Ever wonder where the best place to survive a zombie apocalypse is? New research has the answer. After the success of HBO’s hit “The Last of Us,” insurance marketplace Insuranks surveyed a thousand U.S. adults about zombies and they also analyzed over a thousand Google searches to figure out where each state lands on zombie apocalypse preparedness.
The research reveals:
- More than one in 10 Americans believe a zombie apocalypse is going to happen one day.
- More than half of respondents who think it’s inevitable think it will happen in the next 30 years.
- As a result, nearly a quarter of those polled don’t think it’s weird or unusual to prepare for the event and more than 10% of people already have food stockpiled for that emergency.
- Just over half (53%) believe they know how to kill a zombie and 66% admit they would kill a loved one who turned into a zombie.
- If a zombie apocalypse does happen, it has to start somewhere and people think that would most likely be California, which happens to be the state least prepared for the event.
- As for the state most ready to take on the walking dead, that would be Wyoming, according to the survey.
- But any state that’s not heavily populated and has a lot of open spaces where you could live off the land, stockpile weapons and avoid other people would be good.
- Alaska is named the second best place for dodging zombies, followed by Vermont, North Dakota and South Dakota.
- Besides California, Texas, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania are the states least prepared to defend themselves against the living dead.
- Respondents rank “The Walking Dead” as the most accurate zombie portrayal in a show or movie, followed by “28 Days Later” and “World War Z.”
