In some ways, I still like Massinc's Commonwealth Project ten regions more, in terms of dividing the country into regions based on voting proclivities. 




although clearly they haven't updated it since 2000, as promised

http://www.massinc.org/index.php?id=110&pub_id=1618

But for the purposes of giving a test and boxing you according to your answers to several questions and determining matches, I like this 13-region thing better, since it separates the pacific west from Back East.  What it doesn't do, is separate New England, Pennsylvania, or Florida into the radically different political regions like the Commonwealth Project does.  For example, Miami and Destin are put into the same "peripheral south" even though the combination of caribbean immigrants and new york jews in the former have different priorities than the condo owners and sunworshipping residents of Destin and Panama City, most of whom hail from Georgia and Alabama.

I'm not sure if Columbus, OH would be considered Upper Midwest or not.  It really isn't a true rust belt city although it has felt the affects of the decline in manufacturing.

Desert South West. No surprise, my values and personality are pretty stereotypically Western. The nanny-statism and PC of the northeast pisses me off, but at least the weather's nice and people generally aren't fundies.

Exact list (according to them):

#1   Desert Southwest
#2   Rocky Mountain / Alaska
#3   Upstate New York
#4   Pacific Coast / Hawaii
#5   Mid Atlantic
#6   Texas
#7   NYC / New England
#8   Border States: Virginia, Tennessee & Kentucky
#9   South Atlantic
#10   Upper Mid-west
#11   Deep South
#12   Rust Belt
#13   Peripheral South

Texas being #6 is a serious stretch given the amount of Conservative Christians in that state (although San Antonio and Austin are nice). But otherwise, it looks pretty accurate. Especially the South and Rustbelt being at the bottom.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Think I'm fine where I am.  Best option is 3000 miles from me though.  My guess is my liberal answers on the drug issues put me as Pacific coast as opposed to the more pro law and order mid-Atlantic.
