What's the worst state in the Union?

    Obviously in America, we love all our states like one big happy family. However, in every family there is a drunken, stupid, obnoxious uncle that privately no one likes for different reasons. Which state fits that bill for you? Sort of curious what people think and what their criteria would be for choosing said state.

    Discuss, defend, offend.

    Alaska. Just completely out of step with the rest of the country.

    Alaska is just straight up beautiful in 1,000 different places though.

    There are places I wouldn't ever choose to live, mainly the Dakotas and other similarly cold places. But a state I hate?

    Illinois' roads suck. The drive through Kansas is a slog.

    If this were a poll, I'm sure California would be a top response.

    You know, I kind of thought of California, but now I'm thinking maybe my home state of Illinois.

    All the financial problems of California, none of the beaches. Corrupt state government. Southern part of the state shares anything that is wrong with the South. Chicago is a nothing-special city.

    I could go all day and not read a dumber answer. Such a beautiful place and kinda sad that you can't take the politics out of it.

    If anyone can elect this guy as their governor, they have my vote of no-confidence.

    There are great (and awful) things about every state.

    Nothing to do with politics. The scenery is beautiful. But everyone who has ever lived there that I've talked to says the people are just odd. The heavily out-of-whack male-to-female balance, the difficult travel, the obscenely high prices for common goods.
