I disagree; Charlotte is already a regional hub within the South. It already serves as the unofficial capital of the Carolinas with over 12 million people.

Don't know about 12 million but I agree with everything else you are saying.

The 12 million refers to the combined population of the Carolinas.

It is odd that Charlotte was conveniently omitted. What do you think about Baltimore?

I think Charlotte was probably omitted because the OP thinks it already qualifies.

For all practical intents and purposes, Baltimore is a mid-Atlantic city and not a Southern one.

Oh ok that makes more sense. I thought it was in terms of the next hub, meaning the same size or influence as Atlanta or Dallas.

Well obviously Charlotte isn't a peer of Atlanta or Dallas in terms of size and influence, but it's clearly next in line outside of peninsular Florida and already acts as a mid-major hub.

I wouldn't call CLT a "Powerhouse" at this point in time. I agree with your statement though. CLT is at a point in its growth that clearly makes it a runner up. Would have been a one sided poll had CLT been added IMO.
