A recent Gallup poll shows the three states where people are most likely to leave, with almost half of residents in Illinois, Connecticut, and Maryland, saying that they would move out of state, if given the chance.
Montana, Hawaii, Maine, Oregon, New Hampshire, and Texas, are the states where less than a quarter of respondents wanted to leave, Uproxx notes.
Overall, 33 percent of residents polled in the Gallup survey said they would want to move to a different state.
Gallup polled about 600 people in each of the 50 states asking, “Regardless of whether you will move, if you had the opportunity, would you like to move to another state, or would you rather remain in your current state?"
