Shocking.  Shocking I say!

Via the Washington Examiner:

In recognition of Independence Day, Gallup has released a poll on whether American citizens are still proud to be American.

Ninety-three percent of Republicans indicate that they are “extremely/very proud” to be American while only 85 percent of Democrats feel the same way.

Eighty-one percent of political Independents indicate they are “extremely/very proud.”

Likewise, 89 percent of poll respondents who identified themselves as conservative are “extremely/very proud,” to be American compared to 76 percent of liberals.

Additionally, and far more troubling to think about this Independence Day, despite such high levels of pride, 71% of Americans believe the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be disappointed by how the United States has turned out.
