DOES AMERICA LIKE CALIFORNIA PEOPLE

Does America like California people? There is a lot of talk about Californians leaving California to move to America. What is not covered is — how well are California people treated when they move to America.

Every state where Californians have moved to in larger numbers (blue arrowhead) — now talks trash about California routinely.

Nevada is the 1 exception. Sort of.

Why is that?
