While we’re on a roll with all things “America’s Birthday”, let’s get out the measuring tape and see who’s bigger… when it comes to patriotism.
WalletHub has determined through blood, sweat and research— 2019’s Most Patriotic States in America.
We love themetrics WalletHub manages to use for all its research. This time around, they took the 50 states and used 13 key indicators, including average number of military enlistees to share of adults who voted in 2016, and more.
New Hampshire is the most patriotic state, followed by Wyoming and Vermont. Who would’ve guessed that?
Here’s a cool stat to relish (like hotdog relish... HA HA HA!): Alaska has the most veterans per 1,000 civilian adults, 127, which is 2.4 times more than in New York, the state with the fewest at 54.
See how shamefully unpatriotic your state might be, here:
Depending on where your state has fallen, you may need to step-up your patriotic game. Do what you must. Change your state’s destiny. Just don’t do anything stupid or illegal. But if you do something that is, indeed, stupid—please get it on video. Please.
