Your poll is flawed; you left out quite a number of northern states.

I am confused why Pennsylvania is listed. If you are referring to the part of Pennsylvania bordering on West Virginia, that part of Pennsylvania is not Southern, including the bordering areas of northern WV. It may have Appalachian and Midwestern influences, but it's not Southern.

Interesting about what others said about Michigan. It does seem like Detroit's black community has kept it's southern roots, but almost all of the white people I've met from Detroit are long time natives of Michigan with an upper Midwestern accent.

Good call.. Michigan is a Northern state that could've been added, and one that shares a lot of cultural similarities with the South.

Another flaw in my opinion, listing DE, MD, & MO. All three are Border States, not traditional 'Northern' states. With that said tho', this is an interesting topic.. I'm casting a write-in vote for Michigan.

No all three were border states. Today for the most part all three are aligned with the North.

Saying Michigan has Southern influence is like saying Mississippi has Northern influence.

Missouri 1st
Illinois 2nd
Indian 3rd
Ohio 4th

Maryland and Delware used to have a fairly southern type culture but only traces of that currently remain.

Ah, that may be but the poll also includes the fair state of Missouri.
