What Does Your State Hate? New Data Shows Each State’s Most Hated Thing

What Does Your State Hate? New Data Shows Each State’s Most Hated Thing

I doubt it.

You mean no state produced an answer like "Jews" or "Moslems"? I'm guessing the data have been manipulated.

Some individuals were named. South Carolina hates Edward Snowden; Delaware hates Casey Affleck (kind of an obscure choice, but it's kind of an obscure state); Connecticut hates Eli Manning.

The least likely to be accurate: Michigan hates Pride and Prejudice. I doubt if 1% of Michiganders can even tell you what that is.

New Hampshire hates God? Wow, they really are free thinkers.

Remind me to keep a low profile when I drive through Indiana (which I often do). They hate bloggers.

  1. It's probably one of those cases where they ignore the actual most common "hated" or "searched for" terms and go with the "most distinctive" ones.

  2. I think you're both giving them way too much credit. This smells strongly of Eau de Pulled It Directly Out Of My Ass
