The Top Ten

1
Wyoming
The only people who live there are cowboys, and still not that many people!
Wyoming is one of the few states that could operate as its own country.
Wow and your a city boy. Get real.

2Iowa
7th highest property taxes in the country. High heating bills, low wages. the reason it's always on the best list by stupid city ratings is because there is no one but old people who live in Iowa. Real estate prices are way out of sink with the wages. Corporations and Insurance companies own the City council men. It's freezing from Oct to April. If you want to get in a car wreck from the snow and ice, or break something from a fall on ice, then move to Iowa. You'll be out of money in 1 year. I guarantee it.
Iowa sucks- tornado central
The entire state smells from all the farms kinda gross.

3New Jersey
New Jersey is actually one of the best states! Why you ask? 1) It is one of the richest states. 2) It has great public schools. 3) Beautiful, safe suburbs 4) Beautiful beaches 5) Being in the Greater New York City area it has great job potential and wonderful entertainment. There are also many beautiful lakes. In other words... New Jersey ROCKS!
New Jersey causes me hardcore anxiety and depression.
Every time it rains it floods a beach, stronger than the storm ya right there's a storm every other day and it just keeps on eating New Jersey up New Jersey SUCKS
[Newest]Jersey Shore... Atheists... bullies... Atheists... spoiled rotten brats... did I mention Atheists?

4California
This state should be number 1 on this list. I moved here for a job after the military and have regretted it since the first day. Seems like 1 in 4 of my neighbors actually has a job.

Can't go anywhere without the gangland/prison mentality that infects this state like a cancer. I hope I can get out of this toilet of a state and go anywhere else. Let the garbage that lives here and loves their welfare state fall into the ocean for all I care.
This needs to be up more. California is nothing but a bunch of fat, beach loving pricks, and too many natural disasters. I lived there for a couple of years, and it was awful. I never want to go back there again.
Nothing but a bunch of liberals, hippies, and anti-Americans, for the most part. Can't wait for the big one, honestly. Living in Arizona just puts me way too close to this place...
[Newest]I visited there once, and it's not all people say it is. It's fun and all, but Florida and Illinois are much better states.

5Rhode Island
Highest unemployment and everyone's miserable.
Rhode Island is tiny as hell.
Rhode island is so small that everyone says this place is full of bloney an

6Mississippi
I moved here from up north and this has been the best place I have ever lived... Friendly people... Low taxes... Small school systems and cost of living is great. Lots of entertainment and site seeing in a short drive in any direction. Glad I made Mississippi my home.
Mississippi does not need to change their flag. Yes, racism is bad, but why can't we just put the past behind us? The majority of racism happened in the 1800s, and we are in the 2000s now! Why can't we just forget about that, instead of everyone labeling you "racist" for something that is nothing of the sort?

Alpha101

Mississippi is the poorest state in the Country. And that is a fact.

7Nebraska
Should be higher on the list

8Nevada
UM THIS IS THE STATE I LIVE IN

9Alaska
Everyone just can not say anything bad about this beautiful state which doesn't deserve this kind of publicity Alaska is like a cold Hawaii it's beautiful and it's huge I mean two time Texas and amazing high mountains and lots of cool wildlife that will blow your mind so in my opinion Alaska has no business being on this list at all although it may be a little chilly it's nothing a real person can't handle at all so don't hate on my state as a total Alaskan girl I will live here my whole life and stay proud of that choice.

Hanpan

I would never put Alaska in the top ten worst states this should be number one state in America (not California)!

10Louisiana

The Contenders

11Arizona
Why isn't it in the top 10? Its sucks! Too many people there are racist.

12Illinois
Democrats have ruined Illinois and Chicago. High sales & property taxes, violent crimes, illegal immigrants, public schools are worse - children cannot read, unions are corrupt just like most of Illinois politicians (Dems & Republicans). Politician in Illinois only care about where there next buck is coming from for their pensions and health insurance, they could care less about the people. That's why America is on the decline, look where the president came from; another crooked democratic liberal that cares nothing about the US or hard working Americans not asking for handouts and welfare.
Illinois is just a big city and no wildlife

alaskangirl62

Whats wrong with illinios. Who doesn't love the smell of corruption and crime in the morning

13Texas
Texas is not what people think. It is not flat and dusty. It has some of the best cities in the US. A bunch of rednecks do not live here, if that's what people think! Laugh out loud people think they know everything. Texas is not only country it has many beautiful cities, like Dallas. Texas is one of the best states ever to live in because the weather is so nice and there are so many opportunities in this state.
Whats wrong with Texas? They supply more oil than most other states and have lots of pride
They think that they are Americas state but they are not, they are the worst state. To hot, flat and dusty. All the people are weird and rednecks and think they are the best.
[Newest]Texas people are annoying all that they talk about is Texas

