Maine Among Top 10 ‘Most Patriotic States’
Just in time for the Fourth of July, why not take a look at who has the most love for our country. Maine residents fly the stars and stripes with pride landing us in the top 10!
Based on Military Engagement (percentage of enlisted residents, veterans, and active-duty personnel) and Civic Engagement (volunteer rate, number of peace corps volunteers, and percentage of residents who voted in the last election) WalletHub.com has determined the most and least patriotic states.
Maine ranks as the 6th most patriotic state in America. Most important was Maine's number of veterans ranked 3rd for most veterans in the states.
According to WalletHub.com Virginia is the most patriotic state and New York came in as least patriotic.
Over-all patriotism seems to be down with 38% of Americans said the U.S. was the best country in the world in 2011, with that number falling to 28% in 2014.
