Today, would you say Maryland is similar to states like Connecticut (or Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire) or is it more similar to North Carolina? Geographically, Maryland is right in the middle, but I'm sure tons of folks would admit Maryland probably has more historical ties to North Carolina. However, what about today? Do you think Baltimore is more similar to Raleigh or Hartford? Just in terms of ties with other states, suburban vs rural aspects, migration patterns, etc.

You asked what about Maryland today and then two sentences later you say just in terms of historical ties.

Choose one. You can't ask about modern day Maryland and then say including historical ties. Are you asking about old Maryland or present day Maryland? Again, choose what you're asking.

Sorry, present day Maryland.

North Carolina for sure. There's absolutely nothing in Maryland remotely close to anywhere in Connecticut, New England, or the northeast overall.

Where most people live in central Md is more like CT, but the eastern shore is more like NC. I'd say overall CT.

Potomac, MD is about identical to Fairfield, CT where my father grew up.

The eastern shore is very similar to NC's shore just without the crab emphasis.

Anyone else notice North Carolina went from 15 to 32 votes in about 10 minutes? I guess someone really wants NC to be the answer.

Connecticut's coast is really unlike any other. It sits on a Sound, which technically is not the ocean and is not 100% salt water, so the whole coastal feel will be different than Maryland's. Then again, a lot of MD's coastal culture surrounds the Bay, which is more similar to the Sound than the ocean is.

I don't know NC well enough to vote but there are many similarities between MD and CT, I think. State size, near/part of one or more major city metro regions (Baltimore and especially DC for MD, NYC for CT). Wealth and education stats are similar, too, for CT and MD, though I wonder if MD's demographics are more similar to NC - very well may be and I don't feel like looking it up right now. I do know for sure that a big part of CT's demographics and culture includes the Italian-American population, while Maryland does not share this. Difference may be minor though in the grand scheme when compared to a state like NC. If compared to a Northeastern state, it would make a difference, but since it's NC, it doesn't.

I think CT is the one here.

Ya I got on and it was 36-22 and then a few minutes later it is 36-45. Jerseygirl is right, this forum is decked out with trolls.
