Top 10 Worst US States to Live In

This is the 10 worst US states to live in, if you ever consider moving to the US don't move to these states. Period, Trust me...

The Top Ten

1 New Jersey New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

New Jersey has gangs and violence and terror and organized crime starting to kids and school and getting worse, so bad people can't believe it, search 'Cherry Hill Nazis' to see where the worst one in US lives. Judges and DCPP kidnap children for $10k per month and use history's worst medical terror on parents and the children, Bergen County recent example, lookup New Jersey Child Welfare Kidnapping and see how they are so bad people can't believe it until they talk to others in the neighborhoods or it happens to them, dcpp comes in the night illegally abducts children screaming as they are taken ripped away from parents arms by corrupt rotten and killer police - whose police chief shot his wife in the head in Englewood, Bergen County, claiming suicide and when they came to get him he killed him self - when they're not shooting kids in front of schools with their hands raised (Teaneck). Anyone who likes New Jersey has simply never had experience with the corruption, crime or terror ...more

Corrupt government all taxes too high off the charts. There is even a exit tax when you leave. Run away government spending union controlled. don't move here!

This state is run by Democrats, almost a million of its residents live in poverty, most cramped state in terms of traffic (4th smallest state in the nation! ), and Camden looks like a ghost town! I don't live here, but I don't think I wanna live or even move here! Hell no way!

2 Mississippi Mississippi

I heard it is the most racist state, some of these states might be bad, but America is the best thing ever in the history of the universe, no matter what any weird foreign people say. America has 30% taxes, which is pretty good, the government makes enough money, and we get enough money for food and a house. Also, France has 70% taxes, which is insane.

I live here and it's depressing as hell. To put it simply, either everyone is okay continuing to settle for mediocrity, or they're too ignorant to know there's better out there.

Ok I love in Rhode Island and we drove through here on our way to New Orleans. So, as you know, Rhode Island (and most of the Northeast for that matter) have some old factories, but dang, this was really bad. We drove through Jackson and the only things we saw were smog, homeless people, and white people beating up black people. Come on! This is pathetic...

Their Trashy And Barbaric Like Racism Can Testify

3 California California

Really? I need to clear something up. When people think of California, they assume the WHOLE GIGANTIC STATE is like Los Angeles. Their mind automatically goes to South LA, which is known for being trashy, dumpy, ghetto, full of traffic and illegal immigrants, polluted and full of famous people with plastic surgery.

That couldn't be further from the truth. That's like saying all of Michigan is like Detroit and Flint. When I think of California, I think of the snowcapped mountains, pristine beaches, Disneyland, towering redwood trees, sunsets, In N Out, and other things that make California an awesome state. I live in the city of Orange, CA (it's in North OC) and it is clean, family oriented, extremely safe, etc. I'm a 10 minute drive from Disneyland, and the schools in Orange are great. No traffic issues. I love living here.

I've only visited California once, but that was enough for me. It's truly the worst U.S. state! There's too many young families and gangsters around here. Everyone is the same. They all dress urban and the women all have blonde hair and a small child in a stroller. The valley girl accent is the worst accent ever! Californians are so arrogant. Everyone there is a stereotype. Too many creeps on the streets too. I was in a "nice" part of California too (on vacation in Anaheim) and I still hated it. I don't see how anyone can like this materialistic, overpriced, bad ass state. It used to be the best state in the country, but that was before the hippies took over. California, I HATE YOU! - olliv

California is an overtaxed, un-constitutional, overrated, stupid state with a bunch of weirdos. Its government is clearly the worst in the government. And unless you live along the coast you have NO say! Its not just LA (which does suck), but everywhere. Boring, overrated state!

Earthquakes, terrible air quality, and tons of forest fires. Need I say more? - Smash64

High crime rate, High taxes, Too hot and hardly anything to do. 2nd least friendly state for children and is only getting worse. - ReganTheBeast

It's basically a gigantic swamp.

It's the toilet of America, in my opinion. After all, it flushes out our largest river. - JustAnAccount

It’s no wonder they’re a poor state! They have outrageous state taxes and the money obviously doesn’t go toward fixing roads! Coming here is like you took a big step back in time.

