The folks over at Business Insider partnered with SurveyMonkey Audience in order to poll Americans on their state-by-state perceptions in several different categories. In total, 1,603 Americans were asked to choose the best and worst states regarding such questions as which has the best food, the best scenery or the rudest residents.
What interested us here at Gamedayr, of course, were the results of the sporting polls. As we can see in the map above, Texas, New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California have some of the best sports fans in the nation according to the poll.
Interestingly, New York, Texas and California were also states rated amongst having the worst sports fans in the nation. Florida and, yes, Alaska are also pretty bright red.
