And most of that low score occurs in the very liberal (Democrat) cities within those Red or Blue states! Why work and get your credit score high when you can sell crack and burglarize homes for a living?


Right. All those liberal, democratic cities in Alabama and Mississippi. LOL

States are made up of people.  By your rationale and these stats, are we to assume that the uneducated and those with lower credit scores in these states voted for President Trump and watch Fox cable news?  The stats don't seem to prove your premise.

 

Credit Scores vary by many things - age, access to credit, credit building skills - so in this respect, those older have a better score than those younger.  Doesn't that go against the stats of who voted for President Trump and who watches Fox Cable News.

Nice diversion with the credit score article. There have been studies on who the Trump voters were and some of the high lights were: Rural, mostly white, uneducated,poor, easy to lead, etc. Yes they do watch FOX News just look at the threads in here for proof of that. Now these are facts neither you nor I can change. In your own State the Gov. you have only won the election by getting rid of non white voters. If he had not done that Stacy would be the Gov.

Aren't you forgetting something? There are larger urban areas in blues states and it's not happening there. Btw, it sounds racist to be blaming all the red states woes on cities......cuz it's not hard to guess who you think lives in those cities. If I'm wrong about this, please clarify.

Don't you love it when members of THE ALL WHITE REPUBLICAN PARTY  think a discussion about Low FICO scores is somehow a form of racism? Unbelievable! Why do they insist upon proving they do not understand what racism is? Maybe they should examine the make up of Trump's all white Republican Party?

I'm LOL! Only in Trump World could they incredibly describe low FICO scores in Trump states as racist. The only thing they proved is they don't understand what racism is.

We have a national crisis, so we must understand that a significant portion of the American electorate aren't very bright, hence, they fall for Fox Fake News. They are now dedicated to supporting a president who's a pathological LIAR that surrounds himself with convicted felons. If that isn't bad enough, he insults those who disagree with him 24/7 and he has no respect for the constitution.

So What ?!? 

 

You can still get an FHA home loan with a minimum downpay of 3.5%

https://www.fha.com/fha_credit_requirements 

FICO Scores

 

 

So where does the credit score really count - 

Rates for credit cards and other consumer lending loans

Property & Casualty Insurance Rates

 

Isn't this just more of the same criticism from you on your state political color comparisons?

Why stop with the state - states are made up of people.

 

These are also the states with the highest AA populations except for NM and they probably have more of another minority group.  These states are also pretty rural in nature which brings its own problems with opportunity, various services and job availability. 

 

On the other hand, when you include cost of living - the dollar goes futherin these states than others.

https://www.politifact.com/california/statements/2017/jan/20/chad-mayes/true-california-has-nations-... 

 

 

Don't you think we need to get away from all types of COLOR comparisons especially when being used to divide.  We have too much division now.

I'm LOL again as there's never any accountability in Trump World. It's always liberals that cause the problems. They are always in denial, just as they are with all the horrible things Comrade Trump d9oes. The facts are very clear, the states where Trump had his largest margin of victories are usually:

  • the most dependent on the federal government (such as WV)
  • have the highest crime rates
  • the lowest credit scores
  • the lowest levels of education (this is very true!)
  • the worst health care systems
