    It's not scientific, of course, but fun none-the-less:

    Matt Shirley asked his 300,000 followers to vote on which state their home state hates the most. What has emerged from these results is not meant to be comprehensive or scientifically accurate by any means...

    Well, California seems to have the biggest image problem.

    I've read that much of the hatred is caused
    by Californistanians fleeing their state, &
    moving to where they're not wanted.

    When the tech industry was shifting to Texas (mostly Austin) from California there were bumper stickers that said "Welcome to Texas, now go home".

    I've read the same. And on the flip side, tons of people from other states come here, especially to Bakersfield (especially lots of Texans). And those who move there love it there, while those born 'n raised hate it there. It's interesting, but it seems to be how things go here. For the most part, anyways. I met one guy who moved here many years ago, thought the entire state was like LA and San Fransisco, and he hates it here. But I definitely don't hate California. But, Indiana on the other hand, I walk past an Axle Rose bobble head and my first thought is "**** Indiana."

    Wow, a lot of people hate California. Maybe America isn't such so hopeless... :p

    A lot of people hate it because they don't know what it's actually like here. It's basically been near impossible to convence most people I know back in Indiana that the cost of living around Bakersfield is very comparable to where I was in Indiana, that my taxes aren't outrageously high, that heat is nothing without the humidity, and it is most definitely not LA or San Fransisco here and I haven't walked around homeless people or piles of crap.

    We come in with all the money we got from selling houses and stock and drive up prices there - jealousy is at work.

    I imagine that a lot of the "hate" is based on sports rivalries and thus meaningless.

    That's not necessarily so much jealously as people in other states just do not make as much money as we do here.

    I'm not sure. If that were case then I think Indiana would probably be hating New England instead of Kentucky, which is the state Hoosiers tend to dog on the most.

    So, roughly the same population as California.

    I assume there's at least a good chance that most of this interstate hatred stems from that reason. Probably based on a lot of stigmas.
