Poll: When Midwesterners think of the Midwest, majority think of Illinois

This image above was provided by the Capitol Fax. The poll was conducted by the Midwest Initiative at Monmouth College. There's this data in addition to other data regarding our nation's Midwestern nation including what values they attribute to the Midwest, satisfaction of living in the Midwest, whether the Midwest is going in the right direction, or even how the Midwest fares in the global economy.

I think a lot of people still associate the mid-west with Reagan. People don't realize it, but California used to be home to millions of transplants from Illinois and Indiana, which formed entire communities. One of the reasons Reagan was elected governor. Lou Cannon discusses it in his biography of President Reagan, Role of a Lifetime.
