The LIST 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.
Well states like KY (Mr Ran Paul & Mitch McConnell ) are "taker states"... they pay IN LESS $$ to the US Treasury than they TAKE OUT !! So Mr Paul & McConnell , want to be honest... send the $$ back to the US Treasury and quit being a Govt titty sucker !!
I couldn't open your list so went to another source which may be different.
But Coming from a different perspective by living in the middle of the country
All but a couple of anomalies I see that location has an effect of it. Also area, throwing ot the anomalies . Alaska and Minnesota . All are small states, all among the first states, all close to the coast ( all first states were coastal) . Most close to Washington DC.
Agai, no coincidence.

There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
Thank you. Interesting stuff. More detail than I expected. On a side note: I have always been fascinated by geography and as a kid I always thought it was cool that Alaska was by far the largest state but was also the least populated by a fair margin. I remember it passed up Wyoming quite a while back in population, but I didn't know it had by now "rocketed" up to 4th from last. Heh.
