Poll: 1 in 5 Floridians Considering Moving

A new survey found that 20 percent of Floridians are seriously considering leaving the state. The Second Annual Sunshine State Survey also found that 43 percent feel that their quality of their life is declining. That number represents a 7 percent increase over last year.
