Politics: American Pride

The Pew Research Center just found that fewer Americans think that this country is the best. The survey finds that the share of Americans who think America is the most exceptional, standing above all other nations, has fallen 10 percentage points since 2011, to 28% of Americans. The percent of people who think that America is “one of the greatest” countries in the world has increased, though. Republicans are more likely, as before, to believe that America is exceptional than Democrats, but the rate of Republicans who hold America in such high esteem has dropped since 2011. As we finish up our July 4th weekend, we can ask ourselves the same question – is America the greatest country in the world? Or is it just great?
