California’s Population Falls for First Time in History

AP 7 May 2021

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s population has declined for the first time in its history.

State officials announced Friday that the nation’s most populous state lost 182,083 people in 2020. California’s population is now just under 39.5 million. It had shown only very small annual increases for the last several years.

Last week, the U.S. Census Bureau announced the state would lose a congressional seat for the first time because it grew more slowly than other states during the past decade.

State officials blamed the loss on a declining birth rate, reductions in immigration, and an increase in deaths because of the coronavirus, which killed 51,000 people in 2020.

The state Department of Finance says it expects California to add population next year.

California has seen more people leave than move in from other states for much of the last three decades. However, that had been more than offset by immigration and births.

The state’s population has become a political issue this year in light of the effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom, with Republicans blaming high taxes and the governor’s policies for people fleeing the state.

I bet the Pop actually increased if they could count all the Illegals
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.

And there's a good chance that the majority of those who left (or who are working on leaving) lean conservative and provided significant wealth to the state.

As these people leave the burden on those remaining is only going to increase.

California is in a death spiral and they don't even recognize it. In fact the leftist are celebrating the departure of the "undesirables". Complete fools.

I wonder how many House seats CA would lose if the Census apportionment was based on citizens only, as it should be.

Rodents still have to explain why people who aren't legally in the country should have Congressional representation.   Certainly the Founders of the Constitution entertained no such treasonous idea.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

they probably counted them twice.   They vote more than once, don't they?

Trump administration successfully sued to keep them off the census, or at least differentiated from citizens. Otherwise you no doubt be correct.
