Columbus is poised to bypass Cleveland's metro population around 2018. Are there any other states, where a lesser know metro is bypassing a larger more established metro?

Not that any metro is known outside Montana but Missoula is growing faster than Billings or Great Falls. Missoula is a trendier town in the mountains where Great Falls and Billings are older, more working class? towns farther from the mountains. Missoula is also seeing a large influx of vacation homeownerns and retirees. Billings may be making another push though thanks to the Baaken oil field.

Rochester is poised to surpass Buffalo as the second largest city in New York in about 8-12 years.

Columbus may pass Cleveland, but I think the census should include the Akron portion with Cleveland. It really just seems like one big area up there as the suburbs do connect. I think that's unfair for the Cleveland metro area. It does feel like a bigger metro than 2 million also.

True, but I am sure there are many politicians making sure this does not happen and want to keep them separate. The same could be said about Dayton and Cincinnati.
