The following article, California’s Population Declined for the First Time as People Flee Failed Liberal State, was first published on Flag And Cross.
California lost citizens for the first time since becoming a state as people flee the wreck Democrats have made of the place, according to the latest Census numbers.
The state’s population fell by 182,000over the last census, according to the government report. This is the first time the state’s numbers have fallen since its founding in 1850.
California’s population has slowed at one point or another, granted, but this is the first time growth retreated.
Because of this fall in population, California will also realize a second dubious first. It will lose a Congressional seat for the first time ever.
Per the Associated Press:
In recent years, more people have left California for other states than have moved there, a trend Republicans say is a result of the state’s high taxes and progressive politics. The average sale price of a single-family home in California hit a record $758,990 in March, a 23.9% increase from a year ago.
“The numbers don’t lie. People are leaving our state because it’s not affordable to live here,” tweeted Kevin Faulconer, the former mayor of San Diego and one of the Republican candidates hoping to unseat Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in this year’s expected recall election.
Typically, the state’s Democrats are trying to push the lie that the state’s falling population is because of the coronavirus.
Yeah, sure, folks. Sure.
The AP continued:
The state’s four most populated cities — LA, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco — lost a combined 88,000 people in 2020. Meanwhile, major inland cities including Sacramento, Fresno and Bakersfield added population, evidence of people fleeing high-priced coastal cities for cheaper living.
Population estimates released last week by the U.S. Census Bureau showed paltry growth in California. But those numbers showed California’s population as of April 2020. The numbers the state released Friday reflect California’s population as of January 2021.
Other liberal states are also losing population — and consequently losing seats in Congress. Nearly all the states that lost seats in Congress were deep blue as people all across the country flee failing left-wing states.
