The accent in North Florida or Alabama is no where as strong as state of Texas or state of Georgia.

Also I find Texas to be more country like.

I don't know about Georgia but Texas accents are a result of a mixture of different parts of the South rolled into one. There is no one Texas accent honestly. East Texans sound way different than central Texas which sounds way different than South Texans.

Well yes some places is really weak. I was just saying storage wars texas and shipping wars would be too strong for North Florida or Alabama and here comes honey boo boo would be way too strong for North Florida or Alabama .

North Florida or Alabama has more slight twang and speak bit softer.

To be fair, it's tv. And honey boo boo is based out of Georgia, right. You would definitely hear more of that in Bama or North Florida than Texas because the accents are similar.

You seem to be confused about the definition of "fact".

What you are posting are opinions.

Going by the states that were Confederate, it's going to have to be Virginia, Florida, and Texas. Rest of the states are pretty conservative.

Texas is not conservative? LOL!

When you get down to it, there are only a few percentage points between conservative and liberal states. You have to remember that a majority doesn't mean that the entire state falls in line. Too many people seem to forget this. There is a large percentage of people in the South that doesn't agree with the majority.