5 Arizona Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

What desert wasteland? There is no such thing if you look past Phoenix. I've lived here for three years plus, and I love it. I've lived in New York, Maine, Nevada and California and each and every state have wonderful treasures to share with everyone. I have been in all the states of the lower 48 and love each state of our beautiful country. Have a wonderful day exploring our beautiful country. God Bless America.

I live here and agree. - WWEfanJayden

There's Phoenix, and the rest is boring, rural wasteland and desert, except for maybe the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam or something. - JustAnAccount

I love this place. It could be better if the air quality improved and people cared more about the environment. - Smash64

6 Alabama Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

Alabama is redneck, dirty, ugly, and you're lucky if you see people wearing shoes. There is nothing to do.

I live in Alabama, this is rude! We are NOT redneck, dirty, ugly, and YES, we wear shoes! WE ARE CIVILIZED PEOPLE! Same to other states: Every state is beautiful in it's only way!

Alabama: dive headfirst into the gene pool here and you'll crack your skull open

Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana - That whole area is one big piece of crap. Georgia might be ok, but the rest is full of crime, pollution, and ugliness. - JustAnAccount

7 Texas Texas Texas is a state in the USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

I have lived in 2 other states. I could not wait to come home to the greatest state in the union. It is a multicultural state. Sure it is hot during Summer and late Spring. Our late Fall and early Springs are beautiful! Best time to visit is March and April. The landscape in central Texas are covered in Bluebonnets. Texas also provides various landscapes. We have the Hill Country, the Gulf Coast, east Texas has an array of tall Pine Trees. Our cultures run from Mexican, German, Czech, and many more. Texas is a melting pot of people. Yes, Texas as well as any state has its problems. But I would not want to live any where else.

So much arrogance and hate. Definitely wish I lived anywhere else.

I'll tell you, from experience because I've lived here all my life that this is a place to pass up. There are a few nice things about this state but they are overloaded by the bad. It is way too hot, growing number of people can't speak a word of English, yet expect you to learn Spanish to accommodate them, can't buy alcohol at certain times, drivers are some of the worst, Dallas and other areas are quickly turning into ghetto trashbags, and this state refuses to change for the better. I can't wait to move - Johnnyt800

Texas is the greatest state in the country. Great food, places to visit, and a nice place to live despite the weather. - KeyboardHero

9 Illinois Illinois Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

Absolutely! Highest taxes in the nation, so much crime, unionism, disappearing jobs, Democrat mayors in Chicago, Democrats running the state, no wonder Illinois is such a craphole! More people in Chicago are being murdered than any other state! More people are leaving this state than any other state in the nation! Illinois sucks!

Chicago basically runs the entire state politically and financially. It'll always vote for the Democrat in presidential elections because Chicago's population outnumbers the rest of the state combined. Absurd taxes, the insatiable teachers' union of CPS that blames the inefficiency of their crappy schools on not having enough money, laughable corruption, ridiculous amounts of gang violence, etc. If current trends continue, Illinois will be economically ruined thanks to Chicago.

If Chicago seceded from Illinois (not going to happen) then the state would be the most boring in America. - Smash64

10 Alaska Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

Alaska is a beautiful state with the northern lights and very wealthy in natural resources but also has a very high crime and suicide rate. So not a great place to live but it's a definitely great state to visit. - countnightdark13

Lot's of personal space in the summer - not many people live there. But in the winter you'll be under several feet of snow... - JustAnAccount

What do you expect people? An amusement park? It's Alaska for pete's sake... - TopTenHaters

Florida as a travel destination (in the fall or winter)? Great! To live? OH HELL NO! Humidity and storms, worst education system, worst people (rednecks and old people), flat, lots of crime and poverty...who would want to live here?

I've had the misfortune of living in this open-air dump called Ohio all my life. The job market sucks, as does the weather. The politicians are greedy and incompetent and the people are worthless, fat, ugly inbred trash of all colors. They should rename it Blowhio.

Boring as hell and the weather is so wacky here. Come here if you want to experience all seasons at once. - UberHamster

Three words.

The Paul Brothers.

