Moving to America?


"Nearly 150 million people -- or 4% of the world's adult population -- would move to the U.S. if they could. That figure is larger than the next four most popular destinations combined. If everyone who wanted to move to the U.S. had their way, the country's total population would increase by almost 50%."

That's the finding from Gallup. And where else do people want to move? Iraq? Iran? North Korea? Of course not. See the complete Gallup report HERE.

And the countries with the most people who do NOT want to move to America?

"...not all large countries have millions of people eager to move here. Two notable examples are Pakistan and Russia, and politics may be why people in these countries don't want to move to the U.S. Those countries dislike U.S. leadership more than almost every other country in the world. On the other hand, Russians may just really like living in Russia -- they are among the least likely people in the world to want to move away from their country."

By the way..the folks at PEW find a greatly diminished opinion of America in the Trump Era:

According to a new Pew Research Center survey spanning 37 nations, a median of just 22% has confidence in Trump to do the right thing when it comes to international affairs. This stands in contrast to the final years of Barack Obama’s presidency, when a median of 64% expressed confidence in Trump’s predecessor to direct America’s role in the world.
