It's a combination of envy and ignorance. Envy because California is a rich & successful state with a very high standard of livng and, deep down, most of the haters know they would rather live here but probably couldn't make it to save their lives. Ignorance because 90% of them have never even been to California and instead react only to the caricature of it painted by right wing propaganda outlets like Fox.

I agree with your conclusions though, people don't hate california, they hate their missinformed IDEA of California.

Go to the World Forum on City-Data and do a poll of different states...I'm positive California will be in the top 3, but most likely #1. The only people I've met who have a negative view of California are FAR right wing conservatives who let politics ruin their lives. I guess someone has been watching too much Fox News...

Im a FAR right wing Republican and I LOVE California! So there!