13 Arkansas Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

I live here, and I hate it. The amount of rednecks and poverty is high. Also, the humidity is unbearable. There is absolutely nothing to do AT ALL. No theme parks, no beaches, no mountains, no forests, nothing. Little Rock is full of murder and crime, and it's severely ghetto. Finally, Arkansas is EXTREMELY depressed.

Poverty, rednecks, crime, heat, earthquakes is enough for Arkansas to make it. - ReganTheBeast

A boring rural patch of nature, high poverty, populated by white trash.
Worst place to rent in the USA. Bad thunderstorms and cold, icy springs and winters.

Worst state - DogeFan132

14 Wisconsin Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

I Have been to all 50 states at least TWICE in my adult life and can say without reservation that Wisconsin is one of the best run, most organized, cleanest, and enjoyable parts of the country. Even the weather is not too bad 9/12 of the year (no hurricanes, small earth tremors, seldom drought, only humidity and the occasional blizzard). Wisconsin is on the cutting edge of education, economics, tourism, politics, cheese, and beer. No other state in the union has as much going for it!

Wisconsin is nice. it is just weather the weather is kinda bad

Wisconsin still has nice spots but Walker has definitely hurt the education system and work environment. Their SAT scores went from 2nd highest in the nation to 41st in one year! Losing jobs at an alarming rate.

I am from Wisconsin and I am Scansin and proud this comment just makes me very very angry BITCH

15 New York New York

It's like there isn't a single parking space in the entire state. NYC isn't the only problem. Upstate is ok, but really there isn't much to see but hills and woods - it's pretty quiet. NYC is awesome in some aspects, but horribly terrible in others. Long Island has overpopulation and some pollution and stuff, but they have nice beaches and other landmarks. But to be honest, Connecticut is the cleaner, less populated, more peaceful version of New York. - JustAnAccount

If you've seen the movie "Escape From New York", NYC is actually worse than that. As for "upstate", you can't really tell when its under 14 feet of snow.

I live in New York, and the way the sate tells the schools how to teach the students... Its terrible!

The bull education system! Crimes committed by school executives, high taxes on middle class, ass drivers, wanna-be teenagers, I can go on! Only upside is the breathtaking sunsets! I'd rather live in Kentucky than have to put up with Marylands bull!

What the heck?! Maryland is one of the best states in the US! Plus, it's flag is beautiful and unique.

Maryland is the best!
Maryland > Massachusetts/New York

I live in Maryland I have to agree. Crimes are committed. Why do you think we have a lot more shootings (Not only school shootings) in MD? - Ilovestephanie

17 Oklahoma Oklahoma

Oklahoma is full of inconsiderate idiots. You can see it in how we treat each other, in how we drive, and in our politicians. Only in oklahoma does Mary Fallin get elected twice! We can't pass education reform, but we can fight all day about religious monuments on the capitol grounds. I've been able to travel all over the US and no place sucks as much as oklahoma. Don't believe me? Visit once and find out! It does t matter if you pick the smallest town to OKC or Tulsa, the rest of the US should build a wall around it and let the purge happen.

Oklahoma isn't expensive, it's very inexpensive to live HERE-as I'm a resident of Oklahoma. Whoever wrote that is an idiot and doesn't know what they are talking about. It may be full of some poor people, but so is every state! Also it's not boring, and as for being a redneck society, I'd rather be redneck than inbred like you seem to be.

Yes, Oklahoma has plenty of small-minded people, but for the most part folks are friendly and will help you if you need it. Main problems lie with the state's corrupt government, very poor infrastructure, and poverty.

So many tornadoes! - Smash64

19 Tennessee Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.

Where do I start? Rednecks, Poverty, heat, 2nd most dangerous state next to Louisiana and one of the worst governed state next to California. - ReganTheBeast

Calm down Tennesse does suck but it shouldn't be number 9 maybe number 44

20 Massachusetts Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

Reasons to like Massachusetts.

1) awesome history. Massachusetts was where the American revolution started and much of our historical heritage. The battle of bunker hill and the battle of concord bridge were fought here and many of the founding fathers were born and razed here.

2) there is no racism here. Most people in Massachusetts are of Italian or Irish descent, but there are large black, Asian and Hispanic minorities here. We all treat ourselves with respect regardless of race, religion or ethnicity and there has never been any major discrimination (which is more than some Alabamans and Mississippians can say).

