You're talking about someone who believes in "the war on coal" and apparently thinks everything would be hunky dory in Appalachia if we'd just stop the progress of developing new cleaner, safer, cheaper sources of energy.......

Iowa. Not only do people not move away, but the idea of vacation for a lot of people is the state fair.

No, not MN. The Twin Cities metro area is a magnet for the states that surround it, particularly those states' substantial rural areas. Also, many large corporations have their headquarters or large facilities here, attracting people from all over. In the last few decades, many immigrants ave been locating here. All of this tends to dilute the native-born MN population living in the state.

Looking at the statistics makes me wonder if economics has a lot to do with the figures. North Carolina's 58% can be a lot of natives plus an almost equal amount of transplants. To do a real comparison one would have to check the population 10 years ago and today together with the percentage of natives. For instance if you are losing population that almost 80% could be that no one outside the state chose the state to live in.

Not true. Most people who leave California canít afford to go back.

That was the case in 1990, but Pennsylvania was the third-oldest state in 2000, and the sixth-oldest in 2010. At the rate things are going this decade, Pennsylvania will be either the 10th- or 11th-oldest in 2020, whichever position Connecticut isn't.

His parents are also immigrants from Asia, making him maybe a first generation American but he speaks as though his lineage comprises of an all American confederate lineage who's been serving to save the pure Southern Culture for decades.

I have lived in WA, ID, CA, WA, AK, OR, IL, back to ID, and back to WA. I never have been in a State with so many residents that have never left the State than Washington. I understand this is anecdotal, but I will vote for WA State here.
