A shocking poll conducted by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia (UVA) has revealed that most Trump voters and a significant number of Biden voters are in favor of seceding from the Union and splitting the country.
52% of Trump voters and 41% of Biden voters “at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union,” according to a shocking poll conducted by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia.
“Significant numbers of both Trump and Biden voters show a willingness to consider violating democratic tendencies and norms if needed to serve their priorities,” the pollsters explained. “Roughly 2 in 10 Trump and Biden voters strongly agree it would be better if a ‘President could take needed actions without being constrained by Congress or courts,’ and roughly 4 in 10 (41%) of Biden and half (52%) of Trump voters at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union.”
As the Gateway Pundit reported this afternoon, “Democrats are aligning themselves with anti-American policies of censorship, destruction of billions in wealth, murder of those in their way (remember it was four Trump supporters who were murdered on Jan. 6), aligning with fascist groups like BLM and Antifa, election theft, arming the Taliban enemy with $83 billion in US military equipment, using a pandemic to steal American freedoms, false arrests of individuals for fake crimes, government harassment through the courts, and imprisonment based on fake crimes in kangaroo courts, etc.”
A report from Mediaite on the subject emphasized a similar YouGov poll conducted in June which found that 66% of Republicans in southern states support seceding from the United States, noting that Joe Biden’s recent failures in Afghanistan, as well as his handling of COVID-19 have rendered his “reunification” platform to be ineffective as his approval ratings among Americans have gone “underwater.”
The idea that the nation’s political divide has become so toxic that we should prepare from some sort of “national divorce” has largely been left to clever thought experiments best left for dinner parties and ironically detached columns. However, we’ve now arrived at a point where more than half of Trump voters “somewhat agree” that the time for secession is nigh.
Comedian and well known liberal Sarah Silverman recently echoed this call for a national divorce, suggesting the country separate into two or three countries based on political affiliation and COVID-19 policies.
