To say that Texas is not happy with the direction of the country under Barack Obama would be an understatement.
The state has launched dozens of lawsuits against the federal government under Obama on issues ranging from land use to public bathrooms.
The Obama years have also seen a sharp rise in the popularity and membership of the Texas separatist movement. Texas is unique in that before joining the United States via contract, Texas was a proud and independent nation. That independent, individualist mindset still runs deep in a culture where many see themselves as Texans first and Americans second.
Now a new poll by Public Policy Polling shows what could be the catalyst for a full on press by Texas to leave the US and re-establish the Republic.
The Houston Chronicle has the shocking details…
According to poll results from Public Policy Polling released Tuesday, three out of five Texans who support Donald Trump said they would support seceding from America if Hillary Clinton becomes president.
But it isn’t just Trump supporters…
Data from the left-leaning polling firm shows that Trump leads Clinton by a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent in Texas. This is far from the landslide win for Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. Four years ago, Romney beat President Barack Obama 57.2 percent to 41.4 percent.
According to the polling results from PPP, only one out of four Texans support seceding from America generally. But when faced with the possibility of a President Hillary Clinton, a majority of Texans said they’d rather leave.
Should Texas stay or go? Let us know in our TEXIT Poll.
