Conservatives Handling the Election Poorly

49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.

Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren't sure.

Blaming the election on an organization that no longer exists? The sad part is that I'm not surprised. As far as the secession bit, I seem to remember conservatives being against "cutting-and-running" a few years ago. Seceding from your own country seems like the ultimate cut-and-run, not to mention being childish and cowardly.
