In recognition of Independence Day, Gallup has released a poll on whether American citizens are still proud to be American.

Ninety-three percent of Republicans indicate that they are “extremely/very proud” to be American while only 85 percent of Democrats feel the same way.

Eighty-one percent of political Independents indicate they are “extremely/very proud.”

Likewise, 89 percent of poll respondents who identified themselves as conservative are “extremely/very proud,” to be American compared to 76 percent of liberals.

I noticed there was no l ink to the poll. That usually means there is more information than what's portrayed in this post....and indeed there is...

Most in U.S. Still Proud to Be an American
But 71% say the signers of the declaration would be disappointed
by Frank Newport

PRINCETON, NJ -- As the United States celebrates Independence Day, most of its adult residents continue to say they are proud to be an American, including 57% who are extremely proud and 28% who are very proud. This high level of pride in being an American has varied only moderately over the past 12 years since the question was first asked, but has been lower since 2005 than it was in the years prior.

ROFLMAO... No amount of nasty icons can obscure the truth. Tim Burr posted about a Gallup poll. I posted that poll and it says something different than what is portrayed by Tim Burr in the first post. Simple as that!

Have a nice day!

Well, we've seen Democrats in the White House who were only proud of America for the first time, after 40 some years of living here.

And apparently that was because she knew from then on, life would be one continuous vacation.
