North to South. Its hard to find sweet tea in Kansas but easy in Oklahoma.

The biggest difference east-west is that the east is more traditional and old fashioned.

I second the Urban vs. Rural. There seems to be a larger difference from urban to rural even within the same state, than any specific region. Possibly due to the ease of mobility and a lot more people are moving from region to region within the urban areas. Fewer rural people seem to relocate often.

Politics reflects this too, Urban settings tend to vote democrat vs rural areas vote republican, this is the case even in the liberal west and conservative south.

I was about to say politics.

I voted North vs. South for that reason. I don't think the whole East vs. West thing is as big as it used to be.

I think that I favor urban vs rural but bear in mind that these cultural differences are not mutually exclusive like they might be in geographic areas in the poll. East coast, west coast, and inland might be a three way break if we are confined to regions. The coasts are significantly different from each other and both are different from inland areas.

Look at any political map and tell me it isn't coastal vs. inland for the most part. I can think of only a few States that are coastal that reliably vote Red. Alaska, South Carolina, and Georgia come to mind. My definition of coastal is Atlantic/Pacific, not Gulf, but there is an argument there I suppose.

People saying North and South obviously don't live out West because that dynamic doesn't exist at all.

Yeah well the gulf coast is a coast. And you'd have Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida that vote red or have very red areas.
