The poll includes New Brunswick, which is in Canada, but doesn't include Tennessee or Texas. And Hawaii is misspelled.

(NB = New Brunswick)
(NE = Nebraska)

I live in Minnesota, and I love the four distinct seasons (although Spring merges into summer and is not very spring like some years), and the ample outdoor opportuntiites for skiing, hockey, hiking, camping fishing, and all the other stuff to do. I like the lakes, small cities like Duluth, Rochester, and having big city attractions in Minneapolis/St. Paul when I want to do something like go to the Twins, Vikings, or a Wild game or check out the Guthrie, art musuems among other things too.

It is not so frickin hot like other places that are experiencing rapid growth and its cities do not all look like they are carbon copies of places everywhere else. Some of the suburbs do, but the core cities are not all Starbucks and big box.

Some more things about KY:
- the natural resources. In an age where food, oil, and water are becoming scarce, Kentucky is one of the best places in the world to live. We have a perfect growing climate and very fertile soil, you could grow a lot of your own food with small garden.

Outside the Great Lakes, we have the most abundant fresh water resources in the world, with many of the largest rivers and lakes in the US. We really don't have anywhere that face major water shortages even during a drought.

With gas hitting $4 a gallon, I sure wouldn't want to commute 40 miles in LA, Atlanta, or Dallas. You can get from the outermost suburbans to downtown in 15 miles or less in any KY city.

We also have enough coal to power the entire US for 100 years

How can I take this poll seriously when there are numerous states MISSING from the list, as well as several misspelled states?

The state I live in isn't on the list, but I love Texas. For many reasons......

-It's all of the cities, Houston, San Antone, Dallas, Austin, Ft. Worth, El Paso....
-It's the many different people here
-It's Football (of course), it's Friday Night Lights, TCU, UT on Saturdays and the Cowboys (and to a lesser extent, the Texans) on Sundays
-It's the beef and BBQ
-It's snow on Easter and 70 degree days in December (I even love the crazy weather)
-It's more than 756 miles from east to west and 806 miles from north to south
-It's NASA, technology, medicine, finding alternative fuels, and Fortune 500 companies.
-It's the mountains and desert in the far west, the Permian Basin and the Panhandle, the beaches on the Gulf coast, the plains in the north and central, and hills of the south.
-It's the wild west of the past and a growing, promising future.
-It's the Alamo, the Astrodome, and growing skylines.
-And on top of all that, it's Texas pride and patriotism. How many other states do you know build themselves up as if they were their own country?

Like it or leave it, Texas is my #1. I like to visit other places, but I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.

Do you take any of these polls seriously? They are just silly polls on a message board!

maybe, but anyone who's older than 10 years should know that Nebraska is NE.

I live in Florida, and I like the diversity and that I'm close to the beach.......that's it.

I live in Pennsylvania. What do I like? The city feel, the grassroots culture, and the international diversity of West Philadelphia. As far as natural beauty is concerned, the entire eastern US kind of lacks.