3) we are the second most tolerant state in the country when it comes to gay, lesbian and bisexual rights (California being number one)

4) best hospitals and medical facilities not only In the country but in the WORLD. We have Boston children's hospital, bargemen women's, Boston general hospital and almost ten other ones known around the world ...more

I live in Massachusetts. This state is the best state I lived in! I don't want it on 19. I want it to be at like number 50.

It's only bad to live in Massachusetts during the winter, because its cold, snowy, and disgusting! Otherwise, Massachusetts is amazing - kaitlynrad11

They discriminate against good-behaving people. - giddyjoker

21 Hawaii Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

It's beautiful, my wife and I honeymooned there. Loved visiting there, not so sure I'd want to live there. So far away from everything! Also, it's very expensive and many places are tourist traps. That said, Hawaii's positives are pretty obvious. Plus, the people were super-friendly (we were on Maui)...

There are spots to avoid. Those places are Waianae, Wahiawa, and Makaha. There are some more to name, like Honolulu if you're super impatient. Then, there are awesome places like the northern side of Oahu, and other places in the competition. There is one massive problem, it's always expensive here. Trust me, I'm a local from Hawaii.

Cobb county sucks but some parts in Cobb county are good stay out of south Cobb county

Nobody says that Georgia is the worst state.NOBODY! >:(

I love it here!

Georgia is over rated crime have got bad since a lot of people come from out of town

Washington is a beautiful country. It has great landforms and good cities. What's strange is that most of days are cold and rainy but not a lot of snow in the winter.

Washington is one of the most beautiful states in the country. Seattle is a great city, there are mountains, deserts, lakes, the ocean, caves, forests, plus lots of things to do. The only problem is the hipsters! - olliv

Utah is actually a great place to live and visit. Greatest snow on Earth for skiing/snowboarding. More National Parks than any other state besides California. Great place to raise a family. Low amount of natural disasters. Good economy. Good Universities. Gorgeous Mountains in the north and vast deserts in the south. Very diverse landscape.

Utah should be at number 50 because it's the best state. - Heyo_Simba

37 Montana Montana Montana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaña.

I forgot Montana existed for a while and I lived there for 20 years! It's a lame and boring state full of drunken trailer trash and rich, old retired people. Billings is a poverty hellhole full of crime and drug addicts. Probably one of the worst major cities in The United States. Horribly laid out, with absolutely nothing to do or see involving the city itself.

The rest of the state isn't so bad as long as your FILTHY RICH. People here are also terrible drivers and incredibly boring! All they ever talk about is Montana, because that's all they know about.

The reason Montana has so many people in bad living conditions is because real estate is outrageously overpriced. A trailer costs about a jaw dropping $300,000 in some areas. Not a middle class friendly state. You're either poor or rich here. - olliv

38 Oregon Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

Oregon is a good place to live. However, Portland, Or used to be a much better city 15 years ago. With the rise in crime, homeless, gang activity, and illegal immigration, and constant black lash/ protesting between the left right vs. ultra liberal groups has caused me to become disenchanted with the clean, beautiful, peaceful, and vibrant city Portland once was. 10 minutes you get off the Amtrack station and start walking downtown Portland, you run right across the homeless people sitting on the sidewalk. I have even found needles littered near Amtrack station right across from the commons appartmnent building for the homeless and low income people. If Portland doesn't watch out it will become another flop house like Los Angeles. Unfortunately, Portland is the only major city in Oregon and that only leaves you with two choices you either move to a different state or move to a smaller city or town in Oregon.

Love living here! Minneapolis is great, and if you know how to dress for the cold and drive in it, you can have a great time here! Beautiful scenic bluffs along the Mississippi River in the southeast part of the state, and unmatched beauty along the Lake Superior shore that inspired native son Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited! There's always something to do here, Minneapolis trails only New York and Chicago in number of theaters! Have all four pro sports teams in beautiful stadiums! There are no hurricanes, not too many tornadoes, and haven't even been too many snowstorms. Plus our road maintenance crews are second to none, especially in the Twin Cities. Really shouldn't be on the list. A great place to live.

Yay we aren't below 25! Although it's cold and all but once you live or stay there for awhile, you know until you get used to it you will be fine.
