Just about all of America wants the New England Patriots to lose Super Bowl LII—at least according to a recent analysis of geotags on Twitter.

Tweets favoring the Philadelphia Eagles comprise the majority of geotagged messages sent through the social-media site in every state but Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and (wait for it) North Dakota.

The geotags of Twitter users in D.C. also appear to show the nation’s capital leaning green. Check out the map below.

What’s up with Vermont and Connecticut, by the way? New England much?
