Poll Shows Half of Illinois’ Residents Would Leave

Half of Illinois residents would move out of the state if they could, and a new poll finds the job climate and the actual climate are the most popular reasons.  

A new Gallup poll finds a higher percentage of Illinoisans, 50-percent, would relocate than residents of any other state.

The poll of six-hundred people shows 26-percent would move for work or business reasons, while 17-percent cited weather and 15-percent said "quality of life."  

Nineteen percent of those polled in Illinois say they plan to move in the next 12-months, more than any other state but Nevada.
