ALBANY (NEWS10) – As the country gets ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, are you feeling patriotic?
Only 45% of U.S. adults say they are “extremely” proud to be Americans, according to a Gallup Poll.
More than 1,000 Americans were surveyed and the poll’s findings reflect an all-time low since the survey first began in 2001. The highest levels of patriotism and support for the country occurred between 2002 and 2004, right after 9/11.
NEWS10’S Cassie Hudson spoke to Capital Region residents to find out how patriotic they’re feeling.
