South Carolina and its citizens loves America, apparently more than any other state in the nation.
The real estate research blog Movoto put together a list of the most patriotic states in the United States, and the Palmetto State ranks at the top.
The rankings were based on the number of National Historic Landmarks per capita, veterans per capita, funding for veterans, percentage of residents who voted in the last presidential election, those who Google search the category “American flags” and people who list the good ol’ USA as a Facebook interest.
South Carolina is home to more than 75 National Historic Landmarks, including the historic Lancaster County Courthouse and Lancaster County Jail.
According to Movoto data, it was our penchant for Googling “American flags” that pushed us to the top. The data was compiled from the 2012 census, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Google Trends, Facebook and Wikipedia.
