Even the folks who voted for him are turning, due to the fact that he hasn't delivered anything he promised (see: the 250,000 new jobs slogan he ran under in the first place), and has only made the state less attractive and more divisive. By the way, I'm an independent voter that couldn't wait to escort the former (Democrat) Governor out the door. Please do not include Wisconsin on your list next time, unless you want to discredit the rest of your post.
Exactly.

I'd argue that the Twin Cities is doing just as well. It seems to be the TCs, Columbus and Indy that are seeing the most resurgence lately, with slightly higher growth rates for C-bus and Indy, and higher gross/overall growth for the TCs (employment, GDP, population, etc.). That's only for the 1+ million metros......Des Moines, Omaha, Madison, and Fargo are all growing at faster rates than any of the aforementioned larger metros -- Des Moines especially.

Very true. Twin Cities, Indianapolis, and Columbus are the hot spots for the 2 million+ metro areas. They're all growing at similar rates as well.
