Forty-six percent of Americans say it’s completely accurate to say that they’re proud to be an American. A study for the American Culture and Faith Institute found that another 36 percentsay it’s a mostly accurate description.[1]

These views are fairly similar across racial and ethnic lines. Forty-nine percent 49 percent of whites are fully comfortable with that description. So are 44 percent of black Americans and 43 percent of Hispanics.

Ideologically, however, there is a big divide. Among conservatives, 65 percent say it’s completely accurate to describe them as proud to be an American. That view is shared by 43 percent of moderates and 37 percent of liberals.

There is also a generation gap on this question. Among those over 65, two-thirds 64 percent are completely comfortable with being proud of their country. Among those under 30, just half as many 34 percent agree.

At the other end of the spectrum, only 6 percent suggest that they’re not at all proud to be an American.
