Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “People more likely to move to states that reflect political beliefs: Poll”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Both Democrats and Republicans are more likely to move to states that reflect their political views, indicating that self-segregation along ideological lines may increase parties' political advantages in former swing states over the coming years.

More than a quarter of people in the United States, 30%, have considered moving out of state in the past six months, citing racial equality, lower taxes, LGBT protections, and more as reasons for moving, according to a new poll from Ipsos/Axios. Those considering a move are more likely to relocate to states where their preferred political parties are in power, the poll found.

More than half of Democrats, 55%, said they would consider moving to a state that better reflects their political values, and just slightly below 58% of Republicans said the same, according to the poll.

Forty-eight percent of Democrats said they are more likely to move to a blue state than a red state (25%) or a swing state (27%), while 51% of Republicans are more likely to move to a red state than a blue state (20%) or a swing state (28%), the poll found.

Overall, 38% of people who said they are considering a move would go to a red state, compared to 34% who would move to a blue state and 28% to a swing state.
