People in Colorado love Colorado, well, most people.

Sixty-five percent of Colorado residents said that their state was the best or one of the best possible places to live, according to a Gallup poll via USA Today.

Only 65 percent? Or is it, 65 percent! Colorado is ranked ninth.

Compared to other states, 65 percent is pretty good. Only the people of Alaska, Utah, Texas, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, New Hampshire and Hawaii love their state more.

So what does this mean? People in these states have more pride, I guess.

It must be tough to call Rhode Island home, with only 18 percent of residents liking it. Our neighbor New Mexico has it rough too, with only 28 percent.

Sixty-five percent is pretty good, like I said. Not sure what the other 35 percent are thinking or why they don’t think Colorado is one of the best places to live.

Your thoughts?
