New Survey Answers Question, ‘Is Louisiana a Southern State?’

Allison McCann, SurveyMonkey

It may be a simple matter of fact for Louisiana residents, Louisiana is the South, the South is Louisiana. However, what do Southerners think?

SurveyMonkey is known for conducting numerous surveys on a wide variety of subjects. recently used the survey engine to ask people, “Which States Do You Consider Part of the South?”

The website tweeted the results:


Louisiana is red hot as a Southern state. Whew! 80 percent of the population believes Louisiana is, indeed, Southern.

Other states considered to be part of the South are Alabama and Georgia, at 90 percent of the population, with Mississippi pulling in 80 percent. Just making the cut with over 60 percent are Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida and North Carolina in the eyes of people who claim to be Southerners.

States considered southern by at least half of the population are Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Virginia. Coming in at 25 percent or above are Oklahoma, Missouri and West Virginia.

And finally, in the “receiving votes” category we find Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Illinois, Indianapolis, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.

Here’s something you may not know. According to the Census Bureau the states considered regionally South are: Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.

Apparently, everyone wants to be on the South’s team.
