National Journal investigates the impact of domestic migration on American politics. The story reveals that Americans are choosing places that appeal to their cultural preferences, according to census data. Migrants are forming distinctive political entities, especially in the fast growing parts of the country like the Deep South, Rocky Mountain West and Pacific Northwest, the Journal reports. Surveys have shown that natives often denigrate migrants, but in fact newcomers' values are close to those of long-time residents. The article sheds light on the so-called "white flight," a trend that describes the inclination of many whites to leave high-immigration metropolises in search of white suburbia.
