Or is it still New York?

I haven't been able to find anything about an official announcement, but I think the two states have swapped positions by now.

Sorry, the poll question is: In your opinion and with the current growth trends, do you think Florida is now the 3rd most populous state?

If it hasn't yet, I'm sure it will as soon as another "polar vortex" winter grips the northeast.

I doubt it. NYC has been having a mini-boom and seeing some growth. The city had built some 125 new apartment buildings all over the place.

Does it really matter in the case of Florida? More than half the people who move to Florida move out anyway.

At least people who live in the other top 5-6 populous states (CA, TX, NY, IL, PA) stay forever.

Yes, from the sources I checked NY still outranks FL by around 500K.

According to the latest census estimates, which were in July of 2013, only 98k separated the two states. The 500k you are seeing was 4 years ago. List of U.S. states and territories by population - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Its more than a year since the 2013 estimate. I understand they are only estimates, but they might be pretty close.

Well, there is some truth to his statement. Nearly 70% of all people who move to Florida end up moving out within 5-10 years after moving there. But at the end of the day, it's still a net gain in population anyway.
