Market research firm YouGov polled 1,000 people across the US – representing every race gender, income, and political affiliation – and came up with a list of the Most Liked & Disliked States.

Hawaii is the most liked state, followed by Montana and then… wait for it….Wyoming.

New Jersey is the only state that is more disliked than it is liked. 40% of Americans have an unfavorable view of New Jersey, while only 30% have a favorable one.
