How would you feel if you had to move to the state that is the one you despise the most? That is statistically what's happening when it comes to the state that has the most residents moving to Missouri. They also happen to come from the biggest arch rivals the Show Me State has in America.

I got curious about what states people are coming to Missouri from and I found an interesting article from Stacker that's based on US census data and moving companies numbers.

With all those numbers crunched, here are the top 5 states they say have residents fleeing moving from that end up in Missouri.

5. Florida

4. California

3. Texas

2. Illinois

And the #1 state that residents are moving to Missouri from?

I find this hard to believe, but the article says the #1 state that Missouri is receiving new residents from is...KANSAS. Yes, JAYHAWKS.

Question: Have you ever been to a Missouri/Kansas basketball or football game? The bad blood runs deep. This was what happened during a Tiger/Jayhawk game over 60 years ago.

Many of those fighting Kansas people mad as hornets at Missourians are now among us. Can't we all just get along?

I find it interesting that states that seem to despise Missouri the most are the places where most people are coming from. Perhaps it's true that opposites really do attract.
