Via 24/7 Wall Street:
According to a Gallup poll released today, the United States has shown almost no improvement in well-being in the past five years, increasing slightly from 2011 when Americans reported the most miserable scores since the survey began. The top and bottom states have also remained nearly the same. West Virginia, which received the lowest well-being score in 2012, has routinely been in the bottom two, and Hawaii ranked highest for the fourth year in a row.
The top ten unhappiest states in America all have one thing in common: they’re all hard-core Republican states.
It’s all Obama’s fault.
PS: Apparently I’m colorblind at 4:00 a.m. The blue states are the Democrats. So I have color-corrected the title from blue to red. (I’m blushing red from embarrassment.)
