The state of California is huge, meaning more potential for hate. A recent poll by Public Policy Polling asked 3,300 Americans over a four month period if they felt certain states were favorable, unfavorable or they weren't sure. The biggest loser: California.
Here are the other four states that joined California at the bottom of the barrel:
1.California (27% favorable and 44% unfavorable)
2. Illinois (19-29)
3. New Jersey (25-32)
4. Mississippi (22-28)
5. Utah (24-27)
So what was the most favorable states? Hawaii, followed by Colorado; Alaska was up there too. Also, 40% of respondents described themselves as Democrats, 37% were Republicans and the remainder identified themselves as "Independent/Other."
So much for California love, at least among these folks.
