There's a new PPP poll making the rounds showing that Hillary Clinton could win Texas in 2016. According to the poll, 50 percent of Texas voters have a favorable opinion of Clinton, and she currently holds narrow leads in hypothetical match ups against Republicans Marco Rubio and Chris Christie.
Whatever. I don't find hypothetical match ups this far in advance all that meaningful. But what really jumped out at me from this poll was this:
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.
Hmm. Wait a minute. Twenty percent of Texas voters want to secede from the union at the same time legal and undocumented immigrants make up about 20 percent of the state's work force? So why don't we just swap the citizenship of those 20 percent of Texans who want to leave America with those 20 percent of Texans who want to become Americans? Problem solved!
