Census data released today showed Michigan was the only state to lose population. Forty-nine states maintained or grew their population. Even worse, this decline marks Michigan’s first population decline in 100 years.

Population loss is directly attributable to local economic conditions. Whether pro Granholm or not, despite the economic cards she was dealt, it is significant this is the first population loss in a century. So, Michigan really is blown away.
