Survey: Top 10 Business States All Led by GOP Governors

Survey: Top 10 Business States All Led by GOP Governors

Chief Executive magazine’s ninth annual “Best and Worst States for Business” survey finds that the ten best states for business are all led by Republican governors.  

According to the survey of 736 CEOs, the ten best states for business are:

  1. Texas

  2. Florida

  3. North Carolina

  4. Tennessee

  5. Indiana

  6. Arizona

  7. Virginia

  8. South Carolina

  9. Nevada

  10. Georgia

The worst state for business was California. Only three of the bottom ten states--New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania--are led by Republican governors.

The survey asked business executives to grade states on factors such as taxation, regulation, workforce quality, and living environment. 


If Obama wanted to improve the national job situation, it seems like he would be interested in this survey.  He doesn't care about more jobs... he needs an under class of people.  That's what Democrats are all about... they need the poor and low information voters.  It's the only way they can stay in power.


Unfortunately, they have accomplished their goal of having enough people dependent on the government to were they will always vote Democrats. A good way to do that is to keep the economy stagnant......don't create more jobs.

    Interesting …
    seems to be the most friendly to business, the state has to be among the lowest in population density. I suppose they have a lot of empty space to put businesses.

      Less population means more cows. More cows mean more business. Makes more sense than population density. Cause maybe a denser population means a longer established network of business’ and labor and support and government, that do not need to grow and will actually stifle any attempts to grow since the population is already supporting all it can handle due to availability of…everything. Any questions…look at New York City or New Jersey.

      The statistic has no meaning. That a place is friendlier than another to business doesn’t mean it actually produces more business than another place. Giving tax breaks to get a business into the locale doesn’t translate into prosperity for the ares. Less regulation can mean the environment becomes worse. There are many factors to consider other than ‘friendliness.’
