Is there anything wrong with disliking parts of your home state? Especially in California, where some people make it really difficult to…spread the love.

But wait – what does it mean to ‘hate’ anyways? According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the definition of hate is: “Extreme dislike or antipathy.”

Are there some places in the Golden State that are extremely disliked? You bet. Whether California’s are ‘jelly’ of people who are wealthier than they are, or certain places in California are just that bad, it’s clear – there are lots of places here that people love to secretly hate on.

We did the polling to find out which cities those are. You may or may not be surprised to hear the results.

What hateful criteria did we use?

In order to rank the most hated cities in California, we had to simply ask the people who live there.

Using SurveyMonkey, we polled 3,000 Golden Staters from all over the state. We actually spread the poll out, and attempted to get responses from people in each of 58 counties, and we succeeded. However, some counties were misrepresented, due to the number of people in those counties. So, while we heard back from 27 people in Shasta County, we got back 372 responses from people in Los Angeles County.

What’s interesting is, lots of people in Los Angeles picked Los Angeles as their most hated city.

But when looking at the list, it’s pretty clear – there are places in California that people all over the state love to hate.
