If you think those are MAJOR American cities then i guess you don't see the USA as a major country.

Using your typical "logic," would the Netherlands even count as a country then?

There are 17 million people in the Netherlands

He is right, Tucson, Raleigh, Hartford, Birmingham are not major cities. And San Jose and Riverside are in the shadow of true major cities.

I suppose it depends on how you define "major".

So? What's your point? I wouldn't exclude it for that reason. Your poll is biased.

You should have worded it "Among these choices, what major city has the best weather in the U.S?

I agree Albuquerque has four mild seasons and never too hot or too cold and no humidity.

If you enjoy all four seasons and nothing extreme then Albuquerque is the right choice.

Comparing a country with 321 million people to a country with 17 million people living on land 270 times smaller

Raleigh:
City: Size 369 km2, Population 432.000
MSA Population 1.2 million
CSA Population 2.0 million

Amsterdam:
City: Size 166 km2, Population 825.000
MSA Population 1.6 million
CSA Population 7.1 million
