Trend Towards Secession

The NY Times reports:
On Sept. 30, for example, the University of Virginia Center for Politics and Project Home Fire released a survey showing unexpectedly large percentages of voters agreeing with this statement: “The situation in America is such that I would favor states seceding from the union to form their own separate country.”

Among Trump voters, 52 percent agreed, with 25 percent in strong agreement; among Biden voters, 41 percent agreed, 18 percent strongly.

Presumably, this includes those who want their own state to secede, and those who want other states to secede.

I am not in favor of secession, but we are headed in that direction, and I don't see how the trend will be reversed.
