Bottom line it appears to be population growth.

There are very few US states where that is not the case. I know I am not remembering perfectly, but I think only Maine, West Virginia, Michigan, and Rhode Island has experienced any estimated population drop in the last decade (although I believe they each tend to grow some years and shrink in others).

I believe Louisiana also lost people last decade, or for a good part of it, but that was sort of an unusual event with the hurricane.

At some point things changed in California to where it began registering negative domestic migration. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I can point to the exact year.

But immigration and immigrant birth rates are so high that the state is growing nonetheless.

Point is a "California Exodus" has already happened to a large extent. But they aren't moving to Indiana of all places. They are largely moving to the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, etc.

And if they love packin heat they move to Idaho/"God's Country"
