Democrats Ashamed of America: Their Pride in Our Country Has Fallen Exponentially

Gallup's new poll as July 4 approaches is very telling

A new poll conducted by Gallup finds that the number of Americans expressing “extreme” pride in our country has fallen to its lowest point since the question was asked starting in 2001.

While Republican response to the patriotic measure has stayed fairly consistent throughout the years — Democrat pride in the country has fallen exponentially since the election of President Donald Trump.

And it continues to get worse.

Survey results show that as the Fourth of July holiday celebration approaches, while 70 percent of Americans say they are proud of their country, less than 50 percent said they were “extremely proud” for the second straight year.

Democrats ashamed. What is the driving force behind that anti-American sentiment? Simple: Democrats in the era of President Trump.

“Democrats continue to lag far behind Republicans in expressing extreme pride in the U.S.,” Gallup writes.

A report in The Hill captures the fact that those in the Republican Party do not allow politics to affect their patriotism, whereas Democrats are clearly only proud of their country when people they like are in office.

“Republicans’ latest reading — 76 percent — is 10 points below the record high in 2003, according to Gallup,” The Hill relays. “Republicans’ extreme pride has never fallen below 68 percent, even when former President Barack Obama was in office, the survey giant noted.”

Republicans have always loved their country, no matter who is in the White House. Democrats — not so much.

“The latest overall declines in patriotism are largely driven by Democrats,” Gallup explains.

“Democrats’ latest 22 percent extreme pride reading is the group’s lowest in Gallup’s 19 years of measurement, and is half of what it was several months before Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory” (emphasis added).

Less than one in four Democrats is “extremely proud” of America.

And a higher percentage lost that feeling after Trump’s election.

It certainly comes as no surprise that Democrats are embarrassed about the country with Trump at the helm. There can, however, be an argument that even prior to that, a good portion of them didn’t think that highly of America in the first place, in our view.

Socialist curmudgeon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced that “there is something fundamentally immoral and wrong” about America.

Several prominent Democrats running to become this nation’s next White House leader have expressed their disdain for the country.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, said America “was never as great as advertised.”

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) has said, “There’s things that are savagely wrong in this country.”

Socialist curmudgeon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced that “there is something fundamentally immoral and wrong” about America.

They want to fundamentally transform this great country into a liberal cesspool.

We already know this about the Democrat Party; the Gallup poll simply confirms their hatred of this nation.
