Tongue in cheek, but still, if the automobile industry has an epicenter in North America, it is the Detroit metro area and Michigan.

So that's not okay in California, but perfectly fine in other states where the reverse is true? Pssst, your standard-issue GOP hypocrisy is showing!

It is fine for most states. Saying that West Virginia is a very conservative state would also be correct.
And I'm not even a conservative, I'm not sure what makes you think that

WV really isn't that conservative if it has a Democrat senator.

The guy you are responding to thinks anybody who doesn't have his political views is 'foaming at the mouth'.

And DPRK means Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Calling it something doesn't make it so. The nazis sure as hell weren't liberal.

I didn't say they were liberal.

I said they weren't conservatives and you can't provide any rational basis to call them that.

Pro life and pro Israel conservatives are Nazis.....how does that logic work.

OK, they were neither liberal nor conservative.

At the moment, the political thrust of Americans who call themselves conservatives is to block what American liberals call social progress.

Nazis are a self-entitled demographic majority imposing a zealous dictatorial will over a helpless minority, as I believe characterizes Wisconsin

Joe Manchin is the most conservative Democrat in the Senate. And he is the only Democrat who can win in present day West Virginia

It is similar to or practically in the Midwest: Although Pennsylvania borders Ohio, the only part of Pennsylvania that feels remotely Midwestern is the Erie region. What makes Pennsylvania distinct from the rest of the Northeast is that a majority of its land mass lies within cultural Appalachia. In fact, only West Virginia has a higher percentage (100%) of its land mass contained within Appalachia than Pennsylvania. In the Northeast, New York has the Southern Tier, and that’s it. The rest of the Northeast (unless you count Maryland) has no land mass within Appalachia.

Pennsyltucky: There is an ongoing belief that everything between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh is practically Kentucky. Although much of the land mass is indeed in Appalachia, there are some important distinctions between Pennsylvanian Appalachia and Southern Appalachia. Firstly, the influence of Anabaptists, Lutherans, and Quakers throughout much of the state is distinct from anything in the South. Rural and small town Pennsylvania, especially around South Central Pennsylvania, also has its own cuisine, dialect, architecture, etc., that make it distinct from any Southern Appalachian state.

Backwardness: It is true that Pennsylvania had a difficult time with de-industrialization and the fall of coal. There are many small towns that are still really struggling to move forward. It is also true that we are a highly historic state that celebrates much of its history. However, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, South Central (Harrisburg-Lancaster-York area), and the Lehigh Valley are all areas with much prosperity and forward moving economies.

Many of the other “stereotypes” however bear some truth. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia sports fans are both quite spirited and even ravenous. We are truly the “Keystone State” connecting the Northeast, South and Midwest, while remaining decidedly Northeastern. The divide between our rural and urban inhabitants is quite pronounced (I say morseso than much of the country), particularly because we are a (blue-leaning) swing state with a very strong distinction in demographic between our urban metros and rural areas. We do have a funky state cuisine like red pickled eggs and scrapple.
I've never thought of PA as being remotely Midwest. If anything, I think Ohio should be placed with the northeast.
