Fox News Just Asked Why So Few Americans Are 'Extremely Proud' Of The U.S., And Twitter Was Brutally Honest
In the days leading up to the 4th of July holiday, Gallup released its annual poll asking Americans how proud they are of their country, and found our national pride has hit an all-time low.
The poll found that only 45% feel "Extremely Proud" of the United States, the lowest level polled since Gallup first started asking the question in 2001.
Since 1946, Gallup conducts an annual poll to find out which man and woman is the most admired by people in the United States. In an open-ended question, respondents are asked to name "the man and woman living anywhere in the world today whom they admire most."

Americans may just be coming off their Independence Day celebrations, but a newly-released Gallup poll indicates that Americans' pride in their country has never been more scarce. In fact, it's at the lowest level since Gallup started polling the question in 2001. While American pride has been in gradual decline for the last few years, these numbers were the first time that those "extremely proud" to be an American fell below the majority at forty-seven percent.
The poll, conducted over the first two weeks of June, does show that most Americans take at least some level of pride in their country, with only three percent saying they were not proud at all. However the combined total of those who identify as "extremely proud" or "very proud" was at seventy-two percent: another all-time low.
According to a new poll by Gallup and Sharecare, a health services company, American well-being under President Trump dropped in 21 out of 50 states and failed to improve in a single one. This is the first time in almost a decade a presidential administration performed so badly.
According to their report, the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index "includes more than 2.5 million surveys" and "captures how people feel about and experience their daily lives." The report examines well-being across the United States in five elements of well-being:
Approval of U.S. Leadership Around the World Actually Improved in Some Countries, and We Shouldn't Be Surprised
International approval of the United States dropped significantly during the first year of Donald Trump's presidency, according to a recently released Gallup Poll. Worldwide approval dropped from 48 percent to just 30 percent between March and November of 2017. This is four points less than the previous low of 34 percent under President Bush.
