Tiebout in effect

The latest (2008) Allied Moving Van company's migration pattern report was recently released. It has a very interesting picture:

I think all of the net outbound states were all "blue" this past election. It would be interesting to know whether those who are more mobile are more right or left of center. Moreover, it would be interesting to know whether those who stay behind are more likely to be a) already left-of-center or b) more prone to becoming left-of-center. If there is a relationship between "staying behind" and being left-of-center, then net migration patterns might shift the median voter in the net outbound states. If so, then it is possible that net outbound states will become even more left-of-center than they were in the past.

This, in turn, would have interesting ramifications for those who are elected to the House and Senate from these states and what kind of state governments they might have in the future.
