395

With Fourth of July celebrations likely to be more subdued than usual this year due to COVID-19, and people protesting police brutality all across the U.S., the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Most Patriotic States in America.

To determine where Americans have the most red, white and blue pride, the site compared the 50 states across 13 key indicators of patriotism. Our data set ranges from the state’s military enlistees and veterans to the share of adults who voted in the 2016 presidential election to AmeriCorps volunteers per capita. Below are some additional highlights from the report.

South Carolina was ranked #10 and North Carolina was ranked #21 on the list.
