You might call the rivalry between Wisconsin and Minnesota a friendly one. Then again – you might call it a bitter one.
Twin Cities Public Television is trying to end the debate once and for all with an online poll put together by the program Are You MN Enough?
It seems a bit unfair that Minnesota-based media is carrying out this experiment, and here at WhooNEW, we think it’s time for Wisconsinites to step up!
Thankfully, there are apparently some moles that have infiltrated Twin Cities Public Television. Through their counter-intelligence efforts, I was alerted to the plans of Minnesotans to claim the title of “Better State.”
I cannot reveal the identity of my sources. All I can say is that they are trustworthy and talented Wisconsinites who now call Minnesota home – but remain loyal to the Badger State.
If you’re ready to make your voice heard right now – Don’t Wait! As of this writing, Minnesota is beating Wisconsin by 10 percentage points.

The History of the Rivalry Between Minnesota and Wisconsin
The deep-seated disgust between our two states began long before fans of the Vikings and Green Bay Packers clashed.
It all started in 1890 – at a tavern – no surprise there. At first, it was a friendly conversation between two men, full of compliments for the other’s state.
But classic Upper-Midwestern passive aggressiveness (and probably alcohol) eventually turned the conversation sour.
Watch the hilarious, eye-opening video below for the full story!
In the video, people on the street give their reasons for why either Minnesota or Wisconsin is the better state.
There are some of the big ones. Like the fact that Minnesota brags about its lakes when Wisconsin actually has more!
Funny that football never gets mentioned. How many National Championships does your team have? Oh, that’s right ONE – and technically – it wasn’t even a Super Bowl! The Packers have you beat by a dozen titles.
Minnesotans always play sour grapes and pretend they don’t care. We all know the truth.
Now is the time to stand up and show our neighbors who the greatest state in the Midwest really is.
