Yes, many don't even realize CO and OK share a border, small as it may be.

I think part of it is that many people think of the Rockies, recreational marijuana and the liberal attitudes of Denver/Boulder when they think of Colorado. This perception (correct or not) is a stark contrast with the plains of Kansas and Oklahoma and the political climate of those states.

In some ways I forget Colorado shares one single point of a border with us. It does technically count, but just barely.

Doesn't Missouri have 9 shared borders? They probably forget one of those.

Missouri and Tennessee each border 8 other states, the most in the nation.

MO: NE, KS, OK, AR, TN, KY, IL, IA

Weird that you can travel from Chicago to ABQ and only need to travel through two intervening states despite a 1,300 mile trip.

The strangest to me are: NM/Oklahoma, CO/Oklahoma, and Missouri/Tennessee.

Kansas/Colorado isn't really strange, Utah and Wyoming are arguably more conservative then Kansas. Rural Colorado is quite conservative as well.

So close lol. To be fair I didn't go and count, I just took a guess. Not surprised about how these two border 8 states though, they are landlocked and skew Eastward, which the Eastern half has more yet smaller states.

Agreed Buckeye. In fact, there is a pending lawsuit in federal court. OK & NE are suing CO for the unintended consequences of their residents purchasing pot in CO and transporting it across state lines. This is having a negative fiscal impact on the cost of enforcement of pot laws in Nebraska and Oklahoma. If I recall, CO won the first round. Apologies for off-topic.
