Yes I will believe a random message board assertion over census data.

That map is looking at German percentage as part of the whole county population, so if there are a lot of black, Hispanic, or Asian people it will bring German percentage down. That is why those mostly homogenous counties in the Midwest are highest. Florida peninsula is only about 50% non-Hispanic white, but that population is also very German derived, including myself. Southwest Florida has a lot of old school German people who's family came in the 1800s and is also a primary destination for German immigrants today.

The map has expanded, and will probably continue to expand, as the country is more mobile than ever, but the base will always be the Midwest, especially the upper Midwestern states like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, the Dakotas and Nebraska. NY and Pennsylvania will the the strongest reps in the East, and even New England has had its share of transplants ( like me, for example)..
