"One Quarter Of Republicans Want To Secede"

Twenty five percent of registered Republicans want their state to secede from the United States, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling. This new statistic comes just weeks after Mitt Romney’s loss prompted secession petitions from all 50 states on the White House website. Signatures grew into the hundreds of thousands on these petitions, with the state of Texas in the lead. GOP governors, however, have indicated that they will not be looking to leave the Union any time soon.
