Living in Las Vegas appeals more to men than women. Affluent adults are twice as likely as poorer folks to want to live in Boston. Young people like big cities such as New York and Los Angeles. More Americans would rather live in a place with more McDonald's than one with more Starbucks.

There are some more fundamental differences between men and women," says Rich Morin, senior editor of the Pew Research Center survey. "Different cities seem to appeal to different partisan ideological groups. People who are drawn to cities are typically younger people."

The way some communities are collapsing, it's not just paradolia. Some places really aren't desirable to live in.

I guess that I'm one of the 52% of us that's happy where we are.

I couldn't imagine living anywhere other than "Almost Heaven" West Virginia.

Big cities are nice places to visit, but after awhile ... all that concrete everywhere begins to creep me out.

I'm moving from CA to TX in May.

California's spun out of control.
