New Poll Finds Two Out of Three Southern Republicans Would Support Secession

A new YouGov survey found that 66% of Republicans in the south want to secede from the United States


The survey analyzed the current state of national politics.

One of the questions asked if a participant would want their state to join one of five new regional unions. BrightLineWatch, who worked on the survey with YouGov, explained “a participant from California in our survey would be asked about joining a new union along with Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska.”

As part of its analysis, BrightLine Watch added the warning: “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).”

The results found that Republicans in the hypothetical ‘South’ union were the most in favor of seceding. Half of Independents in the region were also supportive. The region would consist of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee according to YouGov’s sets.

Democrats in the proposed Pacific region (California, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska) were similarly enthusiastic about a potential national breakup. The survey found 47% were in favor.

Generally, Democrats were the least likely of the three political affiliations to support new unions. Only 20% of Democrats in the ‘South,’ 17% of those in the ‘Mountain’ region, and 19% in the ‘Heartland’ responded in favor of seceding.

Republicans in the ‘Mountain’ region were as likely as Independents in the ‘Heartland’ to be supportive of the new unions drawn out by the survey. Both group responded 43% in favor.

The Mountain region was defined as Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. The Heartland was defined as Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Nebraska.

All the regions with a coastline, ‘Pacific,’ ‘Northeast,’ and ‘South,’ were overall more supportive of the idea of seceding than the land locked alternatives.

Mediaite reported that “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 wonder why WV would be included with the Mid western States , being in the Mid Atlantic and a Red State it’s clearly a Southern State . I wonder if it screwed up their survey results ?

  3. Cplenny says:

    Yeah, where?

  5. neilinda says:

    Division’s don’t really make sense since much of Illinois probably doesn’t want to be included with Chicago.

  6. NjaFriday says:

    She’s not going to let you get more wives, bro. It won’t work.

  9. majie2 says:

    Texas would be it’t own republic again. No other states included. Austin/Dallas/Houstan can just deal with it.

    Wife son and I are moving to a honey hole in Utah from Los Angeles.
    This state and city is shit and I am not the kind of person to run if someone is breaking into my house or damaging my property.

    Can the South trade Virginia and North Carolina for West Virginia and a 2022 draft pick?

  12. Dumber says:

    fin/swe here, who cares as long as the info is true??

  13. vanillaboy says:

    2 problems with this
    1. Liberals are moving to red states like Texas, So the Republic of Dixie (Texas and the south east) would have it’s problems too.
    2. The liberal country or countries would be screaming about “violations of International Law” or “corrupt voting” to the UN and because LIBERALS MUST FORCE YOU TO DO WHAT THEY WANT.

    We will likely have to liberate the land of Jefferson from the commies to establish a sovereign port independent of our neighbors or buddy up with Tejas. Draw straws y’all!

  15. ABCD says:

    When Timcast gets big enough, please send out reporters to investigate Jefferson (and Grater Idaho, they would make good neighbors).

    The “XX” on the seal represent being double crossed by Salem and Sacramento. Those who pay attention to this stuff want Yreka or Redding, not Boise for a new Capital. They also want to stay American!

    I am going to The United States of Mountain Jesus Land care to join?
