No they're not. And certainly not in "the future".

North Dakota has seen a bigger increase in $ and in-migration than arguably any other state in the Union over the last decade.

Well it's not like they were starting with much of a population to add to. It is purely a boom/bust cycle tied completely to the oil and gas industry. They are booming, relatively, right now.

At first I thought that Tarheel was joking when he listed all the states (except for the Dakotas ) but the more I think of it the politics of DC, from BOTH parties, really is damaging this country. So he is very right.

But to answer the OPs question, the states I worry the most about in the long term are the "tax em to they leave and move away" states. Mainly some states in the Northeast, the Great Lakes and out in California. These states all have good qualities but it seems more and more people are asking if the high cost of living is worth it anymore.

New York isn't doing too too bad. Downstate is doing pretty well while parts of Upstate are not.

You are right, I seen somewhere online that West Virginia and New Mexico were the 2 states showing the biggest loss in population for last year.

Really the only thing that attracts people to NM is the weather and the scenery, other than that it's not an ideal place to do business or raise a family. It's one of the poorest states in the country, can't attract jobs, one of the worst in education and is isolated. It's basically WV or MS of the West.

I know alot of it is the economy but I always wonder if some peoples optimism and pessimism have alot to do with weather . I never sense in the sunbelt states, at least in the bigger cities (North Carolina,Arizona,Florida) much pessimism.
