More Californians are now hoping their state secedes from the United States, a new poll shows.
About 32 percent of Californians want to create their own country, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found, including many Democrats who are frustrated with the election of President Trump. Pollsters surveyed 500 Californians between Dec. 6 and Jan. 19.
Nationally, 22 percent of respondents favor secession, they found.
The movement — dubbed “Calexit” — began after Trump won the 2016 presidential election.
