With the primaries going on, there's a lot of talk about which states best represent America as a whole. So a new study ranked all 50 states according to how "American" they are . . .
Researchers looked at about 30 factors, like age, diversity, income, unemployment, religion, and party affiliation.
And the state that most-represents America as a whole is . . . Illinois.
The top ten are Illinois . . . Florida . . . Michigan . . . Arizona . . . Ohio . . . Pennsylvania . . . Virginia . . . Delaware . . . North Carolina . . . and Indiana.
The LEAST-representative state is Vermont. It's followed by Mississippi, Utah, West Virginia, and Massachusetts.
Only one state that's already voted cracked the top 20. Iowa is 17th, followed by Nevada, 21st . . . South Carolina, 29th . . . and New Hampshire, 43rd.
