St. Louis is the antithesis of Sunbelt.

Atlanta is the official capital of the south as far as I'm concerned.

Confusing thread title....it's either the South or the Sunbelt in which case you would have to include California cities in the sunbelt category.

St. Louis isn't in either category.

Only a nobody would disagree.
If you would have said Atlanta is the capital of the southEAST I would agree. However saying Atlanta is the capital of the entire south with Houston and Dallas included is laughable. Both Dallas and especially Houston have bigger economies and a higher gdp than Atlanta.

Houston. Undoubtedly.

Then DFW metro

Then Miami, SD, Phoenix and ATL.
Charlotte, San Antonio,Orlando, Austin and a few others are close behind

Hampton Roads? Greensboro/Winston-Salem? Greenville/Spartanburg? Ft Myers/Cape Coral (SW Florida)? Tulsa? Knoxville?
All over a million by CSA and all missing from the list. Those are the ones off the top of my head.

The Bay Area is technically part of the Sunbelt as well.

The Sun Belt stretches from coast to coast. There is no main city. I guess you're asking about the South or Southeast, in which case Atlanta is the winner.

If it's the Southeast, it's Atlanta. If it's the South in general. It's a mix of four cities (Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas). If it's the entire sunbelt, there is simply no main city.