14Maine

15Michigan
Really, I think Michigan gets a bad reputation from all of the bad stuff surrounding Detroit. But there are people that are trying to change this, and apart from that Michigan's really a beautiful and great state.
The only thing bad about this state is the crimes around Detroit
Michigan's really nice, but what makes it bad is Detroit and Flint.
[Newest]Michigan is should #1 because that's were poop goes

16Alabama
The southern tradition is rich in Alabama. Men still open doors for women, the senior citizens are treated with respect,
The children are taught manners like:Yes Sir & No Sir. We have mountains, The Gulf with gorgeous beaches, lots of wooded preserved forrestery, plenty of fresh rivers, lakes and streams. You can usually choose land to build on or apartments. Our interstates can connect you to anyplace you want to go. WE HAVE 2 GREAT FOOTBALL
TEAMS, AUBURN UNIVERSITY & THE UNIVERSITY OF Alabama! We love our sports & are great supporters of our teams.
Alabama is The worst state in the southern United States
Alabama sucks it is poor boring stupid people here I will not ever live here again

17North Carolina

18Delaware

19Idaho
I was eating some mashed potatoes while typing this comment.

20West Virginia
This whole place sucks. The people are nice but the poverty is unbearable and "education" is garbage. Just a disaster.

21Florida
Florida I'd say stink, stank, stunk. Florida stinks! And I'll show you,
Lots of storms,
Lots of people smoke,
Lots of its meager cities are shrinking Like...
Miami,
Tampa,
Oh, by the way there NFL football teams stink, most of all the jaguars SUCK
People are rude.
It's like living in another country except even in other countries people speak English.

22Massachusetts
This is one of the best states! This a very memorable place. Life is awesome here. What has it ever done to you?!

23New Hampshire
does anyone know this existed?


24Kentucky
More redneck than TN even though it's further north.

25South Carolina
! South Carolina SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 5 SOMETHING IS WRONG THERE IT COULD BE IN THE AIR, WATER, OR SOMETHING. CIVILIZATION, BURN IT DOWN!

26Pennsylvania
Crumbling roads, water main breaks every five minutes, terrible education system, debt, bridges falling into the water, highways collapsing, shootings, violence, tom corbett.

Bturlik

Narcotics are extremely popular in Pennsylvania. That's probably not a good thing.
Home of ketchup that's all I need to say

27New York
Laugh out loud someone put Tennessee in twice, it is/was 34 & 44 on this list
This is where Tennessee should be...
Tennessee IS AWESOME!

28Connecticut
I always liked living in Connecticut. People always complain that there isn't much to do there. Big deal, you're a few hours from NYC, Boston, and most everywhere else in New England is less than a day away.

29Wisconsin
WHAT?! Wisconsin does NOT EVEN belong on this list. What about the dells? That's a good place to go to for a vacation! Whoever putt this on the list should go to jail.
We're the worst?!? Fine we'll take our dairy, tourism, beautiful scenery, varied landscape and countries biggest water park and leave, and as a parting gift we well leave Minnesota our frigid weather. JK but seriously want did Wisconsin do?
We rock we let you come to our biggest water park in the world and this is your thanks

30Colorado
I'd rather move to California, New York Or Alaska.

31North Dakota

32Arkansas
Arkansas is the bomb. I mean Walmart was made here. Come on, how many times have you laughed at someone in Walmart. Every single time.

33Oregon
Great state should be 46
There are regular decent people in this state, but they let to many preppie hicks, white trash wannabee thugs. fake transplant gangsters, dirty bum hippies, tweakers, wierdos and hop heads mess it up. then those same ones will talk down on other states, like Oregon is without fault. the place in most part is like the outer limits or the twilight zone in its mentality. it would be good if they got rid of all the misfits but the weather would still be nasty and they have no pro football or baseball, not good, this should be in the top 5 for worst.

34Utah

35Oklahoma
How is this in the top twenty? There is literally nothing of any importance whatsoever in Oklahoma. The most interesting fact about it is that it has an oil well in the state capitol.
Storms, Broke, Bad education

36Vermont

37Kansas
There are lots of tornadoes in Kansas
Kansas needs to get out of the 1950's

38Washington

39Tennessee
I absolutely love living in Tennessee, I've been to 40 state's and tenn. is the best.

40Hawaii
How are Hawaii, New York, Alaska, and Washington State not at # 47-48-49-50?!?! I could see why New York and Alaska would be so high but Washington and Hawaii?!?! Those two are the best...

HTML_RuleZ_D00D

Welcome to Hawaii! Home of tsunamis, hurricanes, and storms!

42Georgia

43New Mexico

TopTenJackson

44Indiana
Indiana has to be the most boring place ever.. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO! I can't wait to leave this place.
YAY, were not the worst!

45Virginia
Did anyone forget this state? No one knows about this state because its so not popular except near D.C. so bad state traffic!
If it's the name Virginia so there are a lot of virgins in Virginia?

CerealGuy

46South Dakota

47Maryland

48Minnesota

49Montana

50Ohio
