More Americans under President Trump would like to permanently leave the U.S. than under Presidents Obama and Bush.

Under President Donald Trump, a record number of Americans would prefer to make their exit than stay in the United States, according to a Gallup poll released on Friday.

The Washington Examiner reported that 16 percent of Americans would permanently leave the country if they could now that Trump is in the Oval Office, compared to 10 percent under former President Barack Obama and 11 percent under President George W. Bush.

That number only grows when looking at the poll results for women and young people:

The percentage of women who want to leave during the first two years of the Trump presidency has surged since Obama was in office. Twenty percent of women said they’d like to live elsewhere now that President Trump is in office, compared with 10 percent under Obama and 11 percent during the Bush presidency.

Those numbers were lower for men, with 10 percent wanting to leave under both Bush and Obama, compared with 13 percent under Trump.

The number of Americans under the age of 30 wanting to leave the country grew to 30 percent during the Trump presidency. Eighteen percent expressed the desire to move while Obama was president, and 24 percent did during Bush’s tenure in the White House.
