On that subject, it is a fact that many Mississippians were NOT born elsewhere. So given the fact that Mississippi used to be a Democratic stronghold, a lot of multi-generational Mississippians are Democrat to this day. About half my extended family falls into that category.

If you identify as a liberal, why not move to a liberal state? Honest question. And when you start with "But the cost of living... the crime rate... the taxes... the laws..." you really ought to start re-evaluating your beliefs, and not decide that "It'll work better this time!"
The thing is that the people who move from here ( Ca) to where you are , are usually our whining, griping, unhappy with life in general conserves . Yeah . Most liberal people would not willingly move from here to Miss . I would not . None I know would . This has been discussed many times .

Ignorance and intolerance of liberals has been displayed many times. Most people get their "information" from media and Hollywood, so the fact that they are ignorant of the realities in Mississippi is not really very surprising.


Have you actually known groups of people who moved from California to Mississippi? (Of course you have; that's why you can speak of who "usually" moves)

Because Mississippi is fascinating. Every chance I get I go to Natchez, MS. Until just recently the Mayor of Natchez was an openly Gay African American who won with 92% of the vote. His name is Darryl Grennell and he is a Democrat. The new Mayor of Natchez is Dan Gibson and is also a Democrat.

I live in Minnesota, and my husband is in the National Guard. We were both horrified by the murder of George Floyd AND the burning and rioting in the Twin Cities. But the rioting was NOT encouraged by our democratic leaders, at least not in Minnesota. Otherwise, why the hell would they activate the guard?


Also, don't compare riots over police brutality to riots over election results. Not the same plane of existence, not even close.

Unique thing about Californians moving to the Sipp is that a sizable migration of Sippians moved to Cali ( Whites & Blacks). One of the L.A mayors in the past was originally from Columbus, Sipp. These migration ties still maintain today despite the differences in political themes of said states.

Democrats don't equal liberal or progressive necessarily. And definitely not progressive. Those black democrats in Mississippi are conservative voters who go to church and look twice at gay people.

Annie's right. Democrat doesn't really mean liberal, because the Democrats have to cater to a lot of different factions.

A much more accurate measure of an area's "liberalism", "leftism", whatever you care to call it is to look at the precinct-by-precinct votes for either

(a) Green Party candidate for president (that party makes even Obama look like George W Bush)
(b) some ballot initiative about some inflammatory hot-button issue.

It's been a loooong time ago since I did this, but by my standard Mississippi's most "leftist" non-big-college areas are Jackson's Fondren-Belhaven area and Bay St. Louis. But even these areas are only centrist by national standards.
