( – According to a recent report from Newsweek, the U.S. Census Bureau data has shown that there has been population growth in states commonly viewed as Republican-leaning, while population has been declining in a number of more Democratic states. The report notes that those who are exiting Democratic states have often noted that they are doing so because of crime issues, politics, and high costs of living.

Newsweek, however, also reported that some experts stated that this phenomenon is part of a long-term trend and not something that started popping up recently due to any particular event. The change also reportedly means that some of the areas that were traditionally red are now turning into more centrist states.

According to the data released in December by the U.S. Census Bureau, the majority of Americans who are moving to different states are choosing to move to red states and start their futures. This has led to rapid population growth in many Republican states, while the population in Democratic states is significantly declining.

According to Newsweek, The Heartland Institute member Sam Karnick claimed that law and order was the key reason why many were leaving blue states for red states. In his interview, he pointed out that the opposite is happening with red states. He added that outside of law and order, taxation was also an important reason for the switch.

He further claimed that this pattern of movement was not as prevalent before 2020 and that the rise in crime in Democrat-controlled cities is one of the main reasons for the movement throughout the US.
