added to the number. They wanted a big number they could show potential sponsors so they asked questions and did their own evaluation. Polls are a joke.

I think New Jersey state officials would be thrilled if only 1 in 5 residents were thinking of leaving here.

Census Bureau data reveal a sharp downturn in New Jersey’s population growth in the 2002-06 period and a sharp upturn in the number of people leaving the state,” the two wrote in a commentary published by the largest circulation daily, The Star-Ledger. On its front page, it published an article with the headline, “Jerseyans leave at alarming rate.” New Jersey has the distinction of joining California, Louisiana, and New York as having more people leaving than arriving or just staying.
