It would be OK with me if all those who favor it decide to leave

I ask a question about secession.

Is that really what the GOP base is about these days?

I get an answer.

Do you think Texas would be better off as an independent nation or as part of the United States of America?

US: 61
Independent nation: 35

Democrats: US 82, Ind 15
Republicans: US 48, Ind 48
Independents: US 55, Ind 40

That sound you hear is me officially ceasing any attempt to try to understand the mind of a Republican primary voter. Hey, remember when not wearing a flag pin meant that you were a traitor who hated America? Boy, those were the days.

There's more polling data at that link, much of which is summarized by BOR. You can go there and see the numbers, for what they're worth. I just wanted to marvel at this particular factoid.
