Post As a United States Citizen would you accept Puerto Rico as a 51state?

Hi everyone!

I really need your sincere vote + opinion:

Like some of you know, the past November 6 the island of Puerto Rico had elections (like U.S.)

And in these elections was asked to the people of PR
"Do you agree with the current territorial political status" (Yes or No)

The people voted:

NO 943,094 54.00%#@
YES 803,407 46.00%
Implying that the people are not satisfied with the current status.

Then in a second question on the same ballot was asked:
"For which of these options you would vote"
The people expressed in this way:

STATEHOOD
809,652 61.13%

SOVEREIGN COMMONWEALTH
441,505 33.33%

INDEPENDENCE
73,362 5.54%

The people decided that want to be the 51 state of U.S.
I also wanna say that 472,674 people left this question in blank.

Many people from PR say that Americans do not want Puerto Rico as a state.
That if US really want Puerto Rico we would have been a state many years ago.

Now that i have given you a brief history of what ocurred in the elections in PR, I want to ask you all:

As a United States Citizen would you accept Puerto Rico as a 51state?
Give me your honest opinion


Thanks!
