What a skewed poll. Columbus? There's nothing "rust belt" about Columbus.

Poll is closed, but I think I'm going to vote for Pittsburgh. Even though it technically counts, I really don't consider Chicago to be a Rustbelt city anymore.

That logic is moronic. Chicago is definately the WORST city in the midwest. No city has a worse combination of congestion, corruption, crazy taxes, lack of freedoms like that cesspool Chicago.

LOL...I vote for Pittsburgh and Scranton.....IMHO...Colombus, Ohio does not fit the criteria for a typical "rust-belt" city or it too would get my vote.
