Top ten states with the most and least people who'd leave if they could: Suck it, New Jersey
Photos and more below.
Last month, we posted about the top eight ways Colorado kicks the sh*t out of New Jersey based on surveys compiled by Governor John Hickenlooper's office in which our fair state crushed NJ after the latter's guv, Chris Christie, made negative comments about the impact of the local marijuana industry.
Here's another indication that Colorado is a more attractive place to live than NJ: a new Gallup poll ranking states by how many people would move away if they could. Continue for two lists, with the first focusing on the ten states with the most residents who'd like to split and the second listing the ten with the smallest number of possible movers -- and as you'll see, there's a lot more satisfaction among Coloradans than New Jerseyites. Check out the results below.
States where the most residents would leave if they could:
Number 10: Mississippi
Number that would leave: 39 percent Number 9: Louisiana
Number that would leave: 40 percent Number 8: Massachusetts
Number that would leave: 41 percent Number 7: New York
Number that would leave: 41 percent Number 6: New Jersey
Number that would leave: 41 percent
Continue to keep counting down the states with the most and least people who'd leave if they could.Next Page
