Sujit Choudhry and three other experts wrote an open letter to the Spanish and Catalan governments. This letter called for much-needed peace and cooperation between the two entities. There has been a lot of tension between them due to the whole thing with Catalonia trying to be independent. Catalan is a region of Spain that has a very unique culture. Supposedly, a lot of Catalan people want to secede and operate as their own country. The only problem is that it has been really difficult to collect enough data to know whether the majority of Catalan people actually want such a thing to occur.
Just because it seems like they really want to, that does not mean that most of them actually want to. For example, there are pictures online of large banners in sports arenas that allude to a Catalan desire of succession. However, in reality, a small minority of people may actually think like this. Just because this opinion is strongly communicated, that does not mean that everybody has it. A good example would be the 2016 presidential election in the United States of America. People in the media, as well as various social and professional circles, were so anti-Trump. As a result, all types of media were saturated with anti-Trump opinions. However, the media did not actually represent the proportion of people in America with anti-Trump views. In fact, at least half, if not more than half, of Americans were pro-Trump. The major, most liberal cities had very pro-Hillary and anti-Trump views. These very large, very liberal cities have the loudest voices in them. However, outside of those areas most places were actually pro-Trump. There were many people who would have voted Democrat if Democratic Party did not come off as being unbelievably crazed and shady. This is why it is so important to put as much effort in as possible to figure out the true percentage of Catalan people who actually do want secession.
