Poll: Fewer Democrats say they are proud to be Americans

There has been a drop in the percentage of Democrats who say they are proud to be Americans, a new survey finds.

According to a Gallup poll, 67 percent of Democrats say they are "extremely" or "very" proud to be Americans. 

That number has dropped 11 percent since 2016, when 78 percent of Democrats said they were proud to be Americans.

It is the lowest number recorded by Gallup, which first asked the question in January 2001. In January 2007, just 74 percent of Democrats said they were proud to be Americans — the previous low.

The 2017 survey found in addition to the 67 percent of Democrats who are extremely or very proud to be Americans, another 18 percent say they are "moderately" proud and 9 percent say they are "only a little proud." Another 5 percent say they are "not at all proud."

The survey finds 92 percent of Republicans say they are extremely or very proud to be Americans, and 73 percent of independents say the same.

Three-quarters of Americans overall say they are extremely or very proud to be Americans.

The poll was conducted from March 9 to 29 among 1,526 adults. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
