A new Gallup poll reveals that only 45 percent of respondents were “extremely proud” to be an American, making this the least patriotic polling since Gallup began asking the question in 2001. “Unsurprisingly, only 22% of respondents claiming they were Democrats agreed with that sentiment as opposed to a whopping 76% of Republicans. 41% of independents said they were ‘extremely proud,'” reported Daily Wire. Americans were most “extremely proud” of being American between 2002 and 2004 when the nation rallied to the red, white, and blue following 9/11. The pro-America divide between the Left and Right is more stark than ever, and we predict it’ll cut heavily against Democrats next year.

A new Gallup poll has disturbing news: the percentage of respondents claiming they were “extremely proud” to be American was the lowest since Gallup started asking that question in 2001.
Only 45% of respondents said they were “extremely proud to be American.” Unsurprisingly, only 22% of respondents claiming they were Democrats agreed with that sentiment as opposed to a whopping 76% of Republicans. 41% of independents said they were “extremely proud.”
Only a slight difference was found between men and women; 48% of men said they were “extremely proud” while 43% of women agreed. But an enormous chasm separated older respondents from younger ones; 63% of adults over 65 agreed they felt “extremely proud” while only 24% of those between 18 and 29 agreed.
