America's most miserable states
Americans are not any happier than they were last year. In fact, they are slightly more miserable.
West Virginia residents feel the most miserable in the country. It appears that they have many reasons to feel this way. The state is particularly poor. It has the second-lowest median household income in the country at $38,218, and the sixth-highest rate of poverty. Residents also face a number of health issues. More than one in 10 West Virginians have had a heart attack or suffer from coronary artery disease -- the highest rate in the country. The state has the third-highest rates of cancer and diabetes. It also has the highest rate of smokers, with 26.8 percent of adults indulging in the habit. It has the second-highest rate of obesity. These problems affect life expectancy, which at 75.2 years in West Virginia is the lowest in the country.

How in the world would any intelligent person believe anything that PMSNBC would say?

Well, perhaps Linda is well out of it, then, as Ohio is ranked the fifth most miserable.
