RI More Oppressive than Afghanistan?


This part of a New York Times article about the flood of people into Europe caught my eye:

A quarter of Afghans told a Gallup Poll that they want to leave, and more than 100,000 are expected to try to flee to Europe this year.

What’s surprising about that is a comparison to other recent poll results:

Rhode Island ranked at the bottom of yet another national poll.

A recently published Gallup Poll found 42 percent of residents said they would like to move to another state.

Sure, this speaks to the proximity of better options and the ease of movement within the United States, but it’s still another red flag.
