1)Which has better year-round weather?
- Cincinnati, since I like 3 to 4 seasons much better than 1 and a half seasons in Dallas.


2)Which has friendlier people?
- Super subjective (Ok so is the weather but even so.....) The people in Dallas I have met were friendly.

3)Which has less traffic?
- Cincinnati.

4)Which has the better economy?
- Dallas

5)Which has a lower cost of living?
- Cincinnati I think.

Winner - Cincinnati.
However I would still most of the time choose Dallas. Although I miss 4 seasons. I really really do, never thought I would, not that much anyways.....

Cincinnati will get some pity votes, though.
J.R. Ewing would think this is a ridiculous comparison too. Haha.

Dallas because it's larger and has a brighter future and attracts events like the Superbowl. Cincinnati has an excellent Riverfront though

Any person (even fictional) with a modicum of sense would think so as well, and this despite your efforts to design the criteria to benefit Cincinnati (Less Traffic!). Dallas is a juggernaut; Cincinnati is simply sputtering along. During my numerous visits to Cincinnati over the years I really tried to uncover the city's charms, but in the end I think I was simply Waiting for Godot.

This is weird comparison because no one ever thinks of these cities together. It's like asking if you prefer Nepal or Bolivia, it's just out of no where.

Sorry, but some people aren't as blindly in awe of Dallas as you might believe. The oppressive summer heat, lack of real winter, the horrible traffic, the insane sprawl, the "Texas is #1" mentality, Texas politics, the pancake flat topography, does NOT trump "booming ecenomy". I can find just as good of a job in Cincinnati as Dallas and live cheaper.

Will the loser of this poll then take on Syracuse, NY? (Or perhaps the winner...?)

You could somewhat avoid the "Texas is #1 mentality" in Dallas. There's just too many transplants from all over to have that effect. The politics on the local level are the opposite of the state's. Recently, the Governor wouldn't meet with Dallas's mayor in addition to the ones from other major cities. He has an ax to grind with local laws. But at a macro level, yes. The state politics are worse than Ohio's.
