Attempts or aspirations of secession from the United States have been a feature of the politics of the country since its birth. The line between actions based on an alleged constitutional right of secession as opposed to actions justified by the extraconstitutional natural right of revolution has shaped the political debate. Except for the American Revolution which created the United States, no such movement, revolution or secession, has succeeded.
A 2008 Zogby International poll revealed that 22% of Americans believed while 73% did not believe that "any state or region has the right to peaceably secede and become an independent republic."
