Talk:Midwestern United States

From Wikipedia


There seem to be many "opinions" on this talk page but what anyone should be doing is looking to sources. So, I will start a list here, in the hopes that future discussions focus on sources not editor opinion. Please add to the list as you see fit. Alanscottwalker ( talk) 17:08, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

I disagree

Hello, You recently removed by edit to the Midwestern United States page for being "unconstructive". I do not think this is the case. At its current state the article makes it seem like all of Illinois is a Democrat state, while actually very few counties are Democrat. I just feel as an Illinoisian it is my duty to point out that there is more to my home state than just Chicago. ( talk) 22:39, 27 February 2020 (UTC) A concerned Illinoisian

Your duty can best be performed by citing a reliable secondary source that agrees with your belief. Tom (North Shoreman) ( talk) 22:44, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

Other States

This source considers the following states that are not included in the Census Bureau's definition to be Midwestern states:

The Northeastern image includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia, which are not included in the Census Bureau's definition, in lighter shades. Should we add these states in lighter shades? GamerKiller2347 ( talk) 02:46, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

A SurveyMonkey poll is hardly a statistically reliable sampling. And even so, Colorado, Montana, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wyoming appear to have gotten only about 10% agreement to being in the Midwest, with Kentucky at about 20%. So I'd say that this source is not good enough to justify making a change. Indyguy ( talk) 02:59, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Governor Map Error

The map provided of Gubernatorial party affiliation, unfortunately, is inaccurate; it shows Kansas as having a Republican governor but the current governor is a Democrat. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk) 19:23, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
