Poll: Midwesterners are depressed, hate their jobs

Indiana is among one of the saddest states in the nation, according to a recent Gallup poll.

The poll found much of the Midwest qualifies as a ‘sadness belt’ because residents are depressed, obese and hate their jobs.

Indiana came in 42nd out of 50, down four spots from 2011.

Gallup looked at six categories to determine sadness. Things like life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and basic access were all considered.

West Virginia is the saddest state in the Union, the poll revealed.

Hawaii came out on top as the least sad state.

    No wonder unemployment is at an all time high. These Obamacrats can just live off the government and not work. Now they have free healthcare, free Obamaphones and increased entitlements. Lazy gets you a pass from the guv'ment.

    Sorry, but my bullsheet detector is going off here.

    Let's see all of the poll data: Who was sampled, poll questions, etc.

    This "poll" looks oddly similar to election maps. lol

    A man needs to have a good balance between the job he is doing, the people he is working for, and the money he is being paid. Any imbalance creates dissatisfaction.

    This couldn't be more hilarious. I love Indiana, I love my job, and I'm not obese. I do not see many obese people here. When I lived in Iowa, which apparently is green and happy, the people there were more depressed and annoyed with their work and figures then people are here.

    I'd like to see the poll stats on this…who did they ask…the unemployed population???

    Gallop is corrupt anyways…I never take something they publish seriously.
