Business Insider asked 1603 people to answer 22 questions with a state that wasn’t their own. The poll was carried out using SurveyMonkey’s Audience feature, which was more accurate predicting the 2012 election than numerous traditional pollsters.
|Massachusetts has the weirdest accent. Trailing close behind are Louisiana, Alabama, Minnesota, New York and New Jersey.|
I bet if you asked 100 Minnesotans, at least 90 would deny they had an accent. Maybe a lot of people think Fargo is in Minnesota.
|Georgia is the nicest, followed by Minnesota. The South gets high marks here, potentially because the rest of the country doesn’t understand that “Bless your heart” is facetious.|
|While this was the most competitive category by far, people seem to believe that Oregon, Alaska and Maine are the most underrated.|
Minnesota didn’t get enough votes to get colored beyond pale in any of the other questions. Click here to see all the results.
