Let’s break down the Texas results. The first substantial question was, “Would you support Texas peacefully becoming an independent country along with other conservative states? Or not?”
Support for exiting the union polled highest in Texas, with regular voters showing 66% support and voters who vote only in presidential elections showing 63%. Even when non-voters were included,…Read the rest
