According to a recent analysis of Census Bureau data, there has been a significant migration of people out of counties won by President Joe Biden in the 2020 election and into those won by former President Donald Trump.
This movement appears to be happening naturally, without any orchestrated effort towards the “national divorce” advocated by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the Washington Examiner reported.
According to a recent analysis of Census Bureau data by Issues and Insights, since the 2020 election, almost 2.6 million individuals have relocated from counties that voted for President Joe Biden to those that voted for former President Donald Trump.
The analysis further highlights that more than 61% of the counties that supported Biden experienced a decline in population, while 65% of the counties that supported Trump saw a population increase.
While Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has proposed the idea of a red-blue “divorce” as a solution to curb political tensions, she has clarified that she does not support a civil war and believes in the continued importance of a national government and military.
Greene stated, “Whether we force a national divorce by legal means or not, the national divorce is already happening because conservative Americans will no longer tolerate the abuse, harassment, and hate by the Left.”
Issues and Insights noted that its analysis was an in-depth exploration of the census data that demonstrate red states’ population growth.
