1 In 4 College Applicants Rule Out Entire States For Political Reasons

A new survey found that 1 in 4 applicants decided against applying to a college this year solely because of the politics in its state.
The survey found that 31 percent of liberal applicants struck colleges from their lists for political reasons — especially abortion rights. The most-rejected states were Alabama, Texas, Louisiana and Florida.
Similarly, 28 percent of conservative applicants ruled out states on political grounds — namely California and New York. Conservatives rejected states less for specific policies and more for fear of an overarching, oppressive liberalism, on campus and off.
