You may have heard about this poll so I'll just post the main finding instead of quoting a lot of text:
One in four Americans want their state to secede from the U.S., but why?

The above percentages combine Strongly Support and Tend To Support.

I went to the filterable chart at Reuters and found that only 9.7% of Americans strongly support peaceful secession. I expected these folks to be mostly old, white and Republican, so I selected those options (white, 60+ and Voted For Romney) and the numbers are surprising: Strongly Support only gets 8.6%.

The 18-29 age group (12.9%) and the 30-39 (16%) age group have the largest percentage of Strongly Support responses.
