From The Department of Not Very Surprising
In a poll released Tuesday by the Public Policy Polling, California was the least popular state in the United States. Only 27 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the Golden State compared to the 44 percent who view it unfavorably.
The gap of 17 points puts California far behind Illinois (19 favorable, 29 not) and New Jersey (25 favorable, 32 not) as the least liked state in America.
Worse than New Jersey? That hurts.
And further from the Not Very Shocking Files:
Democrats love California; Republicans can’t stand it. The opposite is true of Texas.
Yeah, yeah. Sometimes I still can’t believe I live here either. Though I have to say that most people’s opinions of California are formed by what they see on TV, and most notably what they see on TV related to Los Angeles.
There’s an awful lot going on here you don’t see on reality TV. Just sayin’
