This is cool: @dhmontgomery did an internet survey asking 12,000 people to say if they lived in the Midwest based on their zip code, & these are the results  https://www.citylab.com/life/2019/08/where-is-the-midwest-map-geography-great-lakes-rust-belt/597082/ 

.@FiveThirtyEight did something similar back in 2014  https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/what-states-are-in-the-midwest/ 

Here's how I defined the "Midwest" when I created this spreadsheet with historical presidential election results for every state & region going back to 1828. But that's because I only used 4 regions, otherwise the 5 "Great Plains" states could be their own  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/11/25/1601042/-Nerd-Alert-This-spreadsheet-contains-every-presidential-election-by-state-from-1828-to-2016 

Pretty much sums up what's been going on in my mentions the last few hours 😅
