When it comes to rooting for a team in the Super Bowl this year, Minnesota wants Kansas City. In fact, most of the Midwest wants KC (except for Dakota) and the majority of the country does as well.

It's not surprising. Minnesotans will almost always cheer for a Midwest team, especially if the other team is from California. Plus, it's a way better story. Kansas City hasn't been to the big dance in 50 years. San Francisco, on the other hand, has won many championships.

A new survey from House Method shows what states want what team to win. They surveyed over 4,000 Americans and analyzed the data by state and gender. You can see who men are cheering and who women are cheering for in those states. And it's not always the same.


Here are some of the findings:
