I’m posting this mostly as a humblebrag because among the states where the fewest residents of their state would leave if they could, my lovely home state of Maine is tied for first, with Hawaii and Montana. You hear that, America? We love our home state just as much as Hawaiin citizens do, and given the fact that we have to suffer through some ridiculous winters and a Tea Party crackpot hijacked our Governorship, that says a lot about how fantastic it is here (also, never fight a land war in Asia, and never run two liberals against a Tea Party politician in a state without a run-off).
Anyway, here’s the map (click to embiggen).
And if the color code is too complex for you, here’s the ten states residents want to leave the most, and the ten states where people are happiest to stay where they are.
And look, I’m not trying to sell any of you on Maine. I’ll let Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach do that for me (click to embiggen).
