A Gallup poll published Monday found that only 20 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 are "extremely proud to be an American." This is the lowest percentage of any demographic, falling 23 percent since 2017.
According to the poll, this is the sixth consecutive year of decline in American pride across all demographics, and the first time "extreme pride" among whites fell below 50 percent. American pride among nonwhites is 24 percent.
The partisan gap in American pride also fell to 43 percent from 54 percent a year ago. This year, 67 percent of Republicansa 9 point drop from last yearand 24 percent of Democrats said they are extremely proud to be an American.

Thank you, demonicRAT run school system.
Don’t worry fags and 90 pound women are going to volunteer to be soldiers and cops. They will protect us.
Common core baby. Its been about 12 years.
Considering they don’t even know which bathroom is appropriate, I doubt they understand what the word even means.
The legacy of Howard Zinn and Bill Ayers, 2 naked Communists.
The anti-American hatred is coming from the public schools and universities. From those places, it is propagated to businesses and governments.
I always considered David Bowie’s “Young Americans” the dividing line between “old” and “new” pop music:
“But the freak, and his type, all for nothing
Misses a step and cuts his hand, but
Showing nothing, he swoops like a song
She cries, “Where have all Papa’s heroes gone?””
It took 46 years, but his “Young Americans” are here.
This is the result of parents who don’t care what their kids are taught in school. It’s been going on for some time.
Years ago I read about college students not proud to be American. I asked my young relatives about being in Europe (year abroad programs) as American college students. They reported how surprised they were that foreign students were proud of their countries. Not one American kid around them was. They were proud of their states or cities but not their country
It’s all fun and games until the cell towers don’t work and the the supermarkets are closed.
THIS is something that is very hard to come back from.
I pray Trump wins again and I think he will, though I think his victory will hasten a civil war or at least a lot of skirmishes.
Good. The longer we wait, the worse it is for our side.
Though I was dems would be the loyal opposition, I fear those days are gone.
When a speaker of the house rips up a president’s speech, you know gunshots aren’t that far away.
Um, did we really need a poll to tell us this?
“...Thank you, demonicRAT run school system....”
BINGO! When will parents stand up and fight??
His defeat would hasten a civil war, certainly.
The Dems were always the opposition, but never loyal.
This first started with the changes to education in the ‘60s (new math, anyone?) and was accelerated by creation of the Department of Education (another of Carter’s failed legacies). Common Core was the latest failure.

Id also assign a good portion of the blame to the media. Tonights news: America is bad. Heres why America is bad.
Is it possible to undue 20 years of brainwashing? I doubt it.
I seriously doubt any of these idiots have read Zinn.
Why would someone want to express pride in a country built on racism, slavery, and exploitation? After all, if that is what they are taught, I am surprised any of them are patriotic.
