Im impressed that they captured the regional differences in New Brunswick. Id like to know he difference between the Midlands and Yankeedom.

Well, if you clicked through the capsule descriptions the difference seems to be about the role of government.

Yankeedom
Residents in these states, founded by Puritans, are more comfortable with government regulation than people in other regions. They also value education, citizen participation in government, and the assimilation of outsiders, Woodard said.

The Midlands are "America's great swing region," Woodard wrote, citing the region's ethnic diversity and politically moderate views.
Midlands society is "pluralistic and organized around the middle class," Woodard wrote. People here reject government intrusion.
