Yeah, I guess if they are liberal it must mean they aren't southern. Any area not classically southern is subtracted from the South by some. To me it's just an area that's different but still part of the region, like New Orleans or South Florida.

I have to say Northern states, due to the climate, do in fact tend to be more taciturn and blue.
And the heat can really make people see red in the Southern states. Red is also the color of amore.
And all the skin the girls show when the summer swings around with it's relentless 100+ degree days.
This is a true fact here.

I had a place mat map of the United States when I was a kid. According to it, Texas was orange and Ohio was pink.

Sorry, but you're wrong. How you can call a place that isn't linguistically, demographically, or culturally Southern part of the South? Tell me why these areas should be grouped in with cities like Richmond before Philadelphia from a modern standpoint. New Orleans is very culturally and linguistically Southern, so it's not a like case there. South Florida, unlike Northern Virginia or Northern Kentucky, doesn't border upon multiple regions and is demographically very similar to South Texas. So I really don't see your point. If Northern Virginia is the South, then southern Virginia is the north. That's essentially the logic of this.
