I would also agree with that. Looks almost exactly what my mental picture is of what is included when somebody says "Midwest."

I agree with the border but I would have used a different color, maybe taupe, whatever that is.

I disagree with the peripheral areas. Southern Indiana, southern Ohio, and the western Plains shaded areas have very little in common with the Midwest. Even cities like Topeka, Wichita, and Bismarck are on the periphery of the Midwest as well as Canton or Cincinnati.

Well, this is the first I've heard that the Midwest extends clear into north central Montana, much less have a bunch of people nodding their head saying "yep."

I really do wonder why people get such a kick out of drawing Midwestern boundaries. Really? Is that really what interests you?

I agree, the people in Colorado and Montana would scoff at any part of thier states being called midwest. Even the high plains portions of those states are not midwest.
