I count Mid-Atlantic as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and Virginia. Wikipedia counts West Virginia and New York. I cout New York part of New England.

It's still far from being a blue state.

New York is NOT New England. Only NOVA is Mid-Atlantic. The rest of Virginia is Southern.

All of New York in its entirety is more like Pennsylvania than any state in New England.

True it has this very rural feeling, influenced by the Dutch, farming, rails, and the Great Lakes to the West and Atlantic to the East.

NJ, PA, and NY are unquestionably Northeastern in my opinion.
I'm more in this camp.

Not really; it's gone blue in the last two presidential elections and the state's continuing demographic shifts suggest that there's a good chance it will become a reliably blue state, or at the least a blue-leaning battleground state like PA.

How true is this? Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Allenton, Scranton. I know I'm leaving out cities. But that's a good 9 million right there, no?

1. True
2. A lot of the little metros aren't very blue.
