Now here’s some good news! One out of five people think the country is too big. A whopping 17% think that secession may be a GREAT idea. Of course, since many state Representatives, Senators, and Governors still pee their pants when the Federal Government threatens to take away funding of turn their airport into a no-fly zone at the mere mention of Nullification, we are a long way off from a single state actually seceeding from the union.
We can hope, though….
From the article:
Some residents in Maryland, California, Michigan and Colorado are looking to secede from their respective states, and nearly one-out-of-five Americans think that’s a good idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 17% of American Adults say they would vote for their section of their state to secede and form a new state. Seventy percent (70%) would vote to keep things the way they are, but another 13% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Just 22% believe sections of individual states have the right to secede and form a new state. Fifty-five percent (55%) disagree, but a sizable 23% are not sure.
Only 24% think it is at least somewhat likely that some states will break up into more than one state over the next 25 years, with nine percent (9%) who feel it is Very Likely. Sixty-eight (68%) believe such breakups are unlikely to occur, including 28% who say they’re Not At All Likely.
