Missouri Stays Losing People

Bad news all around as both STL, KC Proper and rural areas rank lower for residents as flyover country faces growing stagnation. Checkit:

Census: 52 Missouri counties lost population in 2018

New census data shows that while Missouri's population rose slightly last year compared to 2017, more than 50 counties lost population. Data released Thursday shows estimated county populations as of July 1, 2018, compared to the previous year. Missouri overall saw its population rise 0.3% to an estimated 6,126,452.

City run by hardcore progressives that trash the police, allow riots, dismiss corruption...etc

Its the Detroit model being duplicated.

Cool story but it doesn't even mention Missouri.

Oh but here's one that does.

"Data released Thursday shows estimated county populations as of July 1, 2018, compared to the previous year. Missouri overall saw its population rise 0.3% to an estimated 6,126,452."

Therefore we can conclude from reputable sources that the statement "Missouri Stays Losing People" is not true.

^^^^Yes but that study also show Missouri losing overall as a whole to other states and cities. So while you think it's good it isn't really in the long run.

And the only correct comment was the one that noticed it was a bad link.

State population was up. It's about half of the counties that are declining.

Specifically, RURAL Counties were losing, with the boot heel having the largest losses.

The largest counties (where the cities are) - St. Louis, Jackson, Boone, Greene, Jefferson, and St. Charles were all up.

But by all means, don't let the stats get in the way of a good racist quip and political smear.

Rural counties may be steadily losing population, but that doesn't mean they're losing political influence.

Thanks to the million$ spent on the GOP's "Project Redmap" gerrymandering, 42% of Missouri's population already controlled 63% of it's Electoral Vote and State-wide Elective Offices, and as soon as the Republicans overturn Amendment One, it'll just get worse.

Make no mistake Missouri NEEDS non-partisan redistricting after every Census.
