Illinois is the worst possible state to live, according to residents in survey

A recent Gallup poll finds Illinois residents say their state is the worst state to live in.

According to Gallup, one in four Illinois residents say the state is the worst place to live, followed by 17% each in Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Gallup surveyed a random sample of 600 adults, aged 18 and older, living in the United States and the District of Columbia using telephone interviews from June to December 2013.

The survey pointed to Illinois resident’s lack of trust in state government and resentment about state taxes as possible factors for one in four residents saying Illinois is the worst place to live.

Only 1% of Iowans surveyed said Iowa is the worst possible state to live in.
