There are many reasons why people move to L.A.  Fame, fortune, and of course the weather, just to name a few.  And although there are many who make the transition to L.A., according to a new poll, there are plenty who have no desire to do so.

The “American Cities Favorability Poll” was conducted April 12th-15th by Public Policy Polling based in Raleigh, N.C.  A total of 900 Americans were asked a series of questions, 21 of them focusing on some major cities in the U.S.

The question “Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Los Angeles?” came back with 33% favorable, 40% unfavorable, and 27% were unsure.

Only one other city in the U.S. did worse than L.A., Detroit.

The two top ranking cities in the U.S. are both in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle being the winner with 57% favorable and only 14% unfavorable, followed by Portland with 52% favorable and 12% unfavorable.

This same company conducted a poll last month which came back with California being the least popular state in the U.S.

Do you agree with the results of the poll??
