Hawaii second most popular state

Hawaii has been ranked as the second most popular state in which Americans would like to live, and Honolulu came in as the eighth most popular city, according to results from the latest Harris Poll released today. The company surveyed over 3,600 U.S. adults in early August and asked where they would choose to live if they could live in any city or state besides their own. California retained the top spot, but Hawaii leapfrogged over Florida to take second place. North Carolina and Texas rounded out the top five. When the question focused on cities, Honolulu ranked sixth, ahead of Denver and Atlanta but behind Las Vegas, improving from eighth place in last year’s poll. New York City has come in first every year since 1999. Hawaii has ranked in the top ten for nearly a decade; Honolulu only broke into the top ten in 2003.
