Democrats are destroying the areas that they control.
And Florida’s governor has taken full advantage of that.
Ron DeSantis made a historic win that exposed the Democrats’ awful insanity.
When Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won a blowout win for election he powerfully declared that Florida is where wokeness goes to die.
“We have embraced freedom,” DeSantis declared to a raucous crowd. “We have maintained law and order. We have protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers, and we reject woke ideology.”
And it turns out this is what many Americans are searching for.
The Census Bureau found Friday that Florida was the fastest-growing state in the country over the last year, something that hasn’t happened since 1957.
“Florida’s population increased by 1.9% to 22,244,823 between 2021 and 2022, surpassing Idaho, the previous year’s fastest-growing state,” the Bureau said. “For the third most-populous state to also be the fastest growing is notable because it requires significant population gains.”
DeSantis campaign spokeswoman Christina Pushaw tweeted this week that Democrat-run states were continuing to make those unpopular choices. “Kids in Democrat-run districts like Philadelphia and Passaic, NJ are being force-masked in schools again. The politicians who make these cruel regulations are partying at maskless galas while forcing kids to cover their faces,” she wrote.
“We’ll probably see these politicians in Florida,” she added, referencing the fact that many prominent Democrats vacation in the state, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
On the other hand, the Census Bureau found that California lost more residents than any other state this year, with the state actually shrinking in population for the third year in a row.
The Bureau concluded that California’s 39,029,342 population lost 343,230 residents primarily due to residents deciding to flee to other states.
H.D. Palmer, deputy director for external affairs at the California Department of Finance, told The Sacramento Bee that California has lost residents to “domestic migration” for years.
“Some people — for reasons other than demographics and more politics — try to jump on some of the outmigration numbers,” Palmer said.
“If you talk to demographers, they’ll say that one of the factors is the cost of housing,” Palmer said. “And that’s continued to be a challenging issue for the state.”
But it isn’t just people who have left the state, businesses are starting to flee too according to a report from the Hoover Institution at Stanford University published in October.
“In the last three years, California lost eleven Fortune 1000 companies, whose exits negatively affect California’s economy today,” the report reads.
New York was second in terms of population loss with a net population loss of 299,557 people, and Illinois came in third with a net loss of 141,656, according to the Bureau.
