Spectator world noted: “An incredible 46 million people moved to a new ZIP code over the year to February 2022, the highest annual total since Equifax, a credit agency, began tracking moves in 2010.”
Most of those moves involved people moving out of blue areas and into red areas. Republican-led states made the top of the list as final destinations, which included Florida, North Carolina, and Texas.
In contrast, New York, California, and Illinois were among the biggest losers of residents over the same time period.

The trend is expected to continue, especially as Democrats fail to get a grip on the inflation crisis that is making everything more expensive by the day.
