Well, one betting website decided to (somewhat) scientifically piece together a “rooting interest” map that displays exactly which U.S. states will be cheering for King Kong and which will be going for Godzilla.

The research conducted by BetOnline.ag was performed over the past month, and the team analyzed geotagged Twitter data for more than 300,000 tweets that included relevant hashtags such as #TeamKong and #TeamGodzilla.

Here is the map:

The data shows a lopsided love for Godzilla with exactly 82.0% of America rooting for the dragon-esque monster.

Here's the state-by-state breakdown:

Godzilla - 41 states (Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Illinois, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, North Carolina, New York, Utah, Kentucky, Georgia, New Jersey, Louisiana, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, Hawaii, Connecticut, Minnesota, Washington, Maryland, Indiana, Wisconsin, California, Colorado)
