AU and Dark Vader: This exchange with Jakester is a perfect example of how dishonest and what a troll he is.
"California is still the most populous state in the Union! "
Yes, it is. But your implication that it's not losing people is still wrong.

"The claim that California's population is declining is categorically false."
do yo know what "categorically" means? It means all categories (including the US census) confirm or deny the object of the argument.
So you are wrong on that account, too. The US census shows a net loss of California's population from 2010 to 2020.

But when confronted by the truth...
CALIFORNIA: 2020 Census
The Golden State's population was 39,538,223 in 2020, a 6.1% increase since 2010 but slower than its 10% gain in the previous decade.

The claim that California's population is declining is categorically false.
"California's population grew by 6.5% (or 2.4 million) from 2010 to 2020"
