Yeah, I ultimately put Oklahoma in the South by default, because of its more southerly latitude.

As a whole, VA is Southern with some mid-Atlantic thrown in. Nothing Northeastern about it.

Nah Virignia is southern easily. I'd Say West Virignia is pretty difficult.

Maryland is the South, so Virginia is most certainly the south.

Not that I have asked thousands of people where they think West Virginia is but the impression I have is very few of my fellow New Yorkers will think West Virginia as part of the Northeast.

The location is too far south (further south then parts of southern states like Virginia and Kentucky) and too far west (actually southwest of parts of Ohio) to be considered Northeastern. West Virginia is not actually that far away from Tennessee!

No. West Virginia is the South. Maryland is the northeast. Delaware is the northeast. DC is the northeast. Virginia is the Northeast east of Charlottesville (Roanoke and Lynchburg and so on are southern.) Bits of North Carolina are northeastern. (OBX, etc.)

Largely agree with this, but North Carolina, even with the Research Triangle, is still southern, IMHO. In VA, I would say that NOVA is northeastern, while the rest of the state is southern ( if we're going to parse sections of states)....

This Virginian maintains that Virginia is in the South. West Virginia is mostly southern, save Morgantown and the northern pan handle. Maryland has southern parts and northeasternish parts.

You should stick with classifying the West because you're getting it all wrong over on this side. To claim that anything in NC is northeastern is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

You're really confusing what it means to be northeastern and what it means to be mid-Atlantic (the contemporary connotation of the term).
