Which State Do Residents Want to GTFO? It Might Surprise You


A new Gallup poll has shown which state residents would like to cross state lines and where you’ll have to drag the inhabitants out by their hair. The results definitely surprised me, I have to say.

As a Connecticut native, I’ve always boasted about the geographical advantages of the state. Easy access to several major cities, Canada (if that’s your cup of tea), the ocean, the mountains and even Europe in less than 37 hours unlike anywhere farther inland. Apparently I’m the only one. Everyone here wants to leave good ole CT in the dust for greener pastures. People felt similarly about Illinois and Maryland, with over half of those residents wanting to bolt for a different state.

Furthermore, the states in which residents are most happy are Texas (I can hear the resounding roar of approval from PGP’s readership), Montana, Hawaii (duh) and Maine (a colder version of duh). To be fair, though, I’m pretty sure the residents of Montana didn’t know that other states existed, so that doesn’t count.

All I can say after viewing this data is: Texas Forever.
