Hawaii, Montana, and Maine: States where residents don’t want to leave


In a 50-state Gallup poll, Hawaii, Montana, and Maine had the lowest number of residents thinking about moving to another state, just 23 percent.

That is compared to the 50 percent of residents in Illinois that want to relocate.

The question Gallup asked to respondents, “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?”

On average, a third of those polled wanted to move to another state.

Gallup also asked residents what was the likelihood of them moving in the coming year.

The state with the highest percentage that were likely to move this year was Nevada at 20 percent. Hawaii had 12 percent of respondents stating here were likely to move.
