Alaskan State Pride

Mental_floss recently posted a map created by Janet Loehrke and Jolie Lee of USA Today that shows which state has the most state pride, with Alaska and Montana topping the chart at 77%. Loehrke and Lee used data collected from Gallup to calculate the percentage based on the amount of residents who say their state is "the very best or one of the best places to live." Utah came in third with 70%, while Rhode Island closed the list at 18%.
