"northern VA" is not really on MOST peoples radar...a non factor...except maybe for Richmond. You know how many people don't even think about going to DC let alone Alexandria or Tysons Corner from here?...SOME people may go there to shop...but most people used to head straight to NYC...that's why they had so many Chinese buses goin there since way back when. Some may seek employment after graduation.

The "rest of the state don't like us" ...according to what? More than likely its your "rest of the state" attitude is what people don't like. Who is known from "NoVA"? People KNOW Allen Iverson, Mike Vick, Aaron Brooks, Mike Tomlin, Al Toon, Pharrell/ Neptunes/N.E.R.D./ Clipse/ Pusha, Deangelo Hall, Bruce Smith, Lawrence Taylor, Kam Chancellor, Percy Harvin, Plaxico, Sweat Pea Whitaker, William Fuller, Alonzo Morning, BJ and Justin Upton, Ryan Zimmerman, Missy and Timberland, LaShawn Meritt, Gabby Douglas etc etc etc. that's just people off the top of my head from the 757-Tidewater!, we smile when we see their success...I could go on and on and on. Not to mention Richmond. These people don't have to yell "two up two down" every 5 mins. we know they representing us. Real live VA representatives. Where "NoVA" at?

When George Mason made it to the final four a lot of people wanted them to win as well even though they are rivals with VCU. VCU is ODUs rival also. But they are from Virginia. Youd be surprised how many "real" Northern Virginians have moved into Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, and Williamsburg. There are many who have fled "NoVA" calling it cultureless/soulless...maybe there is something to it. This CD forum is not real reality. Most of us DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT northern VA down here like that to hate it. Get off the CD forums and hit the streets. Now, SWVA is a whole other situation and I don't know what to say about the place but I would imagine they would feel the same about Richmond and definitely HR because the only time people from here go out there is to play football for Tech(if that's considered SWVA) or to go to penitentiary. Plus they probably feel neglected by the state and "NoVA's" an easy target, I don't know. I wouldn't call them "the rest of VA" I would call them what ever they go by. For real, the 757 IS VIRGINIA and everywhere else is "the rest of Virginia"...we run this sheet. LOL. NoVA's alright, condescending snooty transplanted individuals who are not even from VA or atleast neighboring states...are not. Especially when they claim theyre representing VA...... 7 CITIES...That's what WE DO. We represent.
Ima Pg dude myself but after all that.....VA stand up..

Historically Baltimore was politically dominant in the state. In the last couple decades that's shifted to the DC metro region of MD. This area includes Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. Carry those two jurisdictions and Baltimore City and you win statewide elections.

Not to mention that Montgomery County has the wealthiest suburbs in Maryland.

Baltimore's influence is of course Baltimore county, Carroll County, Harford County, most of Anne Arundel and Howard, with most of the eastern shore having a decent sphere of influence for folks wanting to go the big city. Lower Southern Maryland is influenced by DC/Balt about equally with a side of Richmond, though its residents seem to be in their own bubble. Garrett county is in Pittsburgh's sphere of influence, with Allegany a PGH/BAL/DC mix with Cumberland ever so slightly closer to Pittsburgh than Baltimore/DC. Cecil county is Baltimore influenced in Port Deposit and Perryville and Philly influenced elsewhere. Eastern Kent county also has some Philly influence, despite being quite a bit closer to Baltimore.
That said, in terms of areal influence from largest to smallest:

1. Baltimore
2. DC
3. Pittsburgh
4. Philadelphia
5. Richmond

Population influence:
1. DC/Baltimore (tie)
3. Philadelphia
4. Pittsburgh
5. Richmond
Sounds about right to me.

PG Represent! But I got love for Richmond and the 757. Outside of Fairfax City, Alexandria City, Fairfax County, Arlington County, Prince William County, and somewhat Loudon County, I don't really care much for NoVa. Love the diversity and food offerings. Some parts of NoVa have some interesting character, most especially Alexandria (LOVE its neighborhoods, especially Old Town).
