A new Gallup poll asked people if their state is the BEST place to live in the U.S. . . . and it showed us A LOT about which states are killing it in terms of state pride.

 You might be able to guess this . . . Texas had the most state pride.  28% of people in Texas say it's the best state to live in.

 The rest of the top 10 states are Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, Colorado, Utah, Vermont, and Washington.

Now on the other end, the state where the most people say it's the WORST possible place to live is . . . Illinois.  One out of every FOUR people in Illinois said it was the worst state in the country.


The rest of the 10 states with the least pride are Rhode Island, Connecticut, Mississippi, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Maryland, and New Mexico.
