In California, calls to leave the union have been happening for many years. Since California became a state in 1850, there have been more than 200 proposals for secession.
As a traditionally "blue" state, the majority of California residents typically vote Democratic. Since the election of Donald Trump as president, many California activists have called for a "Calexit," suggesting that the state should form its own country independent of the U.S.
