    Default 66% of Southern State Republicans want to secede from the Union

    https://www.mediaite.com/politics/sh...united-states/



    A shocking YouGov poll found that 66% of Republicans in southern states want to secede from the United States.

    The survey, by YouGov in conjunction with BrightLineWatch, looked at the current political climate in America. The most stunning question concerned support or opposition for the state in which respondents lived in “seceding from the United States to join a new union with [list of states in new union]?”

    Five prospective new unions were constructed (by region) “and inserted the relevant states for respondents into the question wording above. For example, a participant from California in our survey would be asked about joining a new union along with Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska,” explains BrightLineWatch. These sets are provided below:

    Pacific: California, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska
    Mountain: Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico
    South: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee
    Heartland: Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Nebraska
    Northeast: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia

    As you can see in the graphic below, the Southern state respondents embraced the notion of secession most aggressively. 43% of those who live in Mountain states were in support of secession:

    As in our previous report, we caution that this survey item reflects initial reactions by respondents about an issue that they are very unlikely to have considered carefully. Secession is a genuinely radical proposition and expressions of support in a survey may map only loosely onto willingness to act toward that end. We include the question because it taps into respondents’ commitments to the American political system at the highest level and with reference to a concrete alternative (regional unions).

    A similar poll was conducted just weeks after the January 6th attack on the Capitol, and results were similar. But six months later, any notion that political frustrations have cooled seems to be misguided.

    I'll move to any state that secedes. There was a communist or globalist takeover of our government. We are under occupation. This is for real.

    They admittedly spy on our private texts. They admittedly censor and dictate what Facebook and Twitter can post. They work with YouTube to ban helpful information on COVID-19. They invade our private homes with vaccine pushers.

    The DNC and their MSM routinely demonize average citizens who disagree with their politics. They punish conservatives while they excuse leftists. They ignore commie riots while they create phantom racists. They sow divisions of all kinds, with race as the primary one.

    They claim that there is systemic racism while they praise BLM and CRT. They invite the UN to study our "racial problems". Look at the human rights violations in the countries that will do this. A peaceful separation looks good about now.

    If this occurs and denounce communism and every degenerate socialist item that stems from it then its a candidate to be under the protection of the Holy Spirit.

    I'd love to see it in my lifetime. Would be a Berlin Wall moment.

    Idk if I see this happening. The South is made up of some of the poorest states in the country and Texas will be blue by the next election or so.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Some of those "poor" Southern states are as rich as some European countries. That aside, this is not about geography. It's about liberty and rights, but a *soft* secession may be the best route to take. Maybe the growing sanctuary movement will put Slow Joe in his place.

    Valid point about the richness of states.

    It’s not about geography but the hardcore republican states are the South. Those are the states I see trying to secede, not the ones that are borderline blue/red which Texas unfortunately is and is growing more blue each year. Maybe I’m bias because I’m Texan but I feel like Texas is a strong determining factor for whether states try and secede or not.

    You're right in that Texas is a main player. It might be hard to tell if they'll be Blue or Red. There are varied factors. My guess is that they'll be Purple at most.

    Mexican-American votes aren't guaranteed one way or another. Many of them have conservative, traditional values. Woke culture turns off many of them. It's antithetical to their religious views.

    It’s not the Mexican American vote that I think will cause Texas to turn blue. It’s Austin, and all the migrants from the pacific coast that are moving to Texas. I’m not sure if this is being heard nationwide or not but Austin is literally becoming the next L.A. Over the last couple of years celebrities have been moving to/visiting Austin more and more. It’s going to cause a lot of people to start moving to these outskirts of major cities. (Which is where most of the red votes come in)

    That is my prediction at least.

    That's a valid point. Austin is a Blue island in a Red sea. It's a Lone Star Berkeley. Maybe voters, who escape California and New York (like Snake Plimpton), won't bring their voting patterns with them.
