People living in Montana and Alaska have the most pride in their states.

A new Gallup Poll shows that 77% of people living in each state say it's the best or one of the best possible states in which to live.  

Utah, Wyoming, Texas, and Hawaii were the next highest states on the list with approval ratings of at least 68%.  

At the very bottom of the list was Rhode Island, with an approval rating of 18%.

Illinois was just a bit higher at 19%.

California sits in the middle of the road at 51%.
