Texans Love Texas

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- Most folks know that Texans take a special pride in our state. And now a new poll proves that there's no pride like Lone Star pride.

Gallup asked more than 600 residents in each of the 50 states to rate whether or not their state was a good place to live. The states with the happiest residents are Montana and Alaska, both of which had 77 percent of respondents saying that their state was the best.

Texas isn't too far behind with 68 percent responding that it is the best.

But happiness aside, Gallup noticed something special about how Texans responded. Gallup chalks up the boastful responses to Texas' high standard of living, trust in state government and less negative feelings about state taxes.
