A THIRD of Americans agree with Marjorie Taylor Greene’s call for ‘national divorce’: 47% of Republicans support bid to split red states, according to shocking poll
- Republican firefighter Marjorie Taylor Greene says US needs ‘national separation’ between red and blue states
- A shocking new poll shows that a third of Americans agree with this idea
- Two-thirds of independent voters do not agree that there should be a divorce
A surprising number of Americans agree with Georgia’s hackneyed Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene that the United States needs a “national division” that would separate red and blue states and downsize the federal government.
Thirty-four percent of the 1,000 likely voters polled by Rasmussen Reports said they agree with Greene, but still 57 percent disagree with the premise.
Broken down by party, Republicans are split on the issue by just a 5 percent margin of those agreeing and disagreeing, while as many as 26 percent of Democrats say they agree with the pro-Trump Republican congressman.

A shocking new poll shows a third of Americans agree with this sentiment from the Georgia Republican
On President’s Day, Trump’s acolyte was decidedly unimpressed by President Joe Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine, claiming in a tweet that it’s time for the US to be divided.
“We need a national separation,” the Republican from Georgia wrote on Twitter on Monday.
“We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” she insisted. “Everyone I talk to says this.”
“From the sick and disgusting issues of culture shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s insidious America Last policies, we’re done,” Taylor Greene emphasized Republican sentiment toward the opposing side.
A majority of Democrats — 67 percent — say they oppose MTG’s idea, while 42 percent of Republicans also disagree.
A quarter of independent voters polled between February 21 and 23 are in favor of a “national divorce,” but 63 percent oppose it.
Overall, 9 percent of all voters are unsure about the radical idea of dividing the country into Republican and Democratic states.
The last time the states broke up based on ideology was the American civil war which began on April 12, 1861 and ravaged the country for more than four bloody years with an average of 500 deaths per day.
Recent polls show deep polarization between red (Republican) and blue (Democratic) states. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.) wants a “national divorce” between the two parties
Voters go to the polls to cast their ballots, but do most Americans want a “national divorce” as one poll indicates?
But the mere fact that more than a third of the country is open to the potential shows the growing sense of resentment voters feel toward the opposing side.
There’s a lot that goes into whether a state is red or blue, such as recent elections, current leaders, and historical voting records of those who live in the jurisdiction.
Currently, 29 of the 50 states are led by Republican governors, and 24 states have voted for Republicans in at least three or four of the last four presidential elections. Taking into account the 2022 senate election, 27 states voted red.
All in all, the country would be fairly evenly split, with a slight bias toward Republican states outnumbering Democratic states. However, the population disparity would be huge, with the more populous states leaning towards the Democrats and those with more landmass but fewer people leaning towards the Republicans.
