Only 29% of liberals say they are “extremely proud” to be American

It’s a very unpatriotic Fourth of July for Democrats, as their enthusiasm across the country remains at an all-time low.

Just 29 percent of liberals say they are “extremely proud” to be American as the nation celebrates its 247th birthday on Tuesday.

At the same time, most Republicans remain very patriotic, with 60 percent saying they are extremely proud to be American, in response to new Gallup data. But that’s down from 86 percent in the 20 years since the 9/11 attacks.

Independents, his or her half, fall in the middle, with 33 percent saying they are extremely proud to be American.

The percentage of Americans who basically say they are patriotic has been declining for years.

Democrats saw a decline in patriotism especially throughout Trump’s presidency, only to recover after Joe Biden became president in 2021.

At the same time as Democratic patriotism plummeted, Republicans saw a wave of popular excitement during the Trump years that waned when Biden replaced him.

The last time a majority of Democrats said they were extremely satisfied with their nation was in 2013, throughout Barack Obama’s second term.

The current Gallup numbers, which combine membership, are among the best demographic indicators for expressing joy nationwide.

Meanwhile, the proportion of Americans who believe the state of ethical values ​​in the US is “poor” has increased.

In addition to identification, age can predict an American’s enthusiasm across the country.

While 50 percent of American adults aged 55 and over say they are extremely proud to be American, 40 percent of those aged 35 to 54 say they are, and 18 percent of those aged 18 to 34 say they are identically.

The plurality of Republicans who believe American values ​​are “bad” has grown over the past three years and now stands at 74 percent, nearly double the number 20 years ago.

By contrast, 38% of Democrats and 51% of independents said the same, the highest numbers in three years.

Overall, in the report, more than fifty percent of Americans believe that the ethical situation in the United States is “poor.”

The top ethical flaw cited by 18 percent of Americans is a lack of “concern for others.”

However, 11 percent of Republicans said a lack of religion or belief was the top ethical flaw.

The new Gallup numbers also show changes in household values.

Recently, the diversity of American 40-year-olds who are never married has increased significantly.

A whopping 25 percent of people in the age group responding to the Pew Research Center’s 2021 challenge are not married at all, up from just six percent in 1980.
