Half of people living in Illinois and Connecticut want to get the hell out - Vox
If I lived in Illinois or Connecticut I'd want to get the hell out too. In fact, if I lived anywhere east of the Mississippi River I'd want to get the hell out.

A lot of folks want to get the hell out of your fair state as well. Seems like a lot of folks want to get out of the state they're in, but according to the article, most do not up and leave.

The survey would have been if it had been broken down into race, age, education, income, and key political positions. It's really meaningless as presented.
