Nearly a third of Americans – and 41 percent of Republicans - think the United States would be better off, or not affected at all, if California seceded from the union, a new poll shows.
The Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey, released Wednesday, found that 18 percent think it'd be good if the Golden State decided to break away; 13 percent think a so-called Calexit wouldn't make any difference at all.
Among Republicans, however, 25 percent think it'd be good for the country if deep-blue California broke away; 16 percent said it wouldn't have any impact.
Most Americans disagree: 60 percent think a California secession would be bad for America, the survey found.
The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
