    …The numbers are in: Red states are winning the post-COVID economic realignment, reports the Wall Street Journal, and blue states are losing.

    The overall share of US jobs in red stateshas jumped more than half a percentage point since February 2020. And red states as a group have not only won back all their pandemic job losses; they’ve added around 341,000 more — even as blue states still face an ugly deficit of 1.3 million jobs as of May.


    To understand why, look no further than at New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s pandemic policies — commercial shutdowns, mask and vaccine mandates and school closures — made it impossible to live and work in the Empire State. The same could be seen in California. Worse still, these policies continued long after data showed their utter ineffectiveness in stopping the spread of COVID. ..

    …It’s clear the red states are driving our national job numbers back to where they were before the pandemic. Their sensible, science-based policies attracted companies and workers, without compromising public health. Just imagine where the nation would be if the blue states had followed suit.

    ou see, this actually is an op-Ed article. It even says it was written by an editorial board. It was not written by the organizations news reporters nor do they quote an actual news maker on what he or she said. That being said, this opinion is so right on and accurate.

    This op Ed is so very accurate and right on. Red states are doing better than before the China virus was brought here. Democrat states are still way behind and their policies on other issues like energy, regulations, taxes, are only going to assure that they remain behind. The irony is that a lot of red areas in these blue states that their urban majority left for dead are now doing better than the rest of the state imitating red states more closely than their own.

    1. Washington.

    2. Utah.

    3. California.

    4. Mass.

    5. New Hampshire.


    Worst ...

    47. Oklahoma.

    48. Hawaii.

    49. Louisiana.

    50. Alaska.

    We rate this thread a fail.

    I'd have posted a link as you did, but some like to call other out rather than produce their source :)

    Unemployment clearly favors red states. New York, California, and Illinois have the highest, and they're the largest blue states which skews it even farther in the wrong direction for them.

    https://www.bls.gov/web/laus/laumstrk.htm

    And red states dominate the list of fastest growing economies. Granted, every state's GDP is actually decreasing because less is being produced. If, however, you're dumb enough to think that GDP growth due to price inflation is a good thing, you might be a democrat. Produce less, but make it more expensive. Clearly how you grow an economy.

    Red States are more fun.

    "Time for me to leave electoral politics..."

    Yeah. Get lost, Commie.

    "Last October, the New York Times reported that a city investigation revealed de Blasio misused public resources for his own political and personal benefit - and had not reimbursed the city for security costs related to his presidential campaign."

    He's only commie with our money.

    All I know is wealthy people from Blue states are flooding the housing market down here in FL. That’s not actually a good thing, but they have no sense of home values because where they come from it was all so inflated already. And now they’re screwing up the market here. Like roaches.

    That isn't new. It's been going on since the 1950's. Where do you think the term snowbirds came from?

    We all know about socialists when they run out of other people’s money to spend…you are right about red states or even counties in blue ones are more fun.

    Where I live we get some coming from the liberal suburbs of coastal cities but they are usually minority there conservatives who wanted a conservative place while staying in state for business or family reasons. We are far enough away from the urban coast that liberals don’t bother to try moving here to turn us purple. Our market is just a tad more expensive than the national average. There is lots of fun to be had here though

    People moving down here obviously isn’t new. But the inflated prices on homes due to it right now is crazy. Worse than the last rush.

    Because the policies and taxes/regulations happening in the blue states are worse now than ever before and people use to move to not from California which has really gone way over to the dark side

    But that's across the board. The housing shortage is a nationwide problem.

    What I wonder is when insurance companies will stop insuring Florida beachfront properties. That's coming down in the next few years, That will create a real nightmare.

    It’s still crazy. Floridians moving within FL understand the prices. But someone living in a $million 2BR condo coming here than paying inflated prices because they can get 5-6 BRs here, totally ****s up the market.
