Do you consider whether a state is predominately republican or democratic when planning to move?

Yes, because I feel like living under the constant rule of the other party would make me angry on a daily basis. I deal with enough of it here, and this is a purple state!

So would you move to state that is primarily democratic or republican?

Democratic.

And why's that? If you mind me asking?

I would feel as if my vote were wasted if I moved to a red state. I would be part of the permanent bitter political minority.

Oh so you're pretty politically active!

My parents are more politically active than most. They had dinner with the President during the last election season.

Wow, that's quite a way to get into politics. Do you plan in having a career in politics?

Maybe. I've been looking at good colleges for poli sci but I don't know if I want to spend my life in politics yet.

I've been considering the same thing, I'm going to college for biology but I was thinking of having a minor in political science, not sure I want to walk down the path of politics.

Not directly, but the taxes certainly makes a big difference and that's closely linked to the politics.

If I could get away from all this blasted pollen, I don't think it matter one way or the other.

I'm not planning to move, but if I do, I will definitely consider the political climate of the state for relocation. I'm a liberal through and through!

That's never occurred to me. I do think about other factors when I move, but not that specifically. And I've always moved for a particular reason (always family, friend, or education related) that would supersede political issues.

No. I'm independent so it doesn't make a difference to me.

If I move I will consider the political climate of the state. I prefer a liberal state.

And why would you pick a liberal state over a republican state?

MrLucchese If curious, ask.

No, I look at the cost of living, safety, and factors of that sort.
