We don’t think we’ve ever seen a poll get so much mileage in the media as the recent one by Gallup showing that the number of citizens who consider themselves “extremely proud” to be American is at a record low — never mind that it’s Democrats dragging the number down, as 74 percent of Republicans call themselves extremely proud to be Americans.
The Washington Post picked Independence Day to highlight that poll and others to determine that Americans aren’t feeling so proud this July 4th.

Wrong! Millions of us are feeling as prideful as ever to call America home.
• The economy is booming.
• Unemployment is better than ever.
• Justice Kennedy recently announced he’s retiring.

I love when WaPo blatantly forgets to speak to literally any American from outside the coastal citadels. #happyfourth #🇺🇸

“Liberals”. Fixed it for you. And the only reason is that Trump is president. Republicans were with obama and remain proud today.

Oh really? I haven’t been this proud of my country in quite a while (Reagan years). Finally a president that cares about our country again. So, Washington Post, suck cock. https://t.co/U7Q08M8ITq

Disgusting propaganda. You all really, really need to leave your bubble.
Everyone seems pretty happy and unified here in flyover country. And we know how to party.
God bless America! 🇺🇸

Everyday I wake up knowing I live in the best damn country in the history of the world. Liberals can try to destroy that, but they never will.

Those who have no pride in our Constitution, what this country has achieved, and what that Constitution will allow us to achieve have no place staying in the United States of America.

WaPo can't even muster up enough decency to leave their division by opining alone on a patriotic all American holliday.

The whole MSM goal is to OVERWHELM people with negativity to try and influence opinions. It’s all they have left. They hope, along with the fake trolls, that weak minded people feel they aren’t thinking like the “false majority”, and decide to change opinions.

It’s a glorious time to be an American! You’re creating negativity where it doesn’t exist! 🙂
