It seems that a slim majority of Puerto Ricans are tired of its casual relationship with the United States. They want something more steady. Something like statehood. That's right, Puerto Ricans passed a non-binding referendum in favor of statehood with 61% in favor and 33% preferring the status quo, the Associated Press reports.
But the vote doesn't account for the nearly 500,000 Puerto Ricans who left their ballots blank, and others question the referendum's legitimacy.
