I did not find the Midwesterners in Scottsdale to be nice. They flaunt their wealth in such a way that Californians don't do within their rich enclaves. Sorry, poster. I'm born, raised, on the west coast. You can't make me love you, says Bonnie Raitt.
Well, I can start right off the bat and say your census figures are absolutely inaccurate. California sends more transplants to AZ than any other state, and its ultra apparent. You cannot literally go 2 minutes on the road w/o seeing a CA plate. CA is first, IL second, NY 3rd, TX 4th. Illinois has sent 4% of its 12 million population to AZ. CA has sent 9% of its 33 million population to AZ. Do the numbers.

Californians are easy to spot.

They drive on surface streets as if they were freeways. They drive on freeways as if they were on a NASCAR track. They rarely slow down for Arizona's octogonal "stop signs". I assume that they have none over there. Arizonans are "zonies", meaning that they must be fornies?

Well all the above is true except the stop sign part for me. Good analysis

While I certainly agree with the gist of your post, I don't think that we can call it as "9% of CA's 33 million population has moved to AZ". It is more like "9% of AZ population has come from CA", and so on. Those are heavily populated states and even their single digit chunks moving here would have resulted in AZ population much more than what it is today.

Most people in AZ are either native to AZ or from back east. Yeah, I'd agree w/ you that maybe 9% of AZ population is from the west coast. Not that much. My point is that in CA, our rich areas don't flaunt their wealth, like the Midwesterners do in Scottsdale, and parts of Phoenix. Places like Westlake and Thousand Oaks, Calabasas, people are rich but don't flaunt their wealth.

California has entire television shows dedicated to residents flaunting wealth.

I'm surprised Colorado didn't make the list. I've seen a ton of CO plates recently up here in Prescott Valley, and I was a former who moved here in June 2016. There's a few Wyoming plates also, which is odd.
