There are plenty of rude people in this country. But are they living next door to you . . . or, like, 2,000 miles away?

A new survey asked if people in their state are usually ruder or more polite than most Americans.

Overall, 26% say the people in their state are more polite . . . 19% say they’re ruder . . . and 46% say they’re about the same.

There are definitely some geographic differences at play here.

Only 16% of people in the Northeast say people in their state are more polite . . . compared to 32% of people in the South and 27% in the Midwest.
