Yeah I edited it to add some things. I can see how one would say San Antonio is behind them. It seems less Southern in feel than both Houston (I still do not agree that this city is in the Deep South) and Dallas which is where Texas is at.

The main city counties for Houston and San Antonio were basically about the same percentages (few tenths at most), with those of Dallas and Austin having larger Hillary margins.

But, Houston is also the only big 4 metro in the state that has a county outside the city proper that went to Hillary.

FT and Dallas same ol same...Nashville and Memphis couldn't be more different

You haven't spent enough time to in either FTW or Dallas to come up with that conclusion. The population size, demographics, and density alone are clearly different between the 2. It's really interesting how different they are despite being only 30+ miles away. You even admitted you never really explored Dallas.

Nashville and Memphis are 3 hours apart, so it's not an accurate comparison to how Dallas differs from FTW. What about Memphis reminds you of TN? I think you're in the minority to think Nashville is out of place there.

I can't think of an example in Michigan, even if a few cities seem unique.

In California, none of the major cities feel out of place, per se. However, San Diego has some strange quasi-Midwesternness because of all the military and young professional transplants from the Midwest who live in the area. I actually think San Diego does feel out of place relative to, say, L.A., San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento, yet it still feels Californian at the same time.

For California, I'd ultimately vote for (a) Eureka, (b) Crescent City and (c) Yreka in the north, as they feel like they should be just part of Oregon; and, (d) Imperial County in the south, as it has far more in common with Yuma, AZ than with the rest of Southern California.

In another state, Kentucky, (a) Louisville inside I-264, (b) the tri-county northern Kentucky region (Covington, Newport, Florence, Fort Thomas), and (c) the flatlands and bayous along the Mississippi River (Fulton, Hickman, Columbus, Wickliffe) actually feel pretty out of place from the rest of the state. Kentucky can be rather strange.

Other examples I can think of... Mobile in Alabama, El Paso in Texas, the cities in the northwest corner of Indiana, and, arguably, Cincinnati in Ohio.

People say Sacramento feels Midwestern--how? Where in the Midwest does it remind one of? I definitely don't see it...

Memphis is definitely very, very similar to Mississippi, but let me add this. If ones only experience in Tennessee is Memphis/West Tennessee, Memphis feels quintessentially Tennessee to you. So Knoxville and Nashville seem more similar to each other than either to Memphis, but Memphis is still Tennessee...

Forth Worth is nothing more than a smaller version of Dallas. You don't need a month in dallas and fort worth to see how similar they are. Yes i didn't explored Dallas for a long time but lets be honest for the comparison we are discussing here a few days would suffice.
And Knoxville share no similarities with Nashville

Dallas and Fort Worth are whole different vibes.Dallas is more glitz,glamour,fancy and white collar/city-slicker and Fort Worth is more Cowboy and blue collar/down to earth.
