Welcome to the very first FiveThirtyEight Debate Club! While we’re all still working remotely, we figured now would be the perfect moment to try to divide the office even further. With that in mind, various members of our staff will be holding debates on a range of subjects.
On this first episode, we debate an oft-argued topic here at FiveThirtyEight: What is the best state in the U.S. — or, more specifically, if you could live in only one state in America and never leave, which one would it be, and why?
Watch the video above to find out our favorite states, and be sure to tell us yours on YouTube or Twitter.
And for future episodes, let us know if you have a debate topic you’d like us to take on.
