The pollsters at Gallup are out with a new survey ranking the happiest and unhappiest places to live.
It's the happiest state in the country and for the first time in five years, it wasn't Hawaii. Tops on the list is North Dakota. A new Gallup well--being index ranks it number one and its neighbor South Dakota number two. Gallup researchers based their rankings on how over 176 thousand Americans rated their own health, employment and education. They believe the oil boom in the Dakotas raised their stock. And while you might find your wild and wonderful in West Virginia you'll also find the unhappiest people there. Kentucky was a close second for the biggest buzzkill.
