Blog Running – ‘Which of the 11 American nations do you live in’?

11 nations

‘Red states and blue states’?

‘Flyover country and the coasts’?

‘How simplistic’.

‘Colin Woodard, a reporter at the Portland Press
Herald and author of several books, says North
America can be broken neatly into 11 separate
nation-states, where dominant cultures explain our
voting behaviors and attitudes toward everything
from social issues to the role of government’.

“The borders of my eleven American nations are
reflected in many different types of maps —
including maps showing the’

‘distribution of linguistic dialects’,

‘the spread of cultural artifacts’,

‘the prevalence of different religious
denominations’,

‘and the county-by-county breakdown of voting in
virtually every hotly contested presidential race
in our history.”

‘Woodard writes in the Fall 2013 issue of Tufts
University’s alumni magazine, “Our continent’s
famed mobility has been reinforcing, not
dissolving, regional differences, as people
increasingly sort themselves into like-minded
communities.”
