TEXAS – This one hurts for the state of Texas.
Among the 10 most hated states in the United States, Texas comes in as the second “most hated”, according to an analysis from the Best Life lifestyle website.
New Jersey took first place and Texas was followed by California.
Best Life says its findings were gathered by calculating the percentages of the population who recently left each state, analyzing a Gallup poll in which citizens felt most proud of their home country, and the findings of researcher Matt Shirley , who took a poll of her 320,000 Instagram followers on which state they hate most.
The results of the scan provided a final score on the Best Life Hate Index, where the higher the number, the more hated the state is.
Alaska, California, New Mexico and Oklahoma are the states that hate Texas the most, according to BL’s findings.
For Texas, the numbers were as follows:
- Population change from the US average: 2 percent
- State pride: 68 percent
- States that hate it: Alaska, California, New Mexico, Oklahoma
