Probably Alaska/Hawaii, mostly just the lower 48 are mentioned here.

I'd say the Great Plains and Alaska/Hawaii. It's mostly about the Sunbelt/West Coast, Rust Belt and BosWash.

In what universe are Ohio and Illinois Upper Midwestern states? They border Southern states, for crying out loud.

Uh, since most of their population is squarely in the "North", they're Northern too. Even in Ohio, NE OH has half the state's population alone, so about 50% of the state population lives there, and that doesn't include Toledo and points in-between, like Sandusky. I know, Cairo, IL is a different world than Duluth, MN, but when we think of regions and the states that make them up it seems to always come down to where the major population centers are (and yes, I know Columbus, Dayton and Cincy are not really that "Northern", despite what some may say).

Ohio also has a border with Canada.
