Report: CT Last in Contintental U.S. on “American Dream Index”

According to a report from Axios, Connecticut ranks last in the continental U.S. – and #48 out of 50 overall – on Forbes' "American Dream Index."

A new report from Axios‘ Mike Allen reveals that Connecticut is last in the continental U.S. on a new Forbes ranking called “The American Dream Index.”

Connecticut ranks 48th out of 50 in Forbes‘ debut rankings, which Allen says are pulled from “seven indicators of economic health ‘to track on a state-by-state monthly basis whether President Trump is Making America Great.'”

At top of the “American Dream Index” are Nevada, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, and Georgia, in that order. The worst two states are Alaska (#50) and Hawaii (#49). Connecticut (#48) is last in the continental U.S., followed by Illinois (#47) and Kansas (#46).
