The Superregion of the Mid-Atlantic is the geographically smallest, and densest, in the nation. The corridor between New York City and Washington DC, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, Trenton and Newark, very nearly constitutes continuous urban area. The superregion is divided into two regions: Pennsylvania, and the Atlantic Seaboard, each constituting roughly half the population.
The superregion is named mainly for the census bureau division lying between the South and New England. The official definition, however, includes New York and excludes Maryland and Delaware.
The Mid-Atlantic is, numerically, quite Democratic, with Democrats holding a 54-46 registration advantage over the Republicans. This advantage, however, is tempered by the split between the regions: In Pennsylvania, Democrats hold only a 51-49 advantage, while the advantage in the Atlantic Seaboard approaches 58-42. Due to this split, Republicans, while they have had success locally in Pennsylvania, and used Pennsylvania to capture the Governorship, are relatively unlikely to win races in the Atlantic Seaboard.
