The partial government shutdown is being fought over a wall to keep people out of the U.S. But based on a stat from a recent poll, we might want to worry more about people wanting to leave.
Why it matters: Moving isn't typically a political decision, but the share of Americans wanting to emigrate remained at 10% through the Bush and Obama years, then jumped to 16% under Trump, according to a Gallup poll. Close to a quarter of Americans who disapprove of Trump said they want to move, compared to 7% of those who approve. A startling 40% of women under the age of 30 want to leave.
