West Virginia is debatable, but Kentucky is definitely in the South.

Funny you included Delaware. I was friends with a Massachusetts family where the grandmother was from Seaford, DE. They used to refer to her as their "Token Southerner".

Pretty much no one considers Delaware the south today - perhaps they never did even though it's below the Mason Dixon line. A winky face notwithstanding.

SOUTH Florida. North Florida is more conservative and more southern. Small towns are even more southern.

There is still 'Southernness' to be found in South Florida - it's a lot more diluted than in North Florida but it's there. If you go in the rural areas of South Florida, by the everglades, you pick up noticeable southern characteristics in the communities - from their accents, food choices, pace of living. The only city in Florida that has been completely diluted of its Southernness is Miami but even in Miami if you go down to Homestead or up to Palm Beach county, you begin to see Southern elements around the edges. Florida is a Southern state that has been transformed through immigration and transplantation, but it's still Southern in her foundation.

Miami is "New South" like Atlanta and Charlotte.

Not really. Atlanta and Charlotte feel incredibly Southern to me. South Florida feels only Southern around the edges. It's not the 'new South' in the sense it's the industrial South/the urban South - long removed from its plantation or rural origins. It's what happens when you have a small Southern coastal community that receives way way way more people from elsewhere. In that sense, it's comparable to DC/Maryland and not Atlanta or Charlotte.
