USA

It's hard to believe, but Texas has been named the second 'most hated' state in the U.S.

Turn out Texas has a lot of haters out there.

Here's a ranking I never thought we'd be part of.

Texas has been voted the second most hated state in America, as reported by Alex Daniel with the lifestyle website Best Life, coming in only behind California. (California I can almost understand, but Texas? Really?!?)

To determine which states were the most hated, Daniel reported that Best Life used the U.S. Census Bureau to compare the population increase or decrease in each state to the national average of 0.6 percent; analyzed a Gallup poll of which citizens felt the most pride in their home states; and factored in numbers from amateur researcher Matt Shirley, who polled his 320,000 Instagram followers to determine which state they hate the most.

This may not come as a surprise, but Alaska, California, New Mexico and Oklahoma all share a deep hatred for the Lone Star State. (I expected more from you, Oklahoma).

In an effort to figure out what it is that makes everyone hate us so much, I did a little digging. A 2013 survey conducted by Business Insider found that Texas was the No. 1 most-hated state back then, and their only explanation was "That's what you get, Texas, for always pulling the 'We can leave America whenever we feel like it' card."

So basically, everyone has always hated us 'cause they ain't us. Go figure.
