17. The panhandle is much more conservative than the peninsula. My family has been on the Georgia line

 

with Florida since 1817 when it was still Spanish, first settlers and all that stuff.

I've watched things get better but that region still retains the basics of rural life with self-sufficiency, pride, and independence.

Those traits may not be compatible with urban/suburban life with government in charge of everything.
