Swing State Project: Cultural Regions of Maryland

Found this map while browsing the internet. Seems pretty accurate to me, except maybe for Annapolis and that there's no real point to the sky blue region.

Remember, this map isn't based on commuting patterns or which region you self-identify with, it simply reflects the way of life, culture, and politics in each region.

Thoughts?

The guy knows his urbanized regions pretty well, but not the rural. Giving "Hispanic Maryland" and "Delaware Maryland" their own little regions, but not Allegany and Garrett County erodes some of the map's credibility in my mind. There is more diversity in the rural regions than this map reflects.

There's also far too many stereotypes/generalizations.

You mean you aren't constantly at arms with the "creative class" for control of the state because you live in old Baltimore, have low educational attainment, are decended from WVians and Southerners, drink Natty Boh, and listen to 98 rock?

Hehe.

You described me better than you believe (minus the low educational attainment)!

I thought it was pretty good - sure he gives short shrift to say, the catholic ethnic component of working class baltimore, he doesn't distinguish the lower eastern shore from the upper eastern shore (maybe that distinction is not so important anymore), etc but its better and more careful than lots of discussions of geography and politics in Maryland.
