Worst & best states to live in, according to residents

In June-December 2013, Gallup conducted a poll of residents of America’s 50 states, asking them to rank if their state is the “worst possible to live in.
A whopping 25% or 1 out of 4 residents of Illinois rated the state as worst. Illinois, of course, is where the POS began his political career of destroying America.
Top 3 worst states are:

  1. Illinois (14.5% Black)
  2. Connecticut (10.1% Black)
  3. Rhode Island (5.7% Black)

Note that the top 3 worst states are all blue (Democrat) states in the 2012 presidential election who voted for the POS.
Top 3 best states are:

  1. Montana (0.4% Black)
  2. Alaska (3.3% Black)
  3. Utah (0.9% Black)

Note that the top 3 best states are all red (Republican) states in the 2012 presidential election who voted for Mitt Romney.
Acting on a hunch, I added the red state vs. blue state classification, as well as the percentage of Blacks.
Here are the full lists of worst and best states:

The really sad part is they will still be blue in the next election. Don’t want to give up those free perks.

That was a great post. Shocking that Oregon came in 11th as being a good place to live.

California’s grade is way too high. California is a Gigantic Left Wing Freak Show!

I live in NorCal. Our currently drought-stricken state would come out better in the ratings if our goobermint wasn’t so bloody corrupt.
It’s been that way for a long time, and it’s not just a Democrat vs Republican issue. However no developed, Western goobermint entity — with the possible exception of Greece — can top Chicago in the corruption department.
My WAG (wild-assed guess) about Kalifornia is that we have a lot of immigrants who, coming from corrupt countries, have a higher tolerance for corruption than multi-generational, armed-to-the-teeth, in-your-face Americans.

I live in Illinois and I totally agree with this assessment.
