A new poll from WalletHub.com shows Nevada is in 39 when it comes to being the most patriotic state in the Union. The state of Virginia came in at number one, while New York state place last.
Further breakdown showed that for “military engagement,” Alaska ranked first, while Minnesota is 50. For civic engagement, Wisconsin is number one, while Arkansas came in last.
Nevada placed 18 and 48 respectively.
The same survey adds that patriotism is waning. While 38 percent of Americans said the U.S. was the best country in the world in 2011, that number fell to 28 percent in 2014. With a ranking of one being the best, so-called ‘red states’ scored an average of 24.1 compared to 26.7 for ‘blue states.’
