The Midwest isn't part of the Northeast at all; it's as simple as that.
I just put some Midwestern states (east of the Mississippi River) into the Northeast Region in order for the Northeast to be more competitive. The other Midwestern States (west of the Mississippi River) belongs in the Central US.

Basically, anything east of the Mississippi River and north of the Ohio and Potomac Rivers for the Northeast and anything south of the Mississippi River and south of the Ohio and Potomac Rivers for the Southeast.

The Northeast is home to the Great Lakes, New York, Chicago, Boston/Providence, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore/Washington, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati, Columbus OH, Cleveland, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Springfield IL, and Milwaukee.

The Southeast is home to the Gulf Coast, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond VA, Memphis, Nashville, Hampton Roads, Louisville, Birmingham, Mobile, Jackson MS, Jacksonville, Savannah, Atlanta, Miami, Chattanooga, Tampa Bay, Wilmington NC, Orlando and San Juan.

Which region is more better? Northeast or Southeast?

I couldn't vote for either because I kind of like both regions. Southeast for the weather and beaches and Northeast for New York, Chicago, Great Lakes, etc.

The Pacific Northwest is not a subregion of the Northeast. It is too far west. Anything west of the Mississippi River are not included in the Northeast.

Because states like Illinois and Indiana are geographically in the Northeast just like Mississippi and Alabama are geographically in the Southeast.

Sure, if you simply split the country into 4 and ignore any other types of divides including culture, scenery, demographics, etc.

Exactly my point. The OP seems to strictly go by geography, and even more strictly only going by 4 regions, as if if you were to draw a lowercase 't' across a map of America. That makes some type of divide, but if you go to Wisconsin and tell them they're the Northeast they'll laugh at you and call you nuts. If you go to NJ and tell someone here that WI is the Northeast, same thing.
