Most Gullible States

With all of that said, which state is the most gullible state in the nation? Well, that honor goes to good 'ol Mississippi. Following the Magnolia State in gullibility are Arkansas, North Carolina, Maine, and Iowa.

What about Michigan? The Mitten falls into the "A Little Gullible" category on the list coming in at #14 in the nation. What makes the news even worse is that Michigan is more gullible than Ohio. Only by a hair, but it still hurts. Ohio ranked #15 on the list.
