I agree with removing Missouri from "the south" . I live in SW MO and most people consider themselves "midwestern". OK and N. Arkansas also. I can't speak for the other regions...

West and north Texas (panhandle) are NOT southern, neither is Oklahoma, minus the far SE corner. Kansas? Questionable as midwest. Far western KS Id classify as West, same goes for OK's panhandle.

I don't think you can get away with just 4 regional divisions. Maybe more like 6 or 7.

That "South" of yours goes just a bit too far North, dearie. Pull that blue back a lil bit and you'll have it about right.

Arkansas is most certainly in the South. Bill Clinton wasn't called a "Midwestern" or "Western" governor.

i agree. can't speak for the other states, but in Texas the south ends where you stop seeing black, white, and hispanic and you end up just seeing white and mexican, then just mexican. also, the tall trees of east texas turn into short, ugly ones by the time you hit I-35. then it's just grass. then dirt.

houston and dallas are southern. san antonio, austin, and fort worth are inbetween. and el paso is the west.
