Though generally considered a conservative and Republican stronghold, Indiana has voted into both state and national office nearly as many Democrats as Republicans. Population (2010) 6,483,802; (2017 est.) 6,666,818. Indiana forms part of the east-central lowlands that slope downward from the Appalachian Mountains to the Mississippi River.
