Seeing as Midwesterners made up a large number of migrants during the growth of both cities. Which city has a stronger Midwestern influence?

I'd say the LA area. Seems like to me most of the Bay Area's Midwestern influence is in the more inland parts of the metro area, while in Los Angeles it is all over.

The Los Angeles Area. The city has segergation and suburbanized in the 60's and is known for having everything from very liberal to the most conserative

For Minnesotans, I think it's SF, otherwise I'd say LA.

Not sure that the bolded is so different in the Bay Area though. There tends to be more conservatives in the LA area, that is true.

From what I recall, LA's history and growth is more tied to migrants from the Midwest than the Bay Area.

From what I remember in thier histories. San Francisco had a larger number of Catholic Whites compared to Los Angeles. Most Whites in San Fran in the early 00's were of Irish and Italian ancestry.

For sure Southern California. Lots of people in Orange County and San Diego moved here from places like Minnesota and other areas around there. More conservative too.

Yep. LA (walk through Hollywood and see all the cornfed young'ns that look like runaways and cowpunks)
Orange County has a very large population of midwesterners that have succeeded.
