If you want to know which states are the most hated in the good ol’ U.S.A., you need look no further than Best Life Online. Using the following three criteria, they were able to create an algorithm that determined each state’s “hatred index.”
- Percentage of the population recently moving out-of-state and in.
- Gallop Poll data that showed the level of “state pride” in a given state.
- A survey of 320K-plus people asking which states they “hated” the most.
When these three metrics were examined, New Jersey, Texas and California came out on top – as the most hated. My native state of NJ?? Ahhhh! Here’s are the states that ended up being the most hated in the nation. CLICK HERE to see where your state lands.
