The South was the second most well-defined region (after the Northeast). Texas and Oklahoma were frequently put in a "Frontier" or "Southwest" region, while Missouri was included in the South almost 40% of the time. The fight over Texas was particularly divisive,
with almost an exact tie between its inclusion in the South or the Frontier.
Notes on Texas:
6% put Texas in a "Big Sky" grouping with the Great Plains states
9% put Texas in a "South Pacific"/"Pacific" grouping with Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii and/or California
43% put Texas in a "Mountain" or "Southwestern" grouping, collectively termed "Frontier"
42% put Texas in a grouping with the South.
Respondents from the South and Northeast were the most likely to include Texas in the South.
Respondents from the Pacific, Frontier and Midwest were more likely to put Texas in the Frontier.
While responses from outside the United States were disqualified, almost all put Texas in the South.
