Best Answer

As of 2008, the population of the United States was approximately 304 million. Approximately 126 million people live west of the Mississippi River, including the non-contiguous states of Alaska and Hawaii, or approximately 41% of the US population. Therefore, the remaining 59% of the population, or approximately 178 million people live east of the Mississippi River.
