The state that brought you Teddy Kennedy is the nation's most Democratic and Dick Cheney's home state is the most Republican.

Those are the findings of research released by Gallup this week measuring the political leanings of the residents in all 50 states, which found that Wyomingites are collectively redder than any other state's residents while Massachusettsans are bluest. Utah comes in as the runner up in Republican leanings while Maryland claims the number two spot on the Democratic side.

The survey also found that the reddest states shine just a little bit brighter than the blue ones, with Wyoming and Utah having 35.5-point and 33.1-point advantages respectively for the GOP. The Bay State and the Old Line State, by comparison, only lean Democratic by 21.8 points and 20.9 points respectively.

Louisiana and Nevada tie for least partisan, with each state leaning only half a percentage point toward one party over the other, the Silver State blue and the Bayou State red.

Which way does your state lean? Check out our gallery above to find out.
