I can't upload for some reason but it's written by Lonely Planet, and they consider the Mid-Atlantic to be the Virginias, DC/Maryland/Delaware, Penna & Jersey..
Well whomever the author is either has something against NY or is flat out wrong.

That said PA is an diverse state; can be very urban and very liberal in many areas and alos can be very rural and extremely conservative in others. PA has been said have the largest rural population of any state, not sure if it is true.


PA unlike some other states, is generally in play in tighter elections.


As Carville said its Philly and Pittsbugh with Alabama in the middle. I think that way-oversimplifies it and if anything I might say its Philly and the Burgh with West Virginia in the middle; much of the state is Appalachian and mountainous. the extreme SE corner (Philly and the surrounding 4 counties has about 40% of the whole state population.


also its a tale of two states really; Philly had a higher D vote percentage in 2016 than did LA, and the surrounding counties a lower trump percentage than the OC and IE as an example.


PA really has a pretty substantial political composition mix from its urban to rural parts, maybe moreso or as much as any state.

Default Why is the Mid-Atlantic region lumped in with the N.E.?

because that's where it belongs.

Default A more precise delineation of the two Mid-Atlantics

I've recently completed a project, including input from several C-D users (CookieSkoon, sorry you have to see this again lol), that divides all 3,142 counties of the US into the smallest number of regions that local residents could still find plausible, and based on ecoregions and economic ties rather than politics or "culture." The criteria for the project are listed in the link below. But the resulting map provides a way to define a "Mid-Atlantic" in its two senses (northern and southern) based on national criteria, not just unique-to-the-Mid-Atlantic criteria.



Home page for the "United Regions of America" map: https://www.jeremyposadas.org/regions
