Our take: If the 'forward-looking metrics' Gallup used in a new poll are to be believed, Utah will be the best state to live in the future.
Utah does best in part because it is among the top two best-performing states for low smoking habits, ease of finding clean and safe water, having supervisors who treat workers like a partner rather than a boss, learning something new or interesting on any given day, and perceptions that your city or area are "getting better" rather than "getting worse."
