North Dakota registers ‘legendary’ satisfaction rate in Gallup poll
Fargo, N.D. (WDAY-TV)- If you live in North Dakota and are reading this article, a recent opinion poll suggests you’re likely more satisfied with your life compared to folks living elsewhere in the United States.

Many felt North Dakota was not a welcoming place for minorities, immigrants or the gay and lesbian community.
