It is hard to imagine that anyone would hate on the state of Kansas. According to one survey, that is just the case.
This is for sure a list that you do not want to be on. According to bestlifeonline.com, Kansas is the 10th most hated state in the nation. They also say that people from Missouri do not like us the most. How does this all add up. Here is an excerpt from the article:
“We started off by calculating the percentage of the population that has recently moved out of each state. While locals don’t give reviews of their hometowns like they would a restaurant on Yelp, they do tend to vote with their feet, so we compared the population increase or decrease in each stateto the national average of 0.6 percent, according to theU.S. Census Bureau. Next, we analyzed a Gallup poll of which citizens felt the most pride in their home states—defined as the percentage of people who agreed with the statement that their state is “the best or one of the best possible states to live.” The states with the least pride ranked higher in our Hatred Index. Finally, we looked at the findings of illustrator and amateur researcher Matt Shirley, who polled his 320,000 Instagram followers from across the country in 2020 to discover which state they hate the most. We then factored in the population of the states that hated on each state to measure the volume of hostility hurled in every state’s direction. (Some states, Shirley found, had no states that hate them.) These results were compiled into an algorithm that produced the final score of our Hatred Index, wherein the higher the number, the more hated that state is.”
So, Kansas is #10. Here is the list of the other 9 states:
#9 – Alabama
#8 – Indiana
#7 – Kenucky
#6 – Michigan
#5 – Florida
#4 – Oklahoma
#3 – California
#2 – Texas
#1 – New Jersey
And what was the least hated state? That would be Idaho. Maybe because everyone loves French Fries?????
