Pacific Northwesterners, Upper Midwesterners or Canadians from the Prairies?

Why didn't you vote?

Why do you want to know? Another college paper due? You seem to post nothing but comparison posts.

It really depends on what part of Montana you want to rate or compare to. The peoples ways seem to be influenced by the neighboring states. Just like microclimate pockets, this state is so vast and varied that there are many cultural micro pockets.

Why so prickly?

I don't want to contaminate the vote. But I'll vote now.

Very simple. This is a completely worthless question to 99.99% of the people. In order to do comparisons of phsycological studies of people, or cultural differences, a person would have had to live in all four of the choices to vote on. You could not simply visit or drive through. I've lived in two. Montana and the Dakota's. They are not even close to being the same. Without living in the other 2, I can't vote and if I did, I would be guessing.

I grew up in Missoula, and have lived in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. I voted Pacific NW (OR, WA, ID).

Missoula feels very similar to Oregon imo. But I'd say people in Great Falls might feel closer to Alberta/Saskatchewan, and people in Glasgow to the Dakotas. Maybe?

What a silly question. The state is much to large to make any such generalizations.

Considering that the state of Montana, is the size of the entire North East combined, with less than 1,000,000 people, there is no way anyone could really answer your question.

Wow people are uptight on this. It's just a poll, don't answer if it's so offensive.

From what I've seen of people in eastern Montana I would compare that region to the Dakotas. Western Montana is a class by itself along with north Idahoand possibly eastern Oregon and eastern Washington. Southwest Montana seems like a blend of the two regions.
