Great quiz! I wouldn't be surprised if people come on the quiz and say California is on top because of those "darn democrats" even though it literally has the most people out of any state

the main take I got from the quiz is that states with bigger populations have greater number of homicides. I wonder how the top would look like if it was per capita instead

Yeah, raw numbers don't give a great picture. California is at the top, but it has only about 150% of Florida's murders despite having about 200% of Florida's population. Meanwhile, New York has 50% of Florida's murders, despite having almost the same population as Florida.

Homicide rate would be more interesting -- you can get most of these by just guessing the most populous states.

I'd also suggest cutting the time a bit. There's currently enough to guess almost every state.
