In recognition of Independence Day, Gallup has released a poll on whether American citizens are still proud to be American.
Ninety-three percent of Republicans indicate that they are “extremely/very proud” to be American while only 85 percent of Democrats feel the same way.
Eighty-one percent of political Independents indicate they are “extremely/very proud.”
Likewise, 89 percent of poll respondents who identified themselves as conservative are “extremely/very proud,” to be American compared to 76 percent of liberals.
(Editor: One wonders what would it take to make a liberal extremely proud to be an American?)
