Gallup: Illinois tops the list of states whose residents think they live in the worst state possible

Conservative Intelligence Briefing –

Gallup has just released a poll of how each of the 50 states’ residents feel about their respective places to live. Their survey asked residents of all 50 states whether they thought their home state was “the best possible state to live in,” “one of the best possible,” or the “worst possible.”

Twenty-five percent of Illinoisans believe their state is the worst, making Illinois number one in thoroughly dissatisfied residents. Dishonorable Mention in this category goes to Rhode Island and Connecticut (tied in second place at 17 percent each), followed by Mississippi (15 percent), Louisiana (13 percent), New York (12 percent), New Jersey (10 percent), and Michigan (9 percent).
