(Tea Party 247) – A brand new poll is indicating that more than a quarter of Americans alive today, living in this country right this very moment, have so had enough of the current state of the Union that they are totally supportive of dividing the nation into sovereign regional unions.
According to Big League Politics, a whopping 29 percent of American citizens are supportive of their own region of the country seceding from the Union and becoming its own sovereign country. The polling that reveals this shocking new trend in thinking among the citizenry was conducted by Bright Line Watch, which is a neoliberal group.
The polling suggests that support for secessionist ideas is exploding with an incredible increase of support over the last 10 years. Back in 2014, only 24 percent of Americans were in favor of secession. That’s a pretty big increase, right? Folks, this is how far divided along political lines we’ve all become. Many of your neighbors believe that the Union needs to be chucked out because the divide is too great to overcome.
We no longer can come together over a shared set of values. What a sad state our nation is in right now.
The group of individuals most in support of seceding from the Union are southern Republicans. Almost 50 percent of that demographic supports splitting off into regional secession. It seems that support for this particular idea had a lot to do with which party is predominant in a given area.
“Only 10% of Americans “strongly” support the notion of regional secession, a development to be expected for such a drastic proposal. Nearly twice as many respondents- 19%- somewhat support the idea of regional secession. Republicans were far more likely to support the idea of national division- although remarkable, independents were the most supportive of the concept overall,” the BLP report notes.
“Democrats in the Pacific Northwest and California were the demographic most supportive of secession outside of the southern United States, with 41% supporting a regional secession. The political homogeneity of the three most western continental states could make such a prospect the most realistic in coming decades,” the report continues.
Bright Line Watch got this particular set of data by querying 2,700 Americans across the country from February into the month of January.
It really is hard to picture any region of our country actually going through with plans to secede from the Union any time in the near future, especially with economic ramifications to consider. But what this poll reveals is that we are more divided than we’ve ever been before in this country with the conservative and liberal worldviews no longer being able to find any sort of common ground or shared set of values to uphold.
We won’t likely be experiencing any sort of major unity anytime soon, either, which is a real bummer. How did things get so bad? Why are we so hateful toward each other and unable to find common ground in our shared human experience? These are just some questions worth considering.
