‘FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED’: Fewer People Are ‘Extremely Proud’ to be American

Published on July 4, 2015

It looks like Obama has taught other Americans to have the same feelings for America as he does.

Fewer people are “extremely proud” to be American, according to new polling from Gallup.

The pollster finds that 54 percent are “extremely proud” to be American, which is down from around 70 percent between 2002 and 2004. The percentage may have jumped in those years after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Gallup released the new numbers just before the July 4 holiday.
