    Turning red:

    IA (6)
    OH (17)
    WI? (10)
    Inevitably PA? (19)

    Turning blue:

    AZ (11)
    GA (16)
    NC? (16)
    Inevitably... TX? (40)

    Well, duh - the smart ones understandably leave the Idiots Out Wandering Around behind.

    I'm not actually being a jerk; I wonder. University of Iowa was once pretty good for English and Writing, I think.

    I know a Hawaiian guy who went to ISU for college and partied non-stop for 4 years, during which he realized he was Super Duper Gay, had many, many, many opportunities with the local Fundy lads, and loved it. He still goes back every year.
    Quite a few Chicagoland folks end up in Iowa City.

    I would actively discourage any self-respecting young woman from enrolling at schools in states that have severe abortion restrictions like the 6-week bills.

    Grinnell is one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country. Quite a few people from outside Iowa attend Grinnell.

    Yeah most of the smart people got out if they could. I used to go there a lot when my grandparents lived there and it is just not the same. And it won't change much going forward because there is zero incentive to move there unless you are going to one of the colleges.

    Did everyone with a working cerebral cortex leave like the Dakotas?
    Decades of anti-labor efforts, more college grads, and thus brain drain to Chicago, MSP, and the coasts.

    Speaking of Iowa, I love this! Please, keep them fighting each other in a state that offers little electoral relevancy these days.

    In 2-3 years, I would love to see the trendline of foreign & out-of-state university enrollment numbers for each state that enacts a 6-week abortion bill.

    Yeah he's absolutely lying. Even the most progressive states on abortion limit it - without medical necessity anyway.- to 24 weeks or thereabouts. There are no "because I don't want the baby" 32+ week abortions.

    That's what I figured. Bad journalism on the interviewers part.
