We had a local author who appeared out of nowhere at our local meetings in full support of Romney/Ryan and repealing Obamacare. In the cross examination, I suggested he was ‘very optimistic’ about Republicans, and asked his feeling on nullification.
It was unclear he even understood what nullification is.
So it’s all well and good to be “for secession” but the action is in popular resistance to the Federal Government via nullification, or any one governor using the podium to resist this thing or that.
It’s good that the idea of secession is at least talked about, but I wouldn’t read too much into these polling numbers. Many if not most of these newly minted secessionists were gung-ho supporters of the ultra-nationalist Bush regime. How many of them would now be calling for secession had Romney won? I suspect that most of them will be rallying in 2016 behind whoever is the next Republican big thing – Marco Rubio, for example.
