Montana Has Most State Pride in New Gallup Poll

I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.

-John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

There are so many things to love about our great state of Montana. People who aren’t from here but have visited want to be from here. Transplants claim to be born and raised here. Celebrities and millionaires call Montana home. Not only is Montana the most beautiful place in the world, you’d also be hard pressed to find this many kind, generous, caring and genuine residents anywhere else.

In a new Gallup poll, 77% of Montanans surveyed said that our state is “the best possible state to live in”. I would most certainly agree with that. Alaska was a close second with Utah, Wyoming and Texas rounding out the top five.

Residents who aren’t so proud? Rhode Island came in first with only 18% of residents surveyed saying their state was the best, followed by Illinois, Mississippi, Louisiana & Michigan. Why would you live in a state that you are not proud of?

I can’t say I was surprised by the results of this poll, everybody knows Montana Is For Badasses.
