The ratings do change gradually over time but only gradually.
The table I got the list above from was on the website.   They also have an info graphic that shows the history of upgrades and downgrades for each state from 2001 to 2011.

The TaxFoundation website put together a nice graphical map showing the ratings by state.

The actual data is from Standard & Poor and they have specifics for each state buried among all the municipalities of each state on their website. BUT.. you may need to register and log in to get to full reports.
