On February 20, 2023, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene posted on Twitter that we need a national divorce in which we separate red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. This sparked an ongoing discussion about national divorce.
Shortly thereafter, The Economist/YouGov conducted a poll March 4-7, 2023 in which they asked about national divorce. Axios/Ipsos conducted a poll which asked about national divorce March 10-13, 2023.
