What's interesting to me is 4 of the 5 richest are all progressive states (and did not even include NY or CA !). Alaska is the exception, but I think it's an anomaly because it has very low population and lots of resources (oil). ALL of the poorest are very conservative states - most southern except for KY and WVa.

Coincidence ? whistle I don't think so... any one else ??
