Residents of Illinois and Connecticut are so unhappy with their states that half of residents say they would move if they could, a new poll has revealed.
One in three Americans wish they could pull up their roots and move to another state, according to a new Gallup poll.
More people are looking for greener pastures in states with dense population - specifically Illinois (home of Chicago) and the Northeast corridor between Boston and Washington, D.C. Residents said they're hoping to find better jobs, be closer to family, have a higher quality of life and pay lower taxes elsewhere.
Illinois had the highest portion of respondents saying they wanted to leave - 50percent, followed by Connecticut, Maryland, Nevada, Rhode Island and New Jersey.
