I definitely consider Ohio and Indiana the lower midwest with Minnesota and Wisconsin being clearly part of the upper midwest.

Ohio is more classic midwest. I think Minnesota, Michigib WI, and North Dakota as upper Midwest. Anything north of i-90 is what I classify as upper midwest.

California Least: 80% of the City of Los Angeles which has turned into a broken, degenerated, crime infested, filthy, resource depleted, anonymous, uncaring, hopelessly diverse, detrimentally multicultural, graffiti sprayed, ugly, littered, education averse, 3rd world jungle.

I-90 passes through Chicago. So that makes Chicago the border between Upper Midwest and Lower Midwest. And it kind of is; it has elements of both. For example, cheese curds (Upper) and corn on the cob (Lower) are equally popular in Chicago. Upper Midwest is held in slightly higher regard by Chicagoans, it seems, except for one element of it: the Packers.

Indiana

Most like the state: Anywhere rural

Least like the state: Bloomington (it's a liberal bubble in a conservative area of the state).

I'd add Northwest Indiana to "least like the state". That part is basically an extension of Chicago; it even has a commuter railroad (South Shore Line/NICTD) going there. It's also much more industrial than the rest of the state.

I'd narrow that to the UP of Michigan. The Lower Peninsula has no significant Scandivanian heritage and is more Methodist (like the lower Midwest) than Catholic/Lutheran. It has more industry and farmland and less undeveloped forest. It's more similar to Ohio or Illinois than to the UP.

You'd have to cut Lower MI in half from Grand Rapids to Bay City. Anything north of that is very much like the rest of WI, and MN.
