Places like ND, SD, KS, etc, are definitely Midwestern in look and feel compared to the mountain west.

And as the map above shows, teh Mountain West also has majoritarian German ancestry.

So do parts of Texas.

Damn Krauts are allover the place.


And I'm about 25% German.

also, all this "if you remove st. louis and kansas city..." bull$hit is a cop-out. you can't remove st. louis and kansas city. 2/3 of the state's population live in the stl and kc areas. my home state of pennsylvania is often called "philadelphia and pittsburgh with alabama in between." the rural/urban dichotomy is not a missouri phenomenon.

again, when you make statements like this...



...post your sources.
Missouri QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau


A continuous block of counties south of I-70 that have poverty rates in excess of 18%. This DOES NOT OCCUR in the Midwest at all within such a large geographic area. Poverty is fairly concentrated in the Ohio Valley and Appalachian Ohio in a few select counties. First Nations Reservations in the northwoods also have above average poverty. I don't count the west river areas of the Dakotas as being part of the Midwest, but the West. Those reservations have severe poverty issues as most are aware.

Then it means nothing in proving Missouri has no/little Southern cultural influence.
