Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) posted a poll on Twitter asking Americans whether it is time for the country to split.
“Should America have a national divorce?” Greene tweeted on Monday.

On Wednesday, Greene touched on the issue again in a tweet.
“The horrid state of our union since Biden took office has had so many people asking me about a National Divorce. ND is not civil war like Antifa/BLM incitement over the past few years, it’s a civil legal process,” Greene said.
She continued, “It’s a real issue bc Americans don’t like communism.”

According to a recent poll from the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, the majority of Americans who voted for former President Donald Trump think red states should secede from the union, as IJR reported.
The survey showed that “roughly 4 in 10 (41%) of Biden and half (52%) of Trump voters at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union.”
UVA Center for Politics Director Larry J. Sabato said the “divide between Trump and Biden voters is deep, wide, and dangerous. The scope is unprecedented, and it will not be easily fixed.”
The Washington Post noted earlier this week Biden’s approval ratings have fallen significantly in recent months. The outlet’s average of the polls since the beginning of September found 44% of Americans approve of the president’s job approval, compared to 49% who disapprove.
Earlier this month, Nate Cohn of The New York Times reported that Biden’s approval ratings have declined among key Democratic groups, as IJR reported.
According to Cohn, the ratings have “declined considerably in recent months, eroding or even reversing decades-long patterns in public opinion.”
The report asked the question of whether “that slide is a momentary dip – a fluke of a tough run of headlines- or a warning sign of even deeper dissatisfaction among Democratic-leaning voters.”
