43% of California voters says they can't afford to live there

USA Today - [A] Quinnipiac University poll rreports that 43 percent of California voters said they can't afford to live there. That number was driven by younger voters: 61 percent of voters age 18 to 34 said they can't afford to live in California.

Surging housing prices in California led CALmatters to report that the state was the poorest in the country in 2017. The organization reported then that 20 percent of the state's population struggled to make ends meet.

Check out Massachusetts -- MIT's utility for determining the minimum after-tax income needed to live in various cities puts metro Boston on a par with metro NYC. The difference is just noise: 3.4% per annum for a single person.
