    Puerto Rico -51st state?

    Although this won by 97%, only 23% voted.

    Wow! It's too bad that the turnout was so tiny. Will it help with the financial problems that PR has had, if their petition to become a state is supported by Congress?

    I think they will start to recieve federal funding if they do. The other problem is, will a predominantly conservative Congress welcome a largely Democratic island territory as a state?
    Some of them have a hard time accepting Hawaii as a state right now.
