I believe Chicago is in the midwest also. And when I think of midwest cities KC is probably not even top 5

Chicago is not really Midwestern compared to other Midwest cities. Too much East Coast influence.

I don't know. To me these are main midwest cities:

Chicago
Cleveland
Cincinnati
Columbus
Indianapolis
Detroit
Milwaukee
Twin Cities
St Louis
KC

May be missing a few but ones I could think of top of my head

Perhaps, but those cities are too eastern (too much East Coast influence). KC has more of an East and West blend, which is why I think it's representative of the Midwest as a whole.

Then it and St Louis would be the only cities in the midwest by your definition. Denver is west

Yep, Denver's not really Midwestern. And yes, I would say St. Louis and KC are probably tied although STL has way more crime than most Midwestern cities. I didn't say the other cities aren't Midwestern, but they aren't representative of the entire Midwest as much as KC is.
