Reliably, on many conservative blogs, you can find articles about how much California sucks.

The state with the 8th highest GDP per capita, which is the 25th best state for business and 31st best state to live in just really sucks. And, of course that is because it has Democratic politicians in office!

There’s about 13,000 articles about California at HotAir.com, but what’s funny about this one is that their narrative of GOP dominance in neighboring states just got crushed this week:

And where do these departing economic refugees go? To Arizona and Nevada, lower-tax places that have had — oh, look — Republican governments. And also Texas, another place stuck with GOP officeholders. California has exported more than 400,000 folks there this century.

“[Democrat] Sinema widens lead over McSally in Arizona Senate race”
“Democrats pick up Senate seat in Nevada with Rosen win”
“Longtime Texas Rep. [Republican] Pete Sessions loses to ex-NFL player”
“How the race between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke became the closest in Texas in 40 years”

Liz Mair has more to say at The Daily Beast: “Don’t Look Now, but the Mountain West Is Turning Blue”

And I will add that HotAir conspicuously left Colorado off its list of states that Californians are “fleeing” to; it is really one of the biggest sources and much higher on the quality of life lists than Arizona, Nevada or California.
