I see your point and I agree with you that there is some deep south culture in those areas. It is a well known fact that Memphis is different from the other cities here in TN, some often say its more like Mississippi than it is Tennessee. I think Little Rock is less deep south than Memphis is, but yes I see your point. Overall though Arkansas is an upper south state, just like TN is. As with all debates of this nature this is subjective. Your point is taken however.

I wonder how including Atlanta would have changed this poll...I think it probably clearly would have won, but I wonder by how much...and I wonder if Columbia would have come in second, or if Atl would have taken some of its votes more so than the other cities.

The gap would be so big between Atlanta and whichever city would place second that it wouldn't really even matter.

Is it just me, or does Fayetteville, NC seem a little Deep South? I know Eastern NC is a bit Deep South, but even some areas in the Sandhills seem a bit Deep South to me. Fayetteville sits between the Sandhills and Coastal Plain (Eastern NC) and it has always struck me as being more southern than some of the other NC cities like Greensboro, Charlotte, etc. However, this might be due to the fact that it's smaller and isn't growing as fast. Any opinions?

Mississippi and Alabama are both below Tennessee, and Tennessee is Upper South. Georgia is below North Carolina and Tennessee, and again, those are both Upper South. South Carolina is below North Carolina, an Upper South state. South Carolina is definitely Deep South, and people will call it Deep South partly due to the fact that it was the first state to secede from the Union. Also, you can't call a city like Charleston anything but Deep South.

I have to say that Columbia was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a pretty run down and ugly southeastern town (a la Augusta) but boy was I wrong. What I saw was a wonderfully landscaped little city with some unexpected charms. Maybe it was just a good day but I was impressed nonetheless.

Why does it get so hot there though?

I think Columbia's location within the Sandhills region (Augusta is included also) has something to do with it. Thunderstorms More Frequent In The Sandhills Region! | State Climate Office of North Carolina
