MD is the south my friend. It's largest region, the Baltimore area, is a staunchly southern metro. And we don't want to be like the Northeast.

You need to exchange "we" with "I". You're quite the broken record on this, my friend.

Are you the one who keeps insisting on this. You do realize the MASS MAJORITY of people from Maryland would disagree with you on this right? People from Northern Virginia don't even like being considered southern.

I would exchange it with "I" if I was the only person who thought this.

I'm sure that they disagree with what I'm saying, but they can't tell you how and why Northern VA and Maryland isn't southern. The south, in 2017, is a Juggernaut.

As others have noted, Northeast Ohio definitely has New England character. Lots of town squares, Unitarian churches, factory towns etc.

Ohio in general. I live in Cincinnati and it is basically like Philly and Pittsburgh (topography like Pitt and people with very Pennsylvania like attitudes). It is little c conservative though unlike Cleveland. But that is just because of not only the historic Kentucky transplants but also the historic German population, most of whom vote Republican. Other than that Cincinnati could fit in the Northeast without a problem in my opinion. Pennsylvania would be an OK home for Cincinnati though and not anything in New England. In a way the little c conservatism still reeks of Pennsylvania because I always felt PA had a less obnoxious conservative undertone. Not only amongst Germans but also many Italians who seem very old school.

It's the strangest and most comical thing to see MD/D.C. people constantly arguing about whether they're Northern or Southern in every thread. It's bound to come up and set off a nerve anytime a thread mentions Northeast and doesn't include MD/DC or mentions the South and does include MD/DC. Notice how people from Delaware act normal and don't seem to care either way where people classify them. City Data is a trip!

I one reason that Delaware is so quiet on the matter is that they're considered an extension of Philly, so they're northeastern by default. MD on the other hand, outside of the DC area, is culturally self-contained. That self contained culture is what where the debates comes from. I personally think that MD is southern, but it isn't your stereotypical southern state, similar to how Florida is perceived. I think some people in MD, and many more outside of it, have an incredibly difficult time grasping that reality. I also think that it speaks to how RIDICULOUSLY diverse the south really is.

You're a Baltimore area native, what do you think?

I haven't heard a convincing argument from you yet as to why those areas are southern. Why are you so insistent on it? Maryland never seceded from the union anyway. Northern Virginia may have been somewhat southern prior to 1960, but it clearly isn't anymore. Even the rural areas of Maryland still have more in common with upstate NY than they do rural Georgia.
