That's just me. These rankings are irrelevant because all that matters is personal taste. The things that I despise about liberal places are precisely why liberals love them. And vice versa.
The majority of American if given the choice between MS & CA would choose CA by far... But I do agree it more about personal taste..

That is you. Mississippi is not my cup of tea. In fact, Mississippi has too much of the Old South to make me want to be there. I can buy a house in the woods anywhere. Why do it in a place where I would have a hard time fitting in? For as much crap that goes on in California, there are alot of places I would consider.

Now, if you were to compare Mississippi to other conservative states, Mississippi is still a place I would never move to. I would be more inclined to pick Idaho, Texas, places further west.

I would pick California over Mississippi. California is a big state, and I'm not limited to Los Angeles. There are other areas to give a chance.

California is rated just a blip above Mississippi in education.....
Before democrats took over the state, it was the highest ranked in the nation.
Democrat policies and millions of illegals have dropped it almost to the bottom In the nation along with
one of the highest poverty rates -- biggest wealth gap. Good work Dems....

Talking Mississippi -- Conservative Utopia and perennial challenger for WORST state in America

I have family in Arkansas.

They laugh about their state's motto:

"Thank God for Mississippi!"

And that the first elected GOP governor of Mississippi only took office in 1992? https://ballotpedia.org/Party_contro...ate_government ; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirk_Fordice

Mississippi has been a "mess" in many instances for well over a century. But to blame the GOP for that (the exact same argument can and must be made about West Virginia and other southern/conservative states) is ridiculous, given that party's relative recent domination of politics in the state. Democrats held the state back in many ways through their resistance to education reform, embrace of racism/KKK, and other means. It'll take much more than a few years of GOP control to turn around the disaster that total Dem control of these states created.

And as others have mentioned, its no secret that the most violent, poor areas in these states are in those parts controlled totally by Democrats.
yes, but those states have always been controlled by conservatives. The Democrats were once the conservative party.

But that's me. Most people don't care too much about politics. They don't think much and are probably happier overall. Ideally, I'd live in the woods in ID, WY, MT or AK.
