Detroit has the auto industry and the larger population. MSP has the higher GDP and most fortune 500 companies out of the bunch. As of today, I'll give the edge to MSP.

Columbus wouldn't be known internationally...probably decades and decades away from that.

Pittsburgh IS in the North East. Just barely, and not on the Atlantic Corridor, but it counts.

Minneapolis has some very large companies based there, plus it is the largest city for hundreds of miles around that part of the midwest, thus winning this poll.

BTW, I love Bismarck. Those folks are hearty souls and very friendly. Plus it is the State Capital with some very nice grounds. Obviously this vote is tongue in cheek, but don't rule out Bismarck as a very proud and handsome city up there in those plains, uh huh, you betcha.
