In both cases, Republican inroads resulted more from a hopelessly divided Democratic party than a change in public opinion about antislavery politics. Pennsylvania was a border state, and it was often unclear on what side of that border the state stood.

I wonder what Pennsylvania bordered...

That' all well and good. Now let's consider what the thread topic is again.

Which states are considered northeastern?

So in light of your statement above, what are the states we can say, without equivocation, are northeastern?

Maine
Vermont
New Hampshire
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Connecticut
New York
New Jersey
Pennsylvania

And there you have it. Everything else is noise.

I'll take the field over Judith Giesberg's statement. If you understand sports phrases you'll grasp what I meant when I said that.

Here is the actual topic of the thread:

Sometimes, the Northeast even reaches as south as the Virginias. The definition of the Northeast could be changed at anytime. The original definition only included ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, DE, PA and that happened when this country was still new. MD used to be considered a southeastern colony, but overtime, MD became more northeastern.

Which states do you considered Northeastern?
And so, here is my response: CT, DE, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT

^^Metro is a better barometer since much of the White ethnic populations in these cities have moved to the burbs.

Boston, NYC, and Philly are the only cities where White Catholics and Jews make up a majority of the non-Hispanic White population. The numbers for Baltimore are significantly less (about right in the middle between these cities and Richmond). DC is much closer to Richmond.

I would personally add Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina to this list. These states are getting all of the same transplants Maryland is getting.

Pay no attention to the person, and (whoever it is) will go away, finally. To respond simply eggs it on. Of course, I would recommend not "officially" put the person on ignore, as that might be construed as giving the lunacy of the posts some actual respect. Instead, just wave it off and ignore them like you would an irritating song on the radio.

Even PA west of the proclamiation line of 1763 and NY west of the Finger lakes have an economy and culture and cuisine more in tune with the Midwest than NE

Based on the opinion below that would make North Carolina a Northern State....

There's a tiny part of rural Maryland, basically Charles County and south, that has a bit of a Southern feel, in that it's rural former tobacco country and old timers have accents. But that's like 2% of Maryland population; and you can get Southern-associated accents as far north as the southern tier of NY State, with the Appalachian accents associated with W. Virginia that are also extending into PA and even a tiny bit into the mountains in NY State.
