Meh, those state's have some the lowest Cost of Livings in the US as well. So its all relative.

Someone making $40k in Mississippi pretty damn close to someone making $50-60k in Massachusetts.
These states are largely rural, which is a better indicator of poverty than "redness".
I do not know that North Carolina can be considered a red state. One US senator is Democrat and one is Republican and our governor is a Democrat.

The same mistakes some conservatives make when they do this kind of stupid crap. First and most obviously, can you show that the reason they are poor is because they are red states? If not, then what is your point?

They are poor because they're "red"?
They're "red" because they're poor?
All poor people are "red"?
All "red" people are poor?
What IS your point?
