California’s secession movement will get a second try as the state’s “war” against the Trump administration rages on several fronts.
On Monday, the California Secretary of State’s Office announced that a secession ballot proposal has been cleared to begin gathering needed signatures. It comes amid other efforts that seek to split up California.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Calexit is left — we are progressive, and that’s why we don’t like Trump,” said Marcus Ruiz Evans, one of the leaders of the Yes California campaign seeking California independence. “But there are some very hardcore Republican concepts to Calexit, including the group saying don’t waste our tax money.”
Evans said the group’s membership has risen by “about four times” to roughly 44,000 members since the election of President Donald Trump.
CNBC also reported:
If the current Calexit measure gets enough signatures to qualify, it would result in a special election in 2021 to ask California voters whether the state should become an independent country. The backers need almost 366,000 signatures of registered voters to qualify it for the ballot.
However, some analysts suggest the secession effort has a long shot passing. A Berkeley IGS Poll released in March 2017 found Californians oppose independence from the U.S. by more than 2-to-1.
