Everyone hates Utah

Kevin Drum has a crazy chart looking at the favorability ratings of each state:

Coincidentally, Colorado (where I lived from age nine) is the fifth-most popular state, while Utah (where I was born and lived until age nine) is the fifth-least popular state. This is nuts, in my view. Sure, Utah has more than its fair share of crazies, but that's more than balanced out by its superior scenery and generally high-quality governance.


  1. Ditto, Ryan, for New Jersey. Except that I have lived here forever, even since conception, and good governance- not so much. But I love it. B

  2. So what's your favorite part of Jersey? Best scenery?
