I don't know if the Midwest has a clear #2... maybe in the old days it was Detroit but its influence seems to have waned as its economic prowess declined.

I would say that Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, the Twin Cities, and St. Louis would make a solid "Tier 2" of cities with significant metro populations (over 2 million) that are important to the Midwest.

Detroit still has a pretty solid lead despite the tremendous economic slump.

Either Detroit or MINNEAPOLIS/St. Paul. Minnesota and Minneapolis are not the same thing... Correct the poll.

If you're referring to my post, I put the "Twin Cities" in meaning Minneapolis/St. Paul (but I just realized that maybe not everyone automatically thinks Minneapolis/St. Paul when they hear "Twin Cities" like I do).

I agree but Indianapolis and Minneapolis are seem to be up and coming and could serious to challenge Metro Detroit in the near future.

Tough one. Minneapolis and Detroit for sure. Minneapolis has a lot of Fortune 500 companies headquartered (i.e. Best Buy, DirecTV, etc) in the area actually and Detroit for the auto industry. Some choices on the list, like Des Moines, lag far behind some of the others.

Detroit has its history, but it's been stagnant for the last half century and I get the sense that it was never meant to be the size that it is. The Twin Cities however have been growing steadily for the last 150 years and show no signs of slowing down. St. Louis would be a distant fourth.
