As Twitchy reported Monday, a new Gallup poll shows that a record low number of Americans consider themselves “extremely proud” to be Americans, although the gap between political parties was substantial. Only 32 percent of Democrats would call themselves “extremely proud” to be Americans as opposed to 74 percent of Republicans.
Count former MSNBC host Touré among those who are helping bring that number down to a record low:
Gallup: A record-low 47% of Americans are extremely proud to be Americans. I get it. I’m not extremely proud to be an American right now. Are you?

Hey, the guy asked.
Just here for the ratio.

Yes, and so were the vast majority of Republicans when Obama was president https://t.co/iCEpae6iqY

Republicans generally don’t judge whether they’re proud to be Americans based on who is president.

Well, I'm not proud you're an American. Does that count?

I'm not proud you are an american either. I thought we were made of sterner stuff.

Try not politicizing everything, seeing race in everything, and equating politicians to America and you might get there.

Hell yes. What’s wrong with you.

The US *must* be the greatest nation on Earth.
Those who live in it, and hate it, wouldn't DREAM of leaving it.
Those who DON'T live in it, and hate it, will risk their lives to get here.

Very much so. Spend enough time in the non-western world among the non-elite and you would be too. Whoever is in the White House is NOT the whole country and if you think it is, then it's YOU that has the problem.
— Michael Openshaw (@mopenshaw) July 4, 2018
I've ALWAYS been proud to be a patriotic United States citizen. Those that aren't proud aren't patriots.

I love my country! Regardless of which political party has the majority. My life changes by my effort! Not these jackasses making policies! Our system may have flaws, but it's the best one going in the world!

I’m very proud to be an American. Sorry you’re miserable. Happy Independence Day??

Why yes, yes I am. I was proud to be an American when Obama was in office too

Have always and will always be proud to be American!

My pride in being American doesn't change with the administration.
Trust the Process.

I am EXTREMELY PROUD to be an American. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. I am also EXTREMELY GRATEFUL to be an American, and I will eternally be

If you give up on your country because you don’t like who won the White House you have no idea what it means to be an American.
— Crash (@Boognish12) July 4, 2018
My pride in America isn't dependent upon whether I'm throwing a tantrum because MY Candidate Didn't Win.

Yeah I am, please just travel a bit and see how privileged you are to even be able to say something like this with no repercussions.

I would gladly swap ungrateful Americans for immigrants that will pledge their allegiance.

I am proud and always have been. No matter who was in office or whatever stupid decision they made, I have always been proud of my country and looked out for my fellow countrymen

Everyday more so, I feel like we are somehow making America great again. Would even be a nice slogan. Say it, you know you want to. ?
— Mitch the Switch (@Geek_Gearhead) July 4, 2018
You bet. It was actually a record low of Democrats that brought down the average. Hey, move to Mexico. They just voted in a socialist president. You’ll love it.
— Tarl (@TarlofGore) July 4, 2018
I always get teary when I vote. I have since I was 18. I never take for granted the incredible freedom I was given for simply being born here. And I get a vote in how my beautiful country is governed. I don’t always get my way but I’m still so lucky and blessed I got to vote.
— Suzanne (@Sssuzannaaaa) July 4, 2018
Yes, as a Puerto Rican I could not be more proud to be a US citizen!

I was proud to be an American through 8 years of the Obama presidency, even though I opposed many of his policies. My patriotism isn’t dependent on who’s in the Oval Office. Too bad you don’t really love your country. Feel free to live elsewhere.
— Lady L. North (@LadyLNorth) July 4, 2018
Yes. Also, does getting ratio'd for asking this count as a poll?
— Holly (@HAAddison) July 4, 2018
I haven't voted for the last two men who have occupied the White House and distress everyday over certain things happening in our country…and I am damn hell proud to be American. USA
— John Rook (@JohnRook3) July 4, 2018
Yes, very much so. Have always been. So much so, I was willing to put my life on the line to protect it and my 300+ million fellow Americans for 30 years.

This is the greatest country on earth. I’m damn proud to be an American and am humbled by the thousands of men and women that have paid the ultimate price. I will never lose my pride regardless of which party is in power.
