Actually, the majority of Atlanta transplants are from the NE, which you can confirm by researching yourself. But you missed the point I was making. Your image of the south is a bunch of bumbo **** red necks who don't embrace culture and progressivism. While this may be true for some good ole boys living in the backwoods of Mississippi, a good part of the south (including Florida) has been changing dramatically for the last several decades. You have to accept it for what it is. Heck, an argument can be made now that Austin is now more liberal than Boston.

Culturally, Florida is unique for sure. just embrace it. New Orleans is unique. Memphis is unique. Nashville is unique. Dallas, Houston, Savannah, Charleston, Richmond, etc etc are unique. Classical southern culture is disappearing from a lot of southern cities, but that doesn't remove these places geographically from the south. Call it what you will. Most geographers refer to it as the New South.

Atl must be doing something right. Most of the folks I know there are from FL. Fla attracts different types of ppl than Ga and NC. Fla is a rental car.

I agree. When I visit friends in Alpharetta. I don't feel at all like I'm in backwoods Mississippi at all. To me it feels like a prettier, hilly Lake Mary.

Rental?

That's why FL surpasses NY recently to become the third most-populated state in the country

More like how people treat rental cars. At first, I thought you were using an euphemism for prostitutes?

Sounds like it's more in and in if you look at the statistics. Northeast has been losing population to the sunbelt for decades, FL is one of the states people have moved to

There's more people moving in than out obviously, thus, population growth. I get that. It does seem that a lot of people I meet want to leave, have already left, or already have plans to leave. Not usually the people that just got here, but the people that have been here for a while. Fla is very transient, outside of Nevada, I think it's the most transient, last I remember reading.
