What’s Your State’s Suck-Factor?

If you live in Illinois or Connecticut, it’s pretty bad.

Gallup conducted a survey of the residents of all 50 U.S. states to measure the desire to move to a different state. The results, published yesterday, may or may not surprise you, but one thing’s certain. Mississippi is no longer the suckiest place to live in the whole country.  It might have been, for a while.  Back in the mid-90s, the Places Rated Almanac caught grief for stating right up front that Mississippi might, objectively, be the worst place to live, hands down.  Not anymore.

    Yep. Maryland.

    Thanks, gerrymandering and the I95 corridor, for ruining our otherwise lovely state!

    • I actually like Maryland. It’s just too bad its success has dragged it down into twilight territory like some other populous states (thinking of mainly Baltimore here) like Michigan, Virginia, NY, etc.

        The whole corridor stretching along I-95 from DC to Baltimore is the root of the problem. There’s maybe one congressional district that doesn’t touch this area (the one east of the Chesapeake, I think?). This means that this area, so much more populous and “urban” (And bluer than the ocean depths) overrides the entire rest of the state.

        It’s very vexing.

    Hawaii gets away from this poll because… well… its Hawaii. But, the way our uber-liberal-progs are running this state, Hawaii may not last long.
