Is the West more connected to the Midwest and Northeast than it is to the South, or is it a mix of both? Or is it a completely different class altogether?

The West is extensions of the South and North and it's a category of it's own, I really couldn't pick.

The West is the West. The North vs. South divide fades out by the time you get to this side of the country. We don't have more in common with the North or the South. This is a separate geographical region altogether.

The west's rise was mostly after the Civil War, the north/south paradigm does not apply.

The west is precisely the following:

West = (Northeast - (Southeast + Pacific Northwest)) / Southwest + a sprinkle of Alaska - 2

As a native Californian, I've never felt like a "northerner" or "southerner".

I've always thought of myself as a "West Coast guy"...

Maybe the question should be asked of Southerners: do you consider people in the West to be Yankees?

The northwest is the north of the west and the southwest is the south of the west and the southeast is the south of the east and the northeast is the north of the east and the midwest is the west of the east and the north is the south of south and the south is the north of north and the west is the east of east and the east is the west of west. And the north south is your latitude position and the east west is your longitude position and the north south east west is your exact location and so is the northeast southwest southeast northwest and so on...

The Pacific Northwest, even the rural parts seem to have far more in common with the north than the south. Think the same is true with the Bay Area.
