However I was two weeks before their "season" started. I was at Silver Dollar City and noticed a lot of southern accents as well. So at least in the Table Rock region there are still many traditional southerners.
"You all" isn't Southern. "Y'all" is Southern. And Cleveland is not in the Northeast...it's in the Midwest, specifically the Upper Midwest.

You are actually WAY off. The actual population of the cities constitute for maybe 1/10 of the population of Missouri.

Oh I see, using the cities definition again and excluding their metro areas. Their metro areas, if all the relevant counties are included, hike it up to way more than 1/10. St. Louis and KC together total between 3-4 million in population if all the Missouri counties considered to be part of their metro areas are included.

y'all it was. I'm not perfect at spelling everything

Many on city data consider Clevelend to be at the edges of the northeast, I know its the upper Midwest. It's pretty north to me. Might as well be Canada to me. I can never imagine living that far north.

oh ok so if someone from Centralia Illinois which is 60 miles east of St. Louis is asked where they are from, they will say St. Louis? It is after all considered part of the metro area. HUGE parts of both metro areas area in KANSAS and ILLINOIS. I would venture to say over 1/2 of their populations....what are you trying to pull here? You are factoring in other States populations into Missouri and claiming that they are part of the cities Missouri population, lol. Take away 2 million people because they live in different states and factor that into your equation, HAHAHAHA 55%?!!?! You are so full of it, your stats are always so skewed!

MO side of metro STL = 2.3M people. MO side of KC = 1.1M. So, uh, yeah, that does constitute over half the state, Mr. uppity I was born in 1988. And re STL and KC thinking they *are* MO? Newsflash: we are. Our industry and our dollars make this state go.

Those numbers are incorrect....why do you keep lying to justify your agenda? You are adjusting the number up and ALSO just because it is classified as the "metro" area doesn't mean people consider themselves from either city. It is so ridiculous for you to say that people from areas an hour away from the actual city are from the city itself. Many have a completely separate identity!

There is nothing Midwestern about that area. I was just down there two weeks ago. Same as Bull Shoals.
