Louisiana Perceived as Drunkest State


We already know we are the fattest state in the nation, and a recent survey suggests outsiders may have a theory about where we are getting our excess calories. Originally reported by Business Insider, a poll asked 1608 Americans to give their thoughts on which state tops certain categories, including dumbest, smartest, ugliest, and even drunkest. Guess which one Louisiana won. 

 

The small sampling of America decided that Louisiana was the drunkest state, with 174 out of 1568 votes, a total of 11 percent. The Boot got honorable mentions in a few other categories.

 

Although 305 out of 1603 people think that New York has the best food, Louisiana and California received shout outs. Those surveyed favored Massachusetts for weirdest accent, with 264 out of 1603 of the total votes. However, Loosiana trails behind, as does Minnesota, Alabama, New York, and New Jersey.  

 

Respondents perceive Mississippi to be the dumbest state, giving our neighbors 237 out of 1442.
