    north-south thing

    What is "North-South thing" saying in the following?

    It's hard to understand what customers want when you can only talk to them in sample focus groups or understand their desires indirectly through conversations with retail gatekeepers or through high-level data---'Oh, so this author is more popular in Boston than in Atlanta. I wonder if it's a North-South thing?'

    Thank you.

    In the US, we had the Civil War, which was between the Northern States and the Southern States. The war ended a long time ago, but there remains a cultural divide.
