I can answer the question as a member of the 50 states and an observer of political change. In my opinion, Texas would oppose any attempt to split up its present formation. If you look at American history, the eastern original colonies were influenced by English rule. If you look at Texas history, this territory was under Spanish or Mexican influence. In laws, customs, and traditions, huge differences exist between English and Mexican/Spanish influence. If Texas would be split up, it would lose much of its influence as one of the largest states with a large population. I've never seen any state or group willingly give up power, so I think a citizen would be happier keeping the present arrangement.
