The Most Patriotic States – Where does Georgia fall?

The study also found that red states are more patriotic than blue states.

It’s almost Independence Day and while the holiday aspect is cause for celebration, the true meaning of the Fourth of July still resonates, in some states more than others.

WalletHub recently analyzed all 50 states ranking 13 different indicators on everything from share of enlisted military population to share of adults who voted in the 2016 presidential election to AmeriCorps volunteers per capita.

Where did the Peach State fall on the list? Right at No. 10. Virginia came in at No. 1 and Massachussetts in dead last.
