STATEHOOD
802,179 61.15%
SOVEREIGN FREE ASSOCIATED STATE
436,997 33.31%
INDEPENDENCE
72,551 5.53%

So what happens now: Congress and Obama have to okay it. Obama has already pledge to do so. Now that leaves the House and the Senate.

Fingers crossed, we could have another island state.

Fun fact: this is the fifth time this has come up for vote. this is the only time it's passed.

I suggest an additional requirement for statehood. Puerto Rico must provide every citizen within the US with a Pernil (roast pork shoulder) dinner.
