Donald Trump loves being number one at everything, he talks about that nonstop. Now, he’s number one at making U.S. citizens less proud of being American.
A poll released on Monday revealed that a record-low number of people in the United States consider themselves “extremely proud” or “very proud” to be Americans.
According to Gallup, only 47% of citizens are “extremely proud” to be Americans, which is the lowest number since the polling company began asking the question in 2001.
Gallup claimed that after the number peaked at 70% in 2003, the number of people who are “extremely proud” of being American has declined. And now it has reached its lowest point.
The poll surveyed 1,520 adults in the U.S. from June 1-13. It reports a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
