Less Than 50% Of Americans Are ‘Extremely Proud’ Of America For The Second Year In A Row

American pride has reached its lowest point since 2001.

Less than 50% of Americans, on average, are “extremely proud” of the country for the second consecutive year, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

While 70% of people polled are generally “proud” to be American, 45% are “extremely proud,” which marks the second year in a row the majority of voters are not “extremely proud.” The average pride rating was 47% in 2018.

Comparatively, 22% of Democrats polled, however, are “extremely proud” of the U.S., which represents the lowest American pride ratings in 19 years of Gallup polling and half the amount of pride Democrats felt before President Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory.

Of Republicans, 76% are “extremely proud,” which is 8% higher than when former President Barack Obama was in office, and 41% of Independent voters feel extreme American pride — also the lowest in Gallup’s polling history.

Women, liberals and younger adults expressed the lowest pride ratings.

The majority of Americans polled were most proud of U.S. scientific achievements, the military, culture and arts, the economy, and sports achievements; they were least proud of the country’s political and health systems. The No. 1 political issue facing the U.S. is immigration., according to a July 19 Gallup poll.

Americans were most proud of the country between 2002 and 2004 after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
