Only 36% of young people are proud to be Americans. This was revealed this Monday, July 4, by a joint survey between Issues & Insights and Tippinsights (I & I / TIPP). In that sense, only 6% say they are “not proud at all” and 8% say they are only “a little proud”.

However, the study explains that among blacks and Hispanics, who are repeatedly described as victims of American racism and bigotry, pride is strong. The survey found that 55% of blacks and 57% of Hispanics say they are extremely or very proud to be American. Only 7% of blacks and 9% of Hispanics say they are not at all proud of their American nationality.

The I & I / TIPP survey was conducted by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence from June 30 to July 2 and includes responses from 1,424 adults, giving it a margin of error of +/- 2.8 points. The agencies detail that this is the first paper in a weekly collaborative effort between Issues & Insights and TIPP to provide survey results on a wide range of questions selected by I&I editors.

Meanwhile, the situation is different for adults. American pride rises to 59% for those between 25 and 44 years old; 75% for those between 45 and 64; and finally, 86% for those over 65.

Likewise, the survey assured that “the results show that the concerted attempts by the left to portray the country as fundamentally racist, corrupt, unjust and in need of transformation have not had much impact on the general population, with one exception.”
