Red states' credit beats the blues' - credit scores & politics - MSN Money

Quote:
There are many indicators you can use to gauge economic health, but for general purposes, average credit score is a good catchall barometer. CardRatings.com looked at credit score data from Experian to see how credit scores have changed over the past four years. By compiling this data state by state, and sorting it according to how those states voted in the 2008 presidential election, CardRatings.com was able to break out whose credit scores have done better over the past four years -- households in red states or those in blue states.
Interesting to see, since credit scores are necessary for pretty much everything these days- from loans and big-ticket purchases to getting a job or an apartment to rent.

I imagine those minute changes in percentages represent huge chunks of money being moved around...

My fellow Americans, are you better off now than you were four years ago?
Politics aside, are you better off than you were four years ago? Have you had any financial troubles or gains worth noting? Personally, I am fortunate enough to not have suffered...

With the exception of Louisiana, you couldn't pay me to live in the states mentioned.

Florida versus Nebraska, no contest.

Hey, I'm not gonna sugar-coat it. Rural living isn't for everyone, nor is city living. If you can't deal with living someplace, nobody's gonna blame you for not wanting to be there/moving away.

The worst 4 were the poster children in the housing crisis and have nothing to do with party. MANY people both in and out of government and in BOTH parties are to blame.

Spurious reason for saying if a state is GOP or Dem. Obama won an election it would have taken a miracle for the GOP to win.

The worst, Florida, is a REPUBLICAN state not Dem. Gov and 1 senator are GOP. US house is overhwelmingly GOP.
2nd worst is a true purple. Rep gov, 1 Rep Sen, House is 2 Rep 1 Dem yet voted for Obama.
3 to 8 no argument
9 Wisconsin is light blue at most.

The best 2 are riding a commodity wave.
Vermont? no idea why.
Nebraska commodity wave.
WV? really?
TX. Commodity wave
Conn? really?
IA. Commodity wave
LA. No idea why
Hawaii. No idea why. Almost flat anyway.
