MASSACHUSETTS TOP STATE AT PICKING GOOD PRESIDENTS AND AVOIDING BAD ONES (P-RADAR RANKING) OVER THE PAST CENTURY. Study Compares Voting Records With Presidential Rankings.
Educated Males In Prime Earning Years Most Closely Correlate To Higher Ranking.

Austin, TX - Which U.S. states have the best record of ushering in chart topping presidents while, just as importantly, avoiding presidents that turn out to be duds? The results were surprising, even shocking.

Since 1900, the ten states with the best presidential mojo, what Robert Wellesley has dubbed 'P-RADAR' ["pea ray-dar"] or Presidential RADAR, are (in order, a score of 50% being pure chance): Massachusetts (75.3%), Illinois (71.0%), New Mexico (70.6%), Nevada (70.3%), Virginia (68.1%), Texas (67.7%), Washington (67.7%), Idaho (67.5%), Montana (67.4%), and Rhode Island (67.4%). States with the worst P-RADAR are Vermont (43.6%), Hawaii (45.9%), South Dakota (48.8%), Tennessee (49.4%), Mississippi (50.2%), Alabama (50.2%), Alabama (50.2%), South Carolina (51.0%), Pennsylvania (51.6%), and Delaware (51.6%).

Comparing the P-RADAR state data against a number of census datasets produced some startling correlations, with the strongest being tied to gender -- the higher the ratio of men to women in a state, the better the state was at picking good presidents. The next strongest correlations, in decreasing order, were to states with fewer retirees, more people stashing away money for the future, higher personal education levels, states with a younger populace (not necessarily young people, but a younger skewing population), and higher state economic growth rates.

The presidential ranking used to derive this P-RADAR data was the 2005 Wall Street Journal Presidential Poll -- an ideologically balanced poll of 132 history, law, and political science professors, both liberal and conservative, that also included women, minorities and young professors.
