Last month Georgia Republican Rep, Marjorie Taylor Greene launched a ruckus when she called for a “national divorce.”
“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” Greene tweeted on Feb. 20. “Everyone I talk to says this.”
“From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s (sic) traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

Greene was apparently triggered by President Joe Biden’s decision to visit Ukraine on the President’s Day holiday in America.
She got plenty of blowback, especially from the left.
Yet a new poll finds that many Americans agree with her.
The Daily Mail reported on Friday that a “shocking” number of Americans side with Greene in wanting to call it quits.
Ipsos’s poll of 1,018 people found that 20% want to file for that divorce — the equivalent of 66 million Americans.
Republicans are more keen on splitting up the superpower than Democrats,” the Daily Mail noted. Overall, 25% of GOP voters “want to break away and form a right-leaning nation.” That compared to just 16% of Democrats.

“The fifth of Americans who want to split is far less than is needed to make it politically viable, but nonetheless shows how ever-more conservatives and liberals are fed up with sharing a country with each other,” the report continued.
Twenty percent of independents also want to split.
“Ipsos found that support for splitting was higher among men, people who make $50,000 or less each year, and those living in the South and West of the country,” the Daily Mail reported.
“The sheer fact that one-fifth of the country is open to the potential shows the growing sentiment of resentment voters feel toward the opposing party.”
