In most rural areas most white people are Southerners. In general though south Florida is largely not considered Southern there are pockets of Southerners remaining in some inland parts.

In general take the states that were in the Confederacy (for our purposes we'll pretend Oklahoma was a state then). Add in Kentucky, West Virginia, the parts of Maryland that aren't Baltimore, Annapolis, or the suburbs of them or DC, and a bit of Southeastern Missouri. Take out Atlanta and its suburbs, Florida outside the panhandle, and the suburbs of Washington DC. Texas is a mishmash of about 5 cultures so parts are in culturally and parts are out. Good luck parsing that puzzle. In addition there's a widespread belief (at least in northern Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio) that the southern parts of these states are culturally Southern.

Florida easily has the least number of Southerners. It was the least populous state in the South until the 1960s, and its growth explosion has largely been fueled by non-Southerners (Yankees and Cubans in particular).

Its hard to say which state has the most. Most of the states with much larger populations can trace significant parts of their population to people moving in from outside the South. I guess depending on how you divide up Texas it might be the most reasonable answer.

Do I understand your first question correctly, you're asking which region of the USA has the highest percentage of white people of colonial ancestry, in its population?? This would NOT be Texas a whole, because Texas in general has great numbers of both Blacks and Hispanics. But on second thought, this might be true of the northwest ("panhandle" or "plains") part of Texas, however.

I would say, the best answer to your question, is THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN REGION OF THE SOUTHERN STATES. The entire Southern Appalachian region has mostly white people with Colonial-era ancestry (English, Scots/Irish, German). Most Black southerners generally live in either the coastal or the Piedmont areas of the South -- not in the Appalachian mountains. Relatively few immigrants from the 1800s or 1900s settled in the Appalachian South (except in the mining/industrial parts of West Virginia).

In rural areas of the north, midwest, and west USA, on the other hand, while much of the population has Colonial ancestry, many others there are descended instead from German, Irish, Scandinavian, or Canadian immigrants who arrived in the 1800s after the Colonial era. This is also true of Cities.
