California wants to secede From The US

One in every three California residents supports the most populous U.S. state’s peaceful withdrawal from the union, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, many of them Democrats strongly opposed to Trump’s ascension to the country’s highest office.

The 32 per cent support rate is sharply higher than the last time the poll asked Californians about secession, in 2014, when one in five or 20 per cent favoured it when Scotland held its independence referendum and voted to remain in the United Kingdom.


California has a higher percentage of people who support secession compared to the national average, which is 22%, and has declined from 24% in 2014. A poll conducted among over 14,000 adults across the country, including 500 Californians, between December 6 and January 19 found that secession is a settled matter in the US, but there is still a desire to break away in some parts of the country, especially in Texas.

The term “Calexit” has been coined for the secession movement in California. Although secession is not likely to happen, some people, such as Stephen Miller, a retired transportation planner, see it as an option if things get worse. According to Rubly, 68, there are several issues that could trigger Californians, and if they are not handled appropriately, there could be severe consequences. The poll has a margin of error of one percentage point nationally and five percentage points in California.   Full Story

 Californians want to

A minor political group in California called “New California” has gained popularity on social media after calling for the central, mostly rural counties of the state to secede from the rest of California. Unlike previous movements such as “Calexit,” which aimed to secede from the country after the election of President Donald Trump, the group is focused on leaving the Golden State.
The founders of New California, who gathered for a reading of their Declaration of Independence from California, claim that the state has been ungovernable for a long time due to high taxes, education, and other issues. According to CBS Sacramento, Robert Paul Preston, one of the movement’s cofounders, has expressed this sentiment.

New California is a proposed state that would comprise 42 counties and a population of around 15 million, with urban areas such as Los Angeles and San Francisco remaining part of the existing California. According to the group’s website, based on 2016 population estimates, between 25 and 27 US House of Representatives seats would be relinquished by the existing California to New California. This would result in a division of California into a blue California and a red California. The founders of New California have declared their state’s ungovernability and have taken steps towards statehood, including reading their own Declaration of Independence.  Full Story
