Not true of all blue states, New Hampshire and Vermont for example are near the top. Anyway, my guess is that it’s because the more economically and socially developed states generally lean left, and general trends such as capitalism’s long-term rise in unemployment tends to affect these states first before reaching the backwaters.2nd to last! ROFL. 2nd to an even bluer state. Yuck. Bet that leaves you much to be proud of, huh?
Red states at the top and blue states rotting on the bottom. Any guesses as to why?
