Polls like this dont matter at all, this is a perfect example of a bias poll, its just the amount of boosters in your city on city data

for me population is one of the reasons, but not the main one.

I simply voted for Detroit because its name is more known world wide than any other city in the list, it will always be known as the Motor City and where the automobile industry first started. It is more diverse than any other city in the list, example Arabs, Greeks, Polish, Irish, Italian, and Hispanic. Rich in history, culture, and great food, lots of museums, great architecture, and my favorite music started in Detroit!

This summed it up for me. The twin cities however would be a close 3rd. Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis are by far the top 3 cities in the Midwest.

I get that this is a forum, so all of the responses are in text and lack emotion, tone, and facial expression. But, I get tired of how often people don't realize when people are joking, being sarcastic or kidding around. If they really voted Wichita because they really thought that it should be second, they, A, would have not commented about it, or B, commented with actual reasons. It was obvious that the post was intended to be percieved jokingly, like "I'm gonna be a rebel and vote the one that's obviously last". No offense, but HE WAS KIDDING.

Yeah, I was kidding - and I'm Scottish so it's not like I've been to any of those places.

Wichita because a friend on another forum absolutely can't stand the place - despite liking the rest of Kansas.

Looks like the consensus is the Twin Cities & Detroit.

I think Detroit still wins-out in Population, but for long-term economic health & pop growth, the Twin Cities is the Place to Be.
