Surprise, Surpise Blue States spilling the most red ink

"Want to know which states are in the worst financial condition? One telling indicator that might not immediately come to mind is whether most of its citizens identify themselves as Democrats."

"The five states in the worst financial condition -- Illinois, New York, Connecticut, California and New Jersey - are all among the bluest of blue states. The five most fiscally fit are more of a mix. Three -- Utah, Nebraska and Texas -- boast Republican majorities and two -- New Hampshire and Virginia -- skew Democratic."

"Of the 10 states in the worst financial condition, eight are among a total of 23 defined by Gallup as "solidly Democratic," meaning the Democrats enjoy an
advantage of 10 percentage points or greater in party affiliation. These states
include the ones listed above as making up the bottom five, plus Massachusetts,
Ohio and Wisconsin."


Keeping in mind the axiom that "Correlation does not necessarily mean causation", all I know is that I live in Detroit, the armpit of the United States and it has been ran by Democrats since the beginning of time. Coincidence? I don't think so.

  1. And they were being too charitable... Virginia skews Red (with a recent exception) and New Hampshire is home to the libertarian free state project.
