Reverting D.C. to Maryland?

The idea of reverting all of Washington, D.C. or at least its residential sections to Maryland is not new; there used to be a southern portion of D.C. across the Potomac that reverted to Virginia long ago, which in no way has prevented the Pentagon and similar installations from functioning as federal buildings just like those housing other cabinet departments. Whatever the idea’s logic, however, it would seem to be a political non-starter. “According to an April 2016 poll, only 28% of Marylanders support annexing DC, while 44% are opposed.” [Chad Hughes, Greater Greater Washington]
