Over Half Of The US Belongs To This Hogwarts House, According To A Viral Harry Potter Map

If you clicked into this article, then you likely have a strong allegiance to one of the four Hogwarts houses. Whether it's the bravery of Gryffindor, intelligence of Ravenclaw, empathy of Hufflepuff, or ambition of Slytherin, there's something in you that draws you closer to the colors. Well, the same goes for the state in America too. USDish did a poll to find out what states correlate to the Hogwarts houses, and the results will definitely shock you.

America is a melting pot, which makes it hard to boil down exactly who makes up the states. Until now, that is. USDish took the task of the sorting hat and completely ran with it. The company did some extensive research to figure out, by personality and person, which states belonged to the Hogwarts houses. Naturally, there was a little of everything in the United States. The ultimate finding was that there were a whole lot of one particular house residing in the country though.

Be warned, the findings might be hard to process. 

Slytherin house makes up over half the country

The Wizarding World might not be based in the United States, but that doesn't stop people in the country from obsessing over it. USDish looked at Google Trends to see which houses were Googled the most in each state and polled 1,000 people that had been sorted into houses through the Wizarding World quiz to find out which states landed in which houses.

Believe it or not, 27 states came out as Slytherin. That means that the house makes up over half the country, making the United States predominately of the Parsletongue-speaking home. Let's be honest, the country does scream Slytherin. The United States broke away from it's ole-timey counterpoint to create their own government and big businesses, so let's not pretend that Gryffindor behavior.

While Slytherin typically gets a bad rep for, you know, housing Voldemort and pledging their allegiance to the wrong side of history, there are plenty of up-sides to being in the house. "Slytherins are hardworking and desire success," MuggleNet explains. "They are known to achieve great things (even if not always good things). They are the kind of people who make you want to be better just by being around them."

If that doesn't sound like America, then we don't know what does.

Gryffindor ranked last on America's list

We're all a mix of good and bad, which might have you thinking that Gryffindor was a close second in the United States. Well, think again. It turns out that there were only three states landed in Gryffindor — Utah, Michigan, and Connecticut (via USDish). That makes the house of the great Harry Potter last on the list, despite there being immense pride. "Gryffindor was by far the Hogwarts House people were most proud of, either individually or by state," USDish states. 

According to USDish that there were actually more Hufflepuff states than there were Gryffindor. Let that sink in for a second. The company's poll found that the states Idaho, Wyoming, Kansas, Arkansas, and Vermont all resonate with the badger, which is the least-liked House, according to MuggleNet.

In fact, all the states even agreed with the houses they were sorted into. "Americans overall agreed with the Hogwarts House Google Trends sorted their state into," USDish states. "Even Hufflepuff — all five states (Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Vermont, and Wyoming) — concurred that their people belonged in arguably the least popular house in Harry Potter lore."

The sorting hat might not have been available, but it looks like USDish did a solid job with the poll.
