Which States Think They’re In The South?


Another tasty map from FiveThirtyEight. They pulled data from a survey that asked residents of certain states whether or not they thought they were a part of the American South.

Most shockingly, Colorado considers itself to be in the South, along with at least 1% of Ohio (probably just bitter ATLiens who relocated), Indiana and Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, Lousiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia all align themselves as the most Southern of all the states. Despite its newfound SECness, only roughly 30% of Missourians think they’re a part of the South, let alone the SEC East. Whatever, still won the division anyway. Coming for you next year, Malzahn.

Read the entire article, which goes into much more detail on FiveThirtyEight.
