New Jersey is the LEAST Patriotic State According to Study
Wallethub's latest study ranks New Jersey as the least patriotic state, with Pennsylvania and Delaware lingering not too far ahead on the list.
I'm sorry, is anyone else as confused as I am right now? New Jersey? Least patriotic? You mean the area where all I see is pride for our military people, and giant flags on almost every pickup truck around town?
I can't speak for North Jersey, but I know South Jersey definitely displays their patriotism. Case in point the Scary Baby Jeep with a giant AMERICAN FLAG on the back:
Welp, Wallethub's findings say otherwise. In its study, "2017's Most Patriotic States in America," New Jersey is at the very freaking bottom for the second time in a row.
Based off the "benchmarks of patriotism", New Jersey has the least amount when it comes to military service, voting and volunteerism.
Trust me I was just as surprised, but at least it wasn't because of a lack of American pride - right?
