How Patriotic Is Colorado?

These last couple of years have been a bit weird for many reasons and in some cases, it's made people feel less patriotic than they had felt prior to the pandemic. Be it the rise in violence, racism, employment opportunities, and more. We've been called the "greatest country in the world" but how do people really feel right now? Has all of the above made Colorado less patriotic than we've been in the past?

Where Does Colorado Rank For In Most Patriotic States?

Our pals at WalletHub put together some comparisons from state to state and came up with a ranking from number 50 being the lowest to 1 which is the highest. Rankings were based on various factors like how many military enlistees or veterans we have in our state, how many voted in the presidential last election, and more. In that ranking, where exactly did Colorado land?

We're proud to say that Colorado is pretty patriotic as we landed at lucky (or unlucky) number 13 with an overall score of 52.05.The top 3 most patriotic states in the country according to the map from WalletHub above was Virginia at number three with a score of 58.97, Montana at number two with a score of 61.46, and Alaska takes the gold medal on this one with a score of 65.57, making it the most patriotic state in the U.S. Pretty surprising if you ask us but we know how much Colorado loves our Red, White & Blue. Does this surprise you also?
