POLL: Only 63% of American Adults Are “Proud to be an American”

Record low national pride.

Published

on

American citizenship is increasingly meaningless for a considerable demographic of American adults.

New polling from Gallup indicates that a record low percentage of American adults describe themselves as “proud to be an American.” Only 63% of poll respondents in the June poll answered the question in the affirmative, when asked if they were either “very proud” or “extremely proud” to be an American.

The combined 63% of Americans who identified with national pride is the lowest combined percentage of adults who answered as such since Gallup first began polling public opinion on the question in 2001. The decline in national percentage appears to coincide concisely with the nationwide race riots and protests following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd during an arrest.

Curiously, a breakdown of the data suggests that pride in being an American has declined primarily among Republicans. Democratic pride in being an American declined starkly after Donald Trump’s election and inauguration, but has actually increased slightly in the wake of the protests and riots.

As the major American institutions are wholly dominated and weaponized by the cultural left in an scorched-effort campaign to punish traditional and conservative Americans, it’s probably more likely than not that pride in being an American will continue to decline, most prominently among the demographics that have traditionally expressed it in the most resounding fashion.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
