Red State Blues

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.)

3 barks and woofs on “Red State Blues

  1. Not just unhappy. Clinically depressed, and committed to a negative reinforcement loop: they don’t like things not going their way, elect government that ensures things keep not going their way, dislike that even more and find worse candidates next time around because the last batch didn’t do a bad enough job. Take a look at the upcoming Senate race in GA: Chambliss is suddenly – somehow – too “librul” for them, and the other contenders are vying for the position most rightward of Paul Broun (including, apparently, Broun himself).

  2. What’s the matter with Kansas? And other states. Voting against your own best interests…now THERE”S a good idea! /snark
