Come to think of it, the result of this poll should call into serious question the stereotypes about how politics relate to open-mindedness.

As for me, the biggest dealbreaker is a high natural disaster risk.

IMO, the 2016 presidential election was a referendum on human decency, and, for me, a dealbreaker is having to live among a critical mass of people who saw fit to ignore or accept how disgusting Trump is and vote for him anyway. That is in no way an endorsement of any other candidate in that election, nor a condemnation of Republicans generally.

You need a "too little snow" option.

Idk if it's because I'm from the DC area but politics is incredibly important to me - I have no desire to live in any of these right-wing Trump 2.0 places, honestly. Not saying that everywhere has to be as liberal as Massachusetts or California but I'm finding the older I get, politics does matter on where I decide to move to next.

Agreed. That's one of my favorite things about North Dakota. Plenty of snow.

"Too Hot"? That's pretty close.

I suppose that's the closest, so I voted for it. But I really don't mind really hot weather in the summer as long as you also get cold weather and snow in the winter.

Don't have the right jobs
Pay is too low
Too expensive
Other- Too much poverty
Not compatible with local/prevalent culture
High natural disaster risk
Isolated
Other- Food Desert

I think these are the most important ones, I voted for don't have the right jobs.

If a city doesn't diversify it's job market, or the job market that a city has becomes unfavorable, than the city will lose it's population & growth(for example, one of the reasons for the Rust Belt population decline)

If a city doesn't have the right jobs for your field, you either have to switch your field or relocate to a city with a more favorable job market for you.

I think that the economy is the most important reason to choose where to live, & is the deal breaker.
