A poll conducted by Survey USA of New Hampshire voters found that the overwhelming majority are extremely frustrated with DC politicians and are very open to nullification and peaceful separation. The Foundation for New Hampshire Independence, a non-profit organization, funded the poll, which asked similar questions in seven other states. Below are some of the highlights of the survey:
When asked whether NH should secede today, 29% said yes, 14% were unsure, and only 58% said that we should not leave the union today. Among Republicans, 52% want to secede today, only 11% are unsure, and only 38% said that we should remain in the union.
Elected leaders in the Federal Government have my best interests in mind when passing legislation: Agree or disagree?
Only 4% strongly agree and 66% disagree (somewhat or strongly)!
It is common knowledge that the only reason for the government to exist is to protect our natural rights, including the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. If the government does not protect our rights, and if the government is the main violator of our rights (which is the case), why should the federal government exist?
Politicians in Washington, DC violate our rights more than they protect our rights. Agree or disagree?
65% agree and only 4% strongly disagree! (27% somewhat disagree)
People in the United States are growing more divided over important issues, such as LGBT rights, guns, abortion, election integrity, race relations, involvement in foreign wars, climate change, immigration, etc. Agree or disagree?
91% agree and only 6% disagree!
If the citizens of the United States continue to get more divided on major issues, I fear that political violence will increase. Agree or disagree?
89% agree (somewhat or strongly) and only 7% disagree.
The federal government’s financial decisions and economic regulations hurt our livelihoods and could lead to inflation and bankruptcy. Agree or disagree?
79% agree (somewhat or strongly) and only 14% disagree.
I trust my state government more than I trust the federal government. Agree or disagree?
63% agree (somewhat or strongly) and only 24% disagree.
Only 59% said that they would not volunteer any of their time to support the cause of New Hampshire secession.
64% agree that federal laws are incompatible with NH’s freedom culture.
When asked how the federal government should respond if a state did declare independence from the union and announce that it would govern itself, only 3% of respondents said they would support military action against a state that chose to secede. 56% said they would let the states go without any repercussions whatsoever.
The independence movement in Texas is stronger than ever, as well. The Texas GOP convention officially approved secession and placed it into their party platform with 90% support from Republicans. Independence movements from California to Florida are also experiencing amazing growth in this politically divided climate that shows no signs of slowing down.
