In summer 2020, city dwellers were pinched by COVID lockdowns on one side and the rampant violence and crime unleashed by the rhetoric of Democratic politicians on the other. That combination led them to flee their cities in droves. The cities with the largest losses of residents were San Francisco and Manhattan. CNS News’s Terence P. Jeffrey reports:
New York County, which is the borough of Manhattan, and San Francisco County, which is the City of San Francisco, led the nation with the highest percentages of population decline from April 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021, according to data published today by the Census Bureau.
New York County had a population of 1,694,251 as of April 1, 2020. By July 1, 2021, it had dropped to 1,576,876—a decline of 6.9 percent.
San Francisco County had a population of 873,965 as of April 1, 2020. By July 1, 2021, it had dropped to 815,201—a decline of 6.7 percent.
When ranked by the actual net number of people by which their populations declined (as opposed to the percentage), the Top Three counties were Los Angeles County, California, which had a population decline of 184,465 from April 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021; New York County, which had a population decline of 117,375; and Cook County (which includes Chicago), which had a population decline of 102,395.
Action Line: Is it any surprise Americans can’t wait to escape the cities represented (in part) by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Jerry Nadler? With some of America’s harshest lockdowns, and rampant crime, the two cities epitomize an era for cities that is both anti-small business and anti-family. Americans want to raise their children and run their businesses in places that are safe and where they are left alone. That’s why they’re fleeing to my Super States.
