A groundbreaking study from the University of Virginia’s Project Home Fire has unveiled the truth about current American political sentiment: a substantial portion of Americans, cutting across party lines, are now ready for their states to leave the Union. This development resonates strongly with the already high levels of support for Texas independence, known as TEXIT, among Texas voters.
Federal Landscape: A Turning Point
The University of Virginia study, which surveyed approximately 2,000 registered voters, discovered that over 40% of Trump supporters and 30% of Biden supporters are in favor of their states seceding from the United States. This is not a marginal or fringe opinion; it’s a considerable portion of the American electorate. The data indicates a turning point in federal sentiment, suggesting that the idea of state secession is becoming a mainstream discussion.
TEXIT: A Texas-Sized Mandate
In Texas, the call for independence is not just a sentiment but a mandate. A recent SurveyUSA poll revealed that 66% of likely Texas voters desire independence. This robust support has been further validated as FiveThirtyEight awarded SurveyUSA an A+ rating, confirming the poll’s credibility.
Convergence: Federal and Texas Trends
The significant support for state secession across the United States amplifies the TEXIT movement’s message and mission. The University of Virginia study serves as a federal echo to the already loud call for Texas independence. This convergence of federal and Texas-specific data provides a compelling foundation for the Texas Nationalist Movement’s ongoing advocacy efforts. It also opens the door for a bipartisan approach to Texas independence, as both Trump and Biden supporters across the map have shown openness to the idea of state secession.
The Texas Nationalist Movement’s advocacy for Texas independence is now part of a broader, federal shift towards the acceptance of state secession. This alignment offers a robust platform for further dialogue and action, setting the stage for a transformative period in Texas and American politics. With high voter turnout expected and valuable insights from other independence movements, the political landscape in Texas and the United States is ripe for significant change.
