🤔 CALEXIT? Cali contemplating succeeding the union? 🤦🏿♂️ - According to a new Reuters - Ipsos poll, a record number of disaffected, Hillary-supporting Californians now support secession from the United States because they're just so "triggered" by Trump's victory. If successful, California would become the single largest "safe space" in the world. Per the poll, 1 in every 3 Californians now support a "peaceful withdrawal from the union," which is a substantial increase from the 20% who favored such a withdrawal the last time a similar poll was conducted in 2014. 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 percent support rate is sharply higher than the last time the poll asked Californians about secession, in 2014, when one-in-five or 20 percent favored it around the time Scotland held its independence referendum and voted to remain in the United Kingdom. California also far surpasses the national average favoring secession, which stood at 22 percent, down from 24 percent in 2014. Of course, as most of the country made a shift to the right in November's election, California continued it's steady march to the left with Democrats now controlling a super-majority in both houses of the legislature. As Reuters notes, many Cali residents felt triggered by Trump's promises to actually enforce immigration laws and repeal Obamacare with one Democrat consultant saying that "many citizens believe it would be smarter to leave than fight." "I don't think it's likely to happen, but if things get really bad it could be an option," said Stephen Miller, 70, a retired transportation planner who lives in Sacramento and told pollsters he "tended to support" secession. "I don't think it's likely to happen, but if things get really bad it could be an option," said Stephen Miller!!
