Steve Harvey is now moving to Los Angeles permanently. Apparently going between Atlanta and Chicago did not work out very well (fatigue from traveling). Maybe he saw the writing on the wall?
Your comment makes no sense. It has nothing to do with Trump. If liberal Hollywood elites cared about avoiding red states they never would have left SoCal to begin with. It's not like Georgia being a deep red state suddenly snuck up on people, been that way for a while. These people, (Hollywood Filmmakers) only care about making money, and as much of it as they can. The Film Industry has seen ticket sales going down the last several years, they are fleeing Los Angeles because the Unions have made it almost impossible to make movies on the cheap. Even though I am against right to work states in general, it's undeniable how they appeal to Hollywood under the current economic climate.

Agreed good post. Hollywood elites are more socially liberal anyway than the Portland social justice warrior type of liberal.

Don't forget Costco. And the many huge branches of Silicon Valley companies like Google and Facebook.

The Puget Sound Region punches well above its weight in terms of economy, but there's no way Washington is in the top 5 states.

What's with the omission of Florida? Way ahead of Illinois in terms of GDP. Will probably overtake New York in our lifetime if you look compare the growth rates.
