I took the quiz with highest life expectancy and I overlooked Oklahoma, which I guessed for the other quiz. 9/10

Updated with latest figures, there's now a tie for 10th place, meaning this is technically "Top 11" not "Top 10", but don't complain :)

We're not really a swing state anymore. The GOP has been in firm control of the state for awhile.

The last three polls for the 2020 election in Ohio are Trump +3, Biden +2, and Biden +1 ... and in the last 8 presidential elections Ohio has gone red, blue, blue, red, red, blue, blue, red... seems pretty swingy

Those life expectancies still aren’t that bad. Over 70 years old is pretty good.

Or the fact that they fry everything, and drink sweet tea that is basically syrup... (It's delicious, but not exactly a healthy diet.)

Before any one lumps the Republicans all together, consider that that southern states never fully recovered from the Civil War and are still fairly poor. Only Ohio surprised me here.
