I am a wondering which state is better to live in Ohio or New Mexico I am left leaning so new mexico is better politically so what about other factors I also don't have any money constraints, Also weather wise which is better I don't like harsh winters or really hot summers and love rain and spring is my favorite time of the year. Also which has better nature I would assume New Mexico.

I'm so going New Mexico. But what you're describing above is more like Oregon, Washington and the like. Check out the basic "City-data" for the state you're researching for the annual average weather. It gives you a pretty good idea. Summers in NM are hot and it will leave you wishing it'd rain more often, it's a pretty dry place except for rainy seasons.

Rainy and New Mexico don't really go together. Ohio, on the other hand is lush and the southern part is pretty well forested.

If you do go to New Mexico, I would recommend living in a higher elevation city or town like Santa Fe. They get a bit more rain and the mountains around are pretty lush at least by Rocky Mountain west standards.

As far as temps, northern New Mexico is not much hotter than Ohio (and cooler in some locations), but summer is longer by a few weeks on either end. Of course where you have elevation and cooler summers/wetter weather in New Mexico, you also have snowier winters.
