A recent poll shows a record number of Americans aren’t feeling very patriotic as the United States celebrates its independence; with just 47% of voters saying they’re “extremely proud” to be a US citizen.
According to Gallup, the figures are the worst on record and mark a dramatic downturn from 51% in 2017 and a historic high of 70% in 2003.
“The latest results are based on a June 1-13 poll. When Gallup first asked the question in 2001, 55% of Americans said they were extremely proud. After the 9/11 terror attacks caused the public to rally around the nation and its leaders, the percentage expressing extreme pride in the country increased to 65%, and went up further to 70% less than two years later,” adds the survey.
“While the 47% who are extremely proud to be Americans is a new low, the vast majority of Americans do express some level of pride, including 25% who say they are ‘very proud’ and 16% who are ‘moderately proud,’” says Gallup.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: New Polls Show Democrats' Advantage COLLAPSING
Democrats across the country are sounding the alarm after new polling shows liberal candidates are slowly losing ground to their GOP opponents just months before the high-stakes 2018 midterm elections.
According to new surveys published by Real Clear Politics, the Democrat advantage has largely vanished; shrinking from a whipping 13 points in December to just four points at the end of May.
The poll cites a list of Trump’s achievements as the motivating factor behind the ‘Trump Bump,’ saying tax cuts helped energize the President’s base while average Americans across the country are beginning to “question” the entire Mueller investigation.
“There’s a couple of things going on. I think the good economic news is starting to break through. I think people are starting to question where the Mueller investigation is going. I think it had kept the president down for a while. And I think the tax cuts energized the Republican base and are playing a role in the president’s improving fortunes,” writes the survey.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Poll Shows Americans Side with TRUMP on Economy, Security
The mainstream media’s highly-anticipated “blue wave” is turning into a potential “red tide” ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, with new polls showing Americans overwhelmingly side with the President on the economy and national security.
A new survey published by Zogby Analytics shows likely voters “trust” the White House on key issues facing American families just months before voters head to the polls to decide the fate of Congress.
When asked “Who do you Trust more?” on handling economic issues, 41% of those asked said the President, compared to 35% who said the Democrats.
Trump also topped liberal lawmakers 40% to 38% when asked about national security.
“Could Trump prove to be the difference maker for Republicans in 2018? The data does point in this direction but the election is still six months out. Now Republican congressional candidates must decide if they want President Trump to blaze the campaign trail for them. That could prove to be wise at the moment,” said the poll.
