Poll: DC worst place in country, Americans say

Lexi Lonas of The Hill –

Americans said in a recent poll by YouGov that Washington, D.C., is the worst place in America.

The poll paired two states in head-to-head matches and states were then ranked on their “win percentage.” The poll included all 50 states plus D.C.

D.C. came in last place, only winning 35 percent of its match-ups. Surveyors said that D.C. lagging at the bottom could be due to the political nature of the city or the fact it is not a state.

D.C. has been fighting for statehood for years while voters are split on the issue

Other low-ranking states include Alabama and Mississippi, which only won 38 percent of their match-ups.
