Eye-opening poll tells how many Democrats are ‘extremely proud’ to be Americans compared to Republicans

Less than one-third of Democrats are “extremely proud” to be Americans, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday.

Only 32 percent of Democrats rated themselves as “extremely proud” to be Americans, while 74 percent of Republicans rated themselves as such, according to the poll.

This is the lowest number for Democrats and the highest number for Republicans since 2013, according to the poll. The percentage of Democrats extremely proud to be Americans dropped 24 percentage points from 2013, when former President Barack Obama was in office.

Overall, 47 percent of those surveyed were extremely proud to be Americans.

White Americans are also more likely to be extremely proud to be Americans than non-white Americans at 54 percent compared to 33 percent, according to the poll. The percentage extremely proud to be Americans also increases with age, with 33 percent of those 18 to 29 years old extremely proud and 58 percent of those 65 and older extremely proud.

The low numbers may be related to how Americans think they are viewed by other countries. A February 2018 Gallup poll revealed that at that time, only 29 percent of Americans believed that world leaders respected President Donald Trump.

The poll was conducted over the phone from June 1 to 13, with 1,520 adults of voting age sampled. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
