Record number of Americans want to leave US: Poll

A Gallup poll published on Friday revealed that since Trump took office in 2017, record numbers of Americans, especially younger women, want to get out of America. For years the desire to get out of the US was fixed at around one in ten Americans; however, in the past two years, the desire to leave the US permanently rose to 16% of Americans. In 2017 and 2018, the record number of Americans said they would like to permanently move to another country -- if they could. This rise in the desire to migrate permanently to another country is linked to a new manifestation referred to as the "Trump effect". The "Trump effect", approval/disapproval of Trump policies, is seen as a push factor in US citizens' desire to migrate. 40% of young US women opted for another country The Gallup poll shows that after years of remaining flat, the desire to leave the US permanently was high among young people, particularly young women, and lower income Americans. Thirty percent of Americans younger than 30 said they would like to move out of the US.  Forty percent of women younger than 30 said, ideally, if they had the opportunity, they would like to move to another country permanently, while 20% of American males younger than 30 said they would like to move out of the US. Media reports indicate that since Trump took office in 2017, the increasing political polarization in US society is forcing Americans to seek refuge in other countries.
