A record low of 38% of adults said they were extremely proud to be American, according to a survey published Wednesday from Gallup, though the majority of respondents still report having pride in their nationality.
Some 65% of respondents were extremely or very proud to be American, down 4 percentage points from 2021 but up from a record-low of 63% in 2020.
A record low of 58% of Republicans were extremely proud to be American, compared to 34% of Independents, also a record low, and 26% of Democrats.
A total of 72% of men were extremely or very proud to be American, compared to 60% of women.
A total of 80% of people aged 55 or older were extremely or very proud of their nationality, compared to 64% of respondents aged 35 to 54 and 48% of respondents aged 18 to 34.
Comparatively, a record high of 70% of those who were extremely proud to be American was reported in 2003, and a record high of 91% of those who were extremely or very proud was reported in 2004.
Gallup’s 2022 survey was taken from June 1 to 20—after the deadly shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, but before the controversial Supreme Court ruling that overturned the constitutional right to abortion.
Another survey from Gallup taken during the same time frame showed that just 25% of American adults have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the Supreme Court, also a record low since Gallup began tracking data in 1973. In May, Gallup reported only 16% of American adults were satisfied with the way things were going in the U.S. at the time, and 18% of respondents approved of the way Congress was handling its job.
