The Fourth of July can be pretty competitive. If your neighbor has the best ILLEGAL fireworks display, they win. But this is on a whole other level . . .
A new study ranked all 50 states according to how PATRIOTIC they are.
They looked at things like how many people enlist in the military . . . how many veterans there are . . . how many adults voted in the last election . . . and how often people google the American flag. (???)
According to the results, the state that loves America the most is VIRGINIA.
The ten most patriotic states are Virginia . . . Alaska . . . Wyoming . . . South Carolina . . . Colorado . . . Washington . . . Hawaii . . . Idaho . . . Georgia . . . and North Carolina.
The LEAST patriotic state is New Jersey, followed by Illinois . . . Massachusetts . . . Rhode Island . . . New York . . . Connecticut . . . California . . . Michigan . . . Pennsylvania . . . and Delaware.
