¡Viva Secession!

Writes Kirkpatrick Sale of the Middlebury Institute:

Bill Regnery, a long-time supporter of the secessionist movement, has sent me notice  of a nationwide poll on popular support for secession as measured by a poll by the well-respected Public Policy Polling outfit of Raleigh, NC, that Wikipedia has described as “Democratic-leaning and accurate.”  The poll, taken among 700 people in late November and issued on December 4, 2012, has a margin of +/- 3.7 points.

Here is a report he sent of  the “interesting  to remarkable” poll results, along with pertinent comments:

Secession is viewed positively/sympathetically by:

46% of Hispanics, 14 million, and 31%  of whites, 49 million.
We need to crank this irredentist sentiment into our calculations.

50% of conservatives.
This is by far the most support from by far the largest group, 41 million, of ideological supporters. By comparison 19% of liberals, 14 million, fall into this category.

35% of women and only 29% of men.
We should discard the notion that women cannot be recruited.

50% of 18-29 year olds.
We need to hunt where the ducks are.

The lessons are obvious:  Let’s go hunting.
