Default In U.S., Record-Low 47% Extremely Proud to Be Americans

I've said this, on more than one occasion, in real life...I know I've said it, here on the forum, at least once...

An alien falls to earth and lands in America, meets someone, and says "So this is `America`...Tell me about it"...

If the person he meets is a Republican, the Republican would say, "America has some issues here and there, but let me spend the next four hours telling you how great it is."...

If the person he meets is a Democrat, the Democrat would say, "America has some good things here and there, but let me spend the next four hours telling you how bad it is."...



This Gallup poll shows it in detail...

Whenever a "side" loses a presidency to the other party, some will automatically turn on the country and attack it...Trump's presidency shows this even more than previous presidents...

But notice this fact...

The Democrats were below 50% for YEARS pre-Trump...Even when they had the Messiah, himself, running things with his pen and his phone, and even AFTER their precious ObamaCare was passed, made law, and upheld in the Supreme Court, they STILL couldn't even get HALF of Democrats to say they were extremely proud of their country...

And now that they're out of power, they can't even get ONE-THIRD to say it...

In U.S., Record-Low 47% Extremely Proud to Be Americans



Quote:
Currently, 32% of Democrats -- down from 43% in 2017 and 56% in 2013 -- are extremely proud. The decline preceded the election of Donald Trump but has accelerated in the past year.

Less than half of independents, 42%, are also extremely proud. That is down slightly from 48% a year ago, and 50% in 2013.

As has typically been the case, Republicans are more inclined to say they are extremely proud to be Americans than are Democrats and independents. Seventy-four percent of Republicans are extremely proud, which is numerically the highest over the last five years.

With the large decline among Democrats, the Republican-Democratic gap in extreme pride has grown from 15 percentage points in 2013 to 42 points today.

Political liberals are even less likely than Democrats to say they are extremely proud -- just 23% do so, compared with 46% of moderates and 65% of conservatives. Extreme pride among liberals has dropped nine points in the past year and 28 points since 2013.
Even when Obama was president, Republicans that were extremely proud to be American was still CONSISTENTLY over 20% more than Democrats...

It must be so hard to believe the sky is falling EVERY DAY...And I imagine not too much fun to spend time with...

I hear that Cuba has some nice year round weather and would love to bring people in that have a net worth greater than $20. Also, the political system seems to be more in line with the system of government that the Democratic party has been advocating. They should really consider moving there.

I bet she is, just as the Castro family was proud of what Fidel did for/to Cuba. So what?

The context of Michelle's for the first time I'm proud to be an American was the US electing a black. I doubt she's changed her mind much.

That's Obama's major accomplishment.
