Secession petitions: Professor Neal Caren maps secessionist sentiment

Neal Caren, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, has given a visual aid to see the growth and spread of the budding secessionist movement.

Caren, using data collected from the WhiteHouse.gov web site where petitions to secede have been filed, has made a color-coded map showing where signators to the petitions originate, by county.

The darker the pink, the more people filing a petition.

His report on the process and what it shows can be found by clicking here.
