3 of 5 Trump supporters in Texas would secede if Clinton elected?

Texas, like Quebec, often threatens to secede, but there may be a difference. From Justin Holcomb at Townhall

According to recent poll numbers from Public Policy Polling, three out of five Texans who support Trump said they would rather secede from the United States than stand behind a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton.

Texans, along with many southerners, support seceding from America generally. But when Clinton is added to the mix, the majority of Texans say they’d rather leave. More.

Reality check: Quebec holds Canada to ransom because the country would fall apart if Quebec seceded. Check a map. Quebec can be a have-not province for centuries and force the majority of other provinces to support it.

Texas, by contrast, is booming. As jobs dribble to China, it could be stuck supporting permanent have-not states where hillbilly heroin and “helping professionals” are much more plentiful than jobs. And Texans may have had no hand in creating the policies that brought about such a state of affairs.

  • Go Texas! But build a wall!

    No, Canada would not fall apart were Quebec to secede, in fact the country would be better off. That is the lie to justify the federal government caving in to every demand of what amounts to a spoiled child throwing a tantrum. First of all were Quebec to secede, it would not have the same area it now has and would be much smaller. Second, it won’t happen, because again it is all bluff. Allowing the bluff to work is the fault of Ottawa.

    As for Texas one problem I see is the same as Western Canada in that it has been infiltrated by leftists from elsewhere to the point of having enough votes to turn Texas into the same leftist hellhole that they left. There are already pockets in Texas where you might think you were in a leftist hellhole instead of Texas.

    And at least one North Carolinian as well.

    Texas forced a clause in the Union agreement where it can leave if the Federal Government tries to enforce it’s will on the State or make the condition in the Union warrant leaving.

    Texas has the weather for Tourism , the Gulf ports where many Cruise ship dock, 14 Shipping ports where 11 have Highway and Railway links, farming and Livestock commerce plus the Oil industry to export it from those ports along with re-activating dormant wells if needed.

        If I could find a job in my field in Texas I would go there in a heartbeat.

  • Daviddowntown

    If that was my leader I’d vote to secede.
