This is off-topic, but....
Half in Illinois and Connecticut Want to Move Elsewhere
I'm not sure you can draw any correlation between taxes and that survey. Also included on the list of states people most want to leave are low-tax states Nevada, Louisiana, and Mississippi. On the list of states people least want to leave is my own Minnesota, only 2% above the winner Montana. In addition to having winters as brutal as Montana, we have taxes as brutal as New York.

Anyway to keep it on topic, Florida polled that 31% would like to move and 67% would like to stay.
