The redder the state, the shorter your life

It's not an absolute correlation, and contains a few exceptions,  but studies seem to show that people who live in blue states as a rule of thumb live longer than people in red states.

It's not just a matter of poverty, either. Vermont, one of our poorer states, is blue and and yet its citizens have a longer life expectancy than far wealthier Texas.

I'll leave it to you to ponder why.
