Do you think you'd totally survive if we had a zombie apocalypse? Think again if you live in the Land of Lincoln. Illinois would be one of the most dangerous states to be if we had one. 

Zombie apocalypse, it's hard to spell and hard for me to really understand, we talk about it like it's a think that might really happen, but is that true?

Now if you're looking for a great place to live when zombies attack? That's Vermont, which took the top spot on the list, followed by Maine, Louisiana, Wyoming and New Hampshire.

Florida also made the top test list for best places to live during a zombie apocalypse, but I'm pretty sure I still wouldn't want to move there.
