S.Carolina could change everything with this movement.

The state of S.Carolina has 5.2 million people.
https://www.populationu.com/us/south-carolina-population
Imagine if a large portion of Democrats from that state decided to move to neighboring states.
Say 1 million moved to either N.Carolina, Georgia, or Florida. 333,000 to each state.
That could change all 3 states from purple to blue with those electoral college votes, 2 US Senators, several more Congress members, Governors, state House, etc. all changing from Republicans to Democrats.
Yes, it makes SCarolina a deeper shade of red. But, thatís a great trade off.

NCarolina, Georgia, and Florida Democrats could court SCarolinians to move to their states with offers to help with their relocation efforts and in finding jobs.
I know this sounds a little crazy. But, what if it worked?

1. That has less chance than all the libertarians moving to New Hampshire

9. Libertarians are just Republicans that want to smoke legal dope.

12. That was a bigger motivation that most South Carolinians have to move - still didn't work

4. Do you know a million people who want to pull up stakes and move to another state?

You'd have to engineer a dust bowl in South Carolina. That's hard to do.

Plus, you'd have to make the dust bowl at night so no one knew it was you.

10. You're going to need one of those black burgler-guy masks that cover only the eyes.

And a lot of full vacuum bags.

5. 1 million out of 5.2 million need to move?

That's a really big ask.

11. I'd settle for 200k to each state to start with. 600k total.

14. Why should people uproot themselves?

 

And I don't know many people willing to engage in a modern day Great Migration - leaving their homes, families, jobs, communities - in order to change the political demographics of any area. Would you be willing to do it?

16. Your OP wasn't about moving for better jobs

 

In fact, you're expecting folks to help them find jobs. The point is to get them to move in order to change the political demographics - and hoping that other people will help them find jobs in order to do that .

It's easy to suggest that other people uproot themselves to achieve the political ends you may want. But I doubt many people would be willing to do that, for good reason.
