Some states have officially become "un-southern" due to migratory trends and political realignment. What will be the next southern state to leave the South for another region of the US?

I don't think any Southern state is going to "secede", or officially designate itself as part of another region. The South is the South, and no matter which states are experiencing a heavy influx of transplants, or a quantum shift in culture, they're going to remain a part of the South.

Just because not all Southern states are exactly like each other, doesn't mean they're no longer Southern. Same thing is true of any region.

Florida does not really have much Southern culture outside of Northern Florida and the Panhandle area (ie anywhere from Daytona Beach/Orlando/Tampa south). Plus it is one of the few states where "natives" are outnumbered by transplants from other states and immigrants.

Virginia is still heavily dominated by Southern culture outside of NOVA.

None of the above. For me, the premise of this thread is flawed. They all seem southern to me and I suspect and predict will stay so.

Seconded.

In fact where is the option for none of the above on the poll?

Let me see if I can play this game right.

None-there's no such thing as "The South" anymore because now everyone is liberal, lives in the city and drives Lamborghinis.

If that means we can further distance ourselves from the backwoods inbreds such as those in TN, you have a deal.

Yeah, because there are NO backwoods inbreds in Florida.
