Are liberals, those consistently leaning leftward proud the be an American? Lets see what the Washington Post and the polls say.
Michelle Obama took some heat in 2008 for saying that, "for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country..."
As it turns out, that sentiment isn't all that unusual on the far left of American politics. According to a new Pew Research Center study, only 40 percent of consistently liberal Americans say they often feel proud to be Americans.
So, 60% of the political left are not proud to be an American. Hm, so, why don't they relocate to say France, Greece, Portugal, even China or Russia you might ask.
On the other hand...
... it appears that just over 7 in 10 steadfast conservatives and 8 in 10 business conservatives are generally proud tom be an American.
I suppose none of these "findings" come as a real surprise. As least they don't to me. I'm curious as to where the moderates and centrists come done on this issue.
