People who live in Texas really love Texas. But outside its irregular borders, and according to a Business Insider poll from 2013, the state isn’t exactly winning any popularity contests.

Actually, it’s a little worse than that.

The poll surveyed 1603 people, asking them questions to which they could only answer with a state other than their own. Of the 22 questions asked, Texas was the most popular answer twice. Once when participants were asked, “Which is your least favorite state?” And again when they were asked to name which state they would most like to see “kicked out of America.”


It seems even Business Insider couldn’t help but add, “That’s what you get, Texas, for always pulling the ‘We can leave America whenever we feel like it’ card.”

Well, y’all. We know when we’re not welcome. But your migratory patterns say otherwise, America.
