Thirty-one percent (31%) of Texas voters say that their state has the right to secede from the United States and form an independent country.
However, the latest Rasmussen Reports poll in the state finds that if the matter was put to a vote, it wouldnt even be close. Three-fourths (75%) of Lone Star State voters would opt to remain in the United States. Only 18% would vote to secede, and seven percent (7%) are not sure what they'd choose.

If Obama can be president without proving he’s a natural born citizen of the U.S., then we have a right to secede.
Someone inform Geraldo Rivera.
They only polled 500 Texans and most of them were prolly from Dallas
I thought the right to secede was part of Texas’ agreement when they entered the Union ... not subject to opinion. Do I have this wrong, or are they really saying 69% of Texans don’t know their rights?
“Overall, seven percent (7%) of Texas voters have views that align with Americas Political Class or lean in that direction”
“the same as the national average”, apparently.
There is a “Political Class”, that has “Aligned Views”, and this is fine, we’re talking about that now?
"Only 20% of Americans believe President Obama when he says there are 57 states..."
"Only 34% of Americans believe Nancy Pelosi when she says 500 million Americans are losing their jobs every month..."
And living on welfare in subsidized housing eating food-stamp meals. “Ain’ no way we’uns is a’gonna seh-seed!”
“Do I have this wrong, or are they really saying 69% of Texans dont know their rights?”
You have it wrong. So does Gov. Perry (surprise, surprise. The deal was that Texas could split into, I believe, five separate states. The purpose being to increase its “territorial” voice in Congress. As recently as the 1930s, John Nance Garner tried to arrange just that.
How many illegals in this poll?
It depends upon which poll you look at.
Most of them were from probably from Mexico and didn’t want to live in a country with secure borders.
31% of Texans are too stupid to realize that their state cannot secede from the Union.
Ahhhh ... thanks!
No one could agree on which of the 5 new states would get the Alamo.
There was talk in the 70’s of carving a Hispanic state out of Texas but some Hispanic leaders argued that the Anglos practice of birth control and abortion would give Hispanics the majority in only a few years and thus they would have all of Texas.

now there’s an unpragmatic view. what do you think the response would be, an invasion?
this ain’t 1880.
