secede texas

PPP has some interesting little tidbits in their new poll. One that stood out was that more Democrats than Republicans support an election-rigging scheme to allocate electoral voters by Congressional District instead of giving them to the statewide winner, by a margin of 28% to 25%.

but wait there's more

Public Policy Polling:

PPP's newest Texas poll finds that, at least for now, Hillary Clinton could win the state in 2016... she would have a decent chance of winning Kentucky if she makes another White House bid. [...]

Support for secession in the state has increased since President Obama's reelection. 20% of voters say they'd like to leave the country to 67% who support staying in the union. That's up from 14% who wanted to secede when we polled on the issue in September of 2011. 35% of Republicans support exiting.

So Texas voters could very well support Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, in 2016 while simultaneously warming to the idea of seceding from the rest of us.

Solution: Allow that 20% of anti-Obama Texans to strand themselves on an island somewhere, while the sane ones vote Hillary into office. See? Bipartisan solutions aren't that hard to find.
