[Ed. – These rankings are uniformly silly, although I do wonder how many would agree with this one.  That wondered, note that “veterans per capita” is probably not about how many vets come from a state; it’s about how many decided to live there.  Who retires to New Jersey?  Not nearly as many vets as retire to Florida, the Carolinas, Texas, and Arizona.  Sorry about the feature image.  (It may have some explanatory value.)]

A new study ranked New Jersey the worst patriotic state in America. WalletHub released its 2020’s Most Patriotic States in America survey on Monday morning.

WalletHub used 13 categories to break down which states showed the most patriotism including, the state’s military enlistees, the number of adults who voted in 2016 and volunteer rate.

New Jersey came in No. 50 for overall patriotism and No. 49 in veterans per capita.
