National pride has plummeted in recent years, with just 67% of surveyed adults saying they are extremely proud or very proud to be American, according to the most recent Gallup poll. That's up slightly from the record low of 63% in 2020 but still way below the beginning of the millennium, when around 90% of adults were extremely or very proud of being American.

Republicans are much more likely than Democrats and Independents to express pride in America, according to Gallup.
