It's important to remember that people who are half Hispanic/half-non Hispanic (of any 'race'), they are considered Hispanic on the US census since Hispanic isn't a 'race'.
The US Census is all self-reported. I never understand how people think that there is this mystifying aspect to census enumerating....do you all believe that there is some super-computer somewhere counting people?

Also, really enjoying the tenuous grasp on demographics some people in this thread are exhibiting. Texas has a stronger economy than California because gas is cheaper??? I'm sorry, but....what???

First of all, why are you being so defensive? There's no need to be infantilizing.

I'm just stating how the self-reported data is translated into the US census. All I'm doing is posting numbers.

I read a statistic last week that most Californians are moving to Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. Looks like we want to stay in the southwest....

Nice GOP spin but it has nothing to do with the elections. Do you actually suppose the 1% oil company CEOs are lowering prices for Obama? It's called supply and demand economics. Overall demand fell in the eastern US due to Hurricane Sandy's destruction which has caused most transportation to cease or be severely limited the past week. Once everything is normal and demand is back up fear not, prices will rise again.

CA for the most part is decidedly Blue. You think the lowering of gas prices is gonna SUPER make people vote for Mr. O in a state that he pretty much already won?

1) portland, oregon. I know a lot of former californians who fled here. Most were of course white liberals but the most cited reason is "crime" in the ca neighborhoods they came from if you probe their cover story a bit.

2) boulder, colorado once again loads of former ca white people went here. mostly the snow bunny old money types who didn't need to explain why they had to leave.

3) phoenix, arizona. A stronghold of western conservatism. A lot far right wing orange county types ended up in this city.
lmao.

Portland and Phoenix. I don't know which one is more noticeable on this subject. Probably Portland. With Phoenix you can't tell if your in a suburb or Phoenix itself. So its just one big blob of population. Phoenx is alot more white than I would have ever expected. Portland I wasn't surprised at all. Both areas seem to attrack unusally high populations of white people for major Cities/Metro's

I'm surprised Kansas isn't on the list. A large number of Californians have moved to Johnson County, KS in the Kansas City metro area. Southern Johnson County is California light
