In Gallup polling, American patriotism hits a new low record.

American Patriotism

On the eve of July 4th, on the American Independence annual celebration occasion, in new Gallup polling, satisfaction in being an American hit an all-time lowest record.

Less than four in ten adults said that they were "extremely" proud to be American, the smallest ever measure taken by Gallup inquiring questions since 2001.

Since the question inquiry, 38 percent of Proud Americans are well below the average of 55 percent.

Actually, before 2015, Gallup didn’t discover that less than 55 percent of people expressed "extreme" pride.

Republicans remain the group most likely to say extreme pride in the country, but that number has now fallen to 58 percent, a significant drop from 75 percent in 2019.

Only 34 percent of independents expressed that they were extremely proud of America, down from 41 percent who said similar in 2019.

Writes Gallup's Megan Brenan, "these data are from a June 1-20 poll that was conducted after mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, claimed 31 lives including 19 children.  

The polling also preceded the US Supreme Court's highly anticipated and controversial ruling overturning Roe v. Wade."

Take the example of the US Supreme Court. According to Gallup, in 2001, 62 percent of American citizens had the best opinion of the US Supreme Court.

After 20 years, that number has gone down about 40 percent and will almost definitely be low after Roe's decision.
