Iowa voted #1 in 2018 US News state rankings...Louisiana 50th
quote:

Iowa may be better known for its corn, caucuses and creative writing programs, but the Hawkeye state also leads the nation in efforts to bring ultra-fast internet access to every city block and every rural acre.

Iowa's No. 1 rankings in the infrastructure category and the broadband access metric within that came as a "pleasant surprise" to David Daack, a broadband consultant for Connected Nation, which does business in the state as Connect Iowa. Previous data reports have shown Iowa more in the middle of the pack.

Combine those No. 1s with Iowa's Top 10 rankings in health care (No. 3), opportunity (No. 4), education (No. 5) and quality of life (No. 9), and the state becomes "first in the nation" not only in terms of its presidential caucuses, but also when describing Iowa's overall placement in the U.S. News & World Report's Best States rankings.

We were always 48 or 49 in these type of surveys before JBE. Now even Mississippi is better than us.

3 of the states are among the most religious, reddest in the country. Try again.

The top ten list is actually remarkably bipartisan. 4 red states, 4 blue states, 2 purple states
