Californians Considering Leaving the State Despite What It Has To Offer


California, with its unmatched beauty and attractions, attracts people from around the globe and would attract them enough to settle within it, calling it home. 70% of the total population of the state report that they are more than satisfied with settling in. Business and employment opportunities are rampant within the state. California also allows for an enjoyable lifestyle for many, making people stay. However, many are still considering leaving the state despite the opportunities for leisure and employment it offers since they are anxious about the state’s future and if they could keep up with the bills in the long run.

A poll conducted by local non-profit organizations indicates that people are mostly happy with the state and what it has to offer but what concerns them is the state’s economy and where it is headed. This makes them want to leave the state. Dan Schnur, a professor of political communication at UC Berkeley and UCS, stated that voters who are happy with the socio-cultural side of the state but are worried about its economy give out mixed signals toward government candidates.
