Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted July 7th through July 10th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“Voters in all parties know that—regardless of who is in power—Washington, DC is fundamentally broken and something dramatic has to be done to change the game. The deck is stacked against the American people, and these numbers show vast majorities agree it’s time to reboot the relationship between the federal government and the states,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “The founders saw this problem was inevitable, and inserted a provision into Article V of the Constitution to empower the states to return our Republic to its original design. Clearly, the public support is there across all demographics to make this happen.”

  1. The more people learn about Article V & the Convention of States, the more optimistic they become about the future of the country. The biggest battle is educating the public, getting the word out. The founders were wise to think one day the Federal government may overreach, may become unresponsive to the people. There are two ways to amend the Constitution. One way, Congress does it. The other way is the people, the states can do it. I don’t think it’s if we will succeed, but when. When may be sooner than you think. Everyone should check out our website, ask questions. At least be aware of what it’s about so when it happens you’ll already prepared!
