Wyoming Named Most Conservative State in America…Again
Wyoming has to deal with a lot of stereotypes. People think we all ride horses, have our walls filled with guns and are super-conservative. Actually, a lot of that is true especially that last one since Wyoming was just named the most conservative state in America...again.
