Map: Who Wants to Move Out of State Right Now?

If you live in Oregon, Maine, New Hampshire, Montana, Hawaii, or (naturally) Texas, it's not likely that you want to move out of state. But if you live in Illinois, Maryland, or Connecticut, there's a good chance that you're trying to escape.

From June to December of last year, Gallup asked at least 600 people in each state, "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?"

After compiling responses, Gallup created the map and charts that you see above. The dark green areas indicate a more intense desire to relocate out of state. Fully 50% of respondents in Illinois wanted out.
