As the Scottish vote to secede from the UK failed, the idea of secession has been picked up by almost a quarter of Americans who say they would be open to the idea of their respective state leaving the Union.

A new Reuters poll, which took place between Aug. 23 and Sept. 16, found 23.9 percent of Americans strongly support the notion of their state breaking away from the larger US.  However, on the other side of this argument, of those polled, 53.3 percent strongly opposed the idea.

The idea to secede seems to be split down party lines too, as more Republicans, 29.7 percent of those polled, support their state standing on its own, while 21 percent of Democrats who were polled supported the idea for their state.

Many Republicans cited their dissatisfaction with the way the Obama administration has handled various issues as to why they liked the idea of secession.  These issues range from the current administration’s handling of ISIS in the Middle East, to the healthcare reforms put in place recently.

Others said they don’t believe Washington gets anything done, and they feel if their state would break away, things would be better off.  Roy Gustafson, 61, of South Carolina, told the Sun Sentinel“I don’t think it makes a whole lot of difference anymore which political party is running things. Nothing gets done… The state would better off handling things on its own.”

One state that has taken the idea of secession seriously is Texas, where a group known as the Texas Nationalist Movement has been looking into ways to leave the US behind in hopes of establishing their own nation.

Daniel Miller is the director for the TNM who was excited for the Scottish vote to breakaway from the UK.  Miller said, according to USA Today, “We’re excited that they are able to have a voice, to be able to go to the polls and voice their political will on the issue of self-determination…”
