I think you would have to specify by party ... for example, Ohio's Republican Party seems to have somewhat of an "Establishment" feel, while it's Democratic Party seems pretty populist.  Additionally, due to the closed primary status, actual registered Democrats in West Virginia (who outnumber Republicans by a huge margin) are probably very populist while registered Republicans (who enjoy their biggest registration advantages by the DC exurbs) are fairly establishment, even though that is not very intuitive.

In terms of 'populist' states, West Virginia comes to mind
I'm tempted to say the same but they elected Jay Rockefeller

There is a certain amount of populism you retain simply by having a D next to your name.  Jay Rockefeller wasn't in DC all of those years arguing for cutting taxes and freeing up markets.

I know TN voted for Clinton twice, but 1) most of those voters that pushed Slick Willy over the edge are dead now and 2) it seems to have some of the most establishment Republicans in the country...
