Nothing to offer here. I had to read to find out what a halfback state is. Never heard the term in all my life. Learn something new every day.

Oh I know and I agree. I was just responding to NAH's post since he was talking about those states as well.

Truthfully, I had never heard of "halfback" states.

Halfback states will eventually become as "bad" as the places people left. Perhaps all the people leaving places like Florida will help Florida become better again while the states they went to get worse, and the cycle goes on...

BTW: I don't see PA and or WV as halfback states. As far as I know, they aren't exactly skyrocketing in population. I'd bet a large chunk of upstate PA is declining and WV is probably going nowhere, not up or down.

Nice picture, Waterlily! Can you now have signatures in your post?
Yes you can go into your profile only if you are a Mod and add a signature if you have one.

I really think the only states that would be halfback are NC and TN. I guess SC could be included.
The other states like Ohio,WV and Pa don't seem to be gaining population but who knows about the future?

I prefer Fullback states like Florida and California. I consider Ohio to be a Quarterback state and Rhode Island to be a Nickelback state, Delaware's definitely a Dimeback.

I think your already too late, NC in 2010 will be the 10th most populous State and SC, GA, TN are some of the fastest growing region with Northern migration such as NY and Southern Migration such as FL. Places out west such as AZ, NM, CO, WY, MT, ID, OR are also overwhelming Californicated.
