Trump Derangement Syndrome: Record number of Americans want to LEAVE now that POTUS has us on the right track

A new Gallup survey has found that a record number of Americans say they are ready to leave the country for places they think are better, like Canada.

The survey, published late last week, found that fully 16 percent of Americans polled want to leave the U.S. for good, which is similar to the number of Americans who said they wanted to bolt in 2017.

But what makes the current polling so much more significant is that how much they contrast sharply with the number of Americans who said they wanted to leave the country under Presidents George W. Bush (11 percent) and Barack Obama (10 percent).

Though Gallup did not ask the political affiliations of those who were surveyed, the polling firm did note that the desire to leave was strongest among women and younger Americans.

“During the first two years of the Trump administration, a record-high one in five U.S. women (20%) said they would like to move to another country permanently if they could,” reports Gallup. “This is twice the average for women during the Obama (10%) or Bush years (11%) and almost twice the level among men (13%) under Trump. Before the Trump years, there was no difference between men’s and women’s desires to move.

“The 30% of Americans younger than 30 who would like to move also represents a new high — and it is also the group in which the gender gap is the largest,” Gallup continued. “Forty percent of women younger than 30 said they would like to move, compared with 20% of men in this age group. These gender gaps narrow with age and eventually disappear after age 50.”

Notes The Daily Wire in assessing the survey results:

Obviously, none of this has to do with any of President Trump’s policies, because contrary to the fantastical ruminations of feminists, women do not live in “The Handmaid’s Tail” under this current administration. So if women are so triggered by President Trump that they want to leave, it seemingly has everything to do with his character and rhetoric.

“After years of remaining flat, the number of Americans — particularly young women — who desire to leave the U.S. permanently is on the rise,” Gallup said. “This increase is concerning, but none of this suggests that the U.S. is going to suddenly see a mass migration in which it could lose as many as 40 percent of its young women.

“However, the ‘Trump effect’ on Americans’ desire to migrate is a new manifestation of the increasing political polarization in the U.S. Before Trump took office, Americans’ approval or disapproval of the president was not a push factor in their desire to migrate,” Gallup added, noting most who want to leave want to emigrate to our northern neighbor.

That migration has already begun, actually. In August, Canada’s Global News reported that the country had seen “a modest uptick” in the number of Americans migranting there:

Over 2017 and the first quarter of 2018, 1,055 more Americans were granted permanent residency than the average number during the Obama administration. Student visas granted to U.S. citizens increased by 1.012 in 2017, compared to the average number over the eight years before that.




The news site added that could be due to changes in Canadian immigration requirements, such as English proficiency “being worth more points than it used to be.”

That said, the reason why the number of Americans who want to leave is so high can’t be due to anything other than disdain for the president. Economically speaking, America is growing in leaps and bounds, mostly due to POTUS Trump’s growth policies and the Republican tax cut, according to several economists.

Also, the U.S. military is being rebuilt under this president and American leadership is being reasserted around the world after it receded during the Obama administration.

New trade deals with our neighbors, our allies, and China, coupled with additional economic incentives and manufacturing growth, have led to historic gains in the stock market.

All things considered, the United States, in many respects, is doing better in 2019 than it has in decades, meaning the decision to want to leave the country is very obviously a political one.

    Please go, don’t look back!

  4. For all those who want to leave. Please form a list and put your name down. There are millions of us who will do everything in our power to see that you no longer have the ability to take advantage of the freedoms the rest of us enjoy. We will hold you to your threat.

  5. Don’t let the door hit you in the *** on your way out.

    Big difference in answering a poll and putting YOUR money where YOUR mouth is! If that many are so brainwashed by the libermedia and academia then we would be MUCH better off without them! I absolutely DESPISED the POS oblama, but would NEVER leave the best Country on the face of the earth! If push came to shove and the only way to regain our Nation from the corrupt forces that have ALMOST succeeded in it’s destruction was to join an armed resistance then me and my few weapons and ammo would have certainly joined the cause. I am so THANKFUL for PRESIDENT TRUMP and pray for him every night that he remains safe and continues to expose the TRAITORS! This will not end well for the dems and TRAITORS!

  7. All talk… no action. Document with photo.:)

  8. Lots of Yap-Yap-Yap, but I don’s see any U-haul vans loading up and heading out (except the ones leaving California for Texas).
    Heck, even lying Babs Streisand and Alec Baldwin are still here, after PROMISING to leave the USA if Donald Trump were to be elected President.

  9. Hell, I’ll help them pack…Bubbbbbbyyyyye

    These are people who just don’t want to work. Yesterdays hippies if you will.

    To them I say: There are 195 different countries in the world. PICK ONE!

  11. Someone already used my Comment: “Don’t let the door hit your a$$ on the way out !” ( It’s worth repeating )

  12. I recommend those Trump-hating women move to the Middle East—or any Muslim nation—where they can experience first-hand how disrespected women are in Muslim-dominated countries. God bless President Trump for his love of America and respect for our Constitution and the Rule of Law. KAG!

  13. I have been in 18 other nations as an official representative of the United States. I have seen how other people live and how their governments operate. If these people want to leave, by all means, GO! Instead of working to make our country better, just GO. However, I promise you that you will not find anyplace else with the freedoms we enjoy here—they simply don’t exist—I know from experience. And to all the “celebrities” who have promised to leave, why don’t you GO, too, instead of lying about it. and not keeping your word. It’s all about publicity, isn’t it? Reality is far different from publicity, isn’t it?

    • Exactly. I correspond online from time to time with someone in Ukraine ( Kiev ) and that person is not even allowed to receive MAIL directly — not even A LETTER. Only those who were actually “born” in Kiev, apparently, are allowed to “Register” with the Government, and thus, be ALLOWED to receive mail — so any letters I send must be sent to that person’s relative ( a cousin ) who IS “Registered.”

      And Ukraine is one of the relatively-freer Eastern European nations ! So yeah, definitely, a$$holes, get the hell out of here, already, and go somewhere else . . . I’m sure you’ll JUST LOVE IT there !

  14. The obvious reason that the number of young people is so high is that they have been taught since kindergarten that the US, and especially Republicans are evil. I would prefer that these teachers move to another country and let the kids grow up with truth.

  15. I say get the heck out! The country will be so much better off without you and your lack of thought processing ability. And be sure to take your children with you. We don’t want them running around loose in our wonderful country with the most honest president it has EVER had. Too bad you’re too stupid to realize that, but you are, so adios. I’ve heard it’s quite nice in Venezuela these days if Canada doesn’t want your sorry a$$.

  16. Hope to hell they never come back, but here’s the thing. They just won’t leave. They never do and when they do leave they come back soon enough with their tails between their legs.

    • Yeah, except they STILL never admit that their tails are stuck firmly between their legs — they CONTINUE to pretend that they’re returning for ANY OTHER reason, than that they were WRONG — it’s just not in their DNA, to EVER admit that they are wrong, to EVER display humility, and to EVER simply TELL THE TRUTH. There’s just no hope, no remedy, for WHO THEY ARE.
